I heard Phil Goff on RNZ today bleating on about how NZ’s taxpayers should foot the bill to solve Auckland’s water problems as “what’s good for Auckland is good for NZ blah blah’’. Not a word about constraining sprawling growth or living within their means This is the man, I remind myself, that bought 105 light armoured vehicles and 321 even more useless Pinzgauers for about 750 million dollars in 2005 and had the gall to say in 2015 “ with the benefit of hindsight we bought a few too many”. How about “I accept we made the wrong choice” Phil? The one good thing is, when I get angry about our duplicitous mayor, it is somewhat consoling to think Auckland has one almost as bad.
