"We have maintained a silence closely resembling stupidity" - Neil Roberts

Until we have legislation adopted into law to ensure fiduciary accountability and transparency in public affairs we will continue to have human rights breached because the existing crown immunity and lack of any independent oversight invites corruption to flourish.

Public service wages - how your taxes are spent:

It's unbelievable what some public servants are being paid, here is proof of what Earthquake Commission claims managers are being paid - $800-$1300 per day. Note the ease with which the outrageous amounts are just accepted by 'Paul'. This is where your taxes are going folks:

Good Morning John and Paul

I have elected to review the remuneration paid to Derek and Julie.

Julie is currently working in a management role and is working additional hours for which she has not been claiming extra for. She has provided commitment to this role and accordingly her remuneration should reflect the additional effort she has put in. I have therefore increased her daily rate to $800.00.

Derek is no longer working as an office manager but has taken on the role and responsibility of Manager Claims Processing. He has direct reporting lines to myself. IN view of the additional responsibility and recognition of the effort he has made his daily rate will now be $1300.

Both of the above are effective from 1 November 2010.

And here's what these public servants are spending OUR money on: In the High Court at Wellington yesterday, EQC worker Brendan John Clarke, 37, was sentenced to four years and eight months jail for possessing what the police said was a $1 million shipment of cocaine for the purpose of supply.

Justice Robert Dobson said the 2.985kg of cocaine was brought into New Zealand in the bottom of a foreign drug courier's suitcase. The Mexican courier, David Negrete Nevarez, was sentenced last week to seven years jail.

And meanwhile, hundreds of elderly Christchurch residents are demanding answers to why it's taking so long to get action regarding their damaged homes, well this is the reason why, because EQC staff are robbing the taxpayers blind and want to keep their snouts in the trough for as long as possible!

Thank goodness, people are holding them accountable and providing more transparency into what the EQC are spending our hard earned taxes on.

EQC Truths have recently published further information about the exhorbitant sums of taxpayer's money paid to EQC staff.
