Turia exits Parliament in disgust over Labour attempts to stall Super City law

Turia exits Parliament in disgust over Labour attempts to stall Super City lawLabour’s stalling tactics on bills to set up the new Auckland Super City council have gone too far and are wasting taxpayers’ money, says Maori Party co-leader Tariana Turia.

Labour are burning a considerable amount of bridges right now with their silly continuation of their filibuster. Apart from the fact that they are wasting an enourmous amount of taxpayers money, burning cash at a rate of something approaching $7,000,000 per day they will ultimately fail and then all we as taxpayers will have for the efforts is a fucking big bill to pay.

Obviously Labour thinks opposing the Super City bill is a far more important issue than ramming antidemocratic anti-freedom of speech laws through under urgency in their time in government. I say this because so far they have spent far more time opposing the SUper City Bill than they did putting through the hated and now defunct Electoral Finance Act.

The media and then the public will turn on this blatent waste of public funds to prop up the ego of a failing leader and a hopeless candidate in Mt Albert. Phil Goff’s leadership is clearly on the line and David Shearer is at huge risk in Mt Albert if this strategy fails.
