Remember when Auckland mayor Phil Goff pledge to hold rates to 2.5%? As far back as 2015 he told Morning Report, "There is a limit to rate increases, and I think we've reached that limit.” That was just before Lying Len Brown and his cronies hiked them by 9.9%.
But far from acknowledging we are now well beyond the limit, Goff instead is following in the footsteps of his predecessor. We’re going to limit rates increases to 2.5%? No, stuff that. That was then. That was when he was campaigning for the mayor’s job. Now he has it, he doesn’t want to hold rates or cap rates or limit them. Quite the contrary. Just four months after being elected the lying piece of shit now wants to raise your rates by 16%. The council, he says, “is running out of alternatives to increasing rates by 16 percent next year.”
Here’s one very sound alternative, you toerag, and I can give it to you for nothing: Stop Spending So Goddamn Much.
Goff is a trough-dweller wholly ignorant even of how his trough gets filled.
People who vote for entities like this deserve them. The rest of us: we get punished.
Feel free to message the lying turd and tell him how you feel about his deception.
