The limits to government action are generally measured by the apathy of the populace. For too long, New Zealanders have been pushed around and trodden up on by scum, with the only response to the bullying being some quiet moaning over the dinner table. But New Zealanders' apathy has made the scum more grasping, not less.
For once, tomorrow, the apathy is over. The anger of New Zealanders at all the thieving and the nannying and all the venal power lust will be directed at government through thousands of truckies in cities across the country protesting the overnight raid on their wallets by Annette King -- protesting against a government, and a minister, who has proved better at doing us over than it has at protecting us, and has now taken the opportunity to prove that by putting the boot into an industry which is already on the canvas from rising fuel prices.
The chaos caused by truckers tomorrow morning is a barb directed at big government on behalf of all of us. Let's get in behind them.
