News just in from a NOT PC roving correspondent that Gerry Brownlee has ordered up 100 double-cab utes “for Christchurch earthquake recovery.”
New, not second-hand.
Double-cabs, not even your average cheap-jack big-tray ute.
Perhaps because only100 really big utes can fill up the carparks of Gauleiter Brownlee’s failing "frame"?
The mind boggles.
Who or what will be using these?
Have they been using bicycles until now?
And who exactly is paying?
That last question, of course, is an easy one.
And by the time the taxpayers’ bill is finally in – after liners have been fitted and logos painted on and the 100 utes transported down from Auckland and the 100 double cabs filled with all those clipboards that Brownlee’s brand of earthquake non-recovery requires -- you can rest assured your bill will be north of ten million or so.
You can thank Gerry next time you see him.
