    The end of DOC?

    True to the privatisation ideology and process of this government, DOC has been underfunded, especially in the face of increasing tourist numbers (strongly echoing the National government’s underfunding of urban infrastructure in the face of record immigration numbers) and is now under attack from private interests.

    He had climbed to the top of Mt Sinai in Egypt, “and at the top there are people selling you Coca Cola”, Tourism Industry Aotearoa chief executive Chris Roberts said. “We don’t want to see that in New Zealand.”

    Sorry Chris. That’s exactly what will happen. It will be the Powerade Milford track with solar powered vending machines…

      Yep they just don’t get it. Public assets should be free of corporate interests. Unless the intent is to make these assets subservient to corporate interests.

      Coal mines and coca cola vendors in our National Parks …

    • BM 1.2

      Good idea I like it.

      Doc is full of time serving dullards they’re more of a hindrance than help, the more you can sideline DOC the better.

      An injection of private sector nous is what’s needed to really springboard the tourism opportunities that exist in NZ

      • mickysavage 1.2.1

        Want to say why?

        Corporate control of our reserves is going to end in tears.

      • keepcalmcarryon 1.2.2

        Our DoC administered lands are the birthright of every kiwi to tramp, kayak, bird watch, climb, hunt, fish and enjoy however they legally please.
        They are not here and have never been here for the sole purpose of making private companies money, so I call bullshit on your attitude BM.

        • mickysavage 1.2.2.1

          Amen to that.

        • BM 1.2.2.2

          You can call bullshit on my attitude as much as you want, I don’t care.

          Facts are you want to get private business on board, these people love what our nature is they want to protect and enhance it, without it, they have no business, it’s in their best interest to make it as awesome as possible.

          If the choice is between ramping up dairy or developing our tourism sector what would you choose?

          • keepcalmcarryon 1.2.2.2.1

            Tourism can exist just fine without destroying the actual reason people come here.
            Or we go your Nat mentality, ramp up dairy, sell and pollute the water, dont control freedom campers, mine, log and commercialise public land and fuck everything.
            Some real sound thinking.
            Yes i get it you dont care – the more reason you muppets are gone this election.
            My response to you was for the general publics benefit, something you wouldnt understand 🙂

          • mickysavage 1.2.2.2.2

            “they want to protect and enhance it”

            The problem is they have no understanding that their desire to make a dollar out of nature adversely affects nature.

          • AB 1.2.2.2.3

            “private sector nous” – LOL

      • KJT 1.2.3

        “Because the private sector does things so much better”. I think that myth has been well and truly exploded, BM.

        • In Vino 1.2.3.1

          BM – you pretend that the private sector thinks about long-term viability because that is logical. Sorry to inform you that the private sector go for the greatest amount of money in the short term, because market survival dictates that. Short term greed is what the private sector goes for time after time. Not long-term viability. Early Darwinian death for long-term viability, sorry.
          To achieve long-term viability, we need strong regulation of the market, and we don’t have it.

    Government blogging mouthpiece, David Farrar is in a massive tizzy as usual. This time about this article:

    http://www.stuff.co.nz/the-press/news/92208905/christchurch-students-travel-the-equivalent-of-a-trip-to-the-moon-to-avoid-local-school

    In his horrified rant he claims;

    With around 20,000 students the finding is effectively that the average student travels an extra 2 km (each way) a day to get to their desired school. Wow wee.

    They then multiply that up to try and sound impressive.

    This is hypocrisy in all its finery when you remember Farrar parroting Dr. Nick’s line when trying to shut down concern over the gifting of free water rights to foreign bottling companies (without even getting a licensing agreement for the use of “New Zealand” for marketing, I presume).

    In that episode, Smith and his faithful lapdog David Farrar completely missed the point again as they gave us numbers which sound impressive when they told us their bottling company friends want to take a smidgen, just 0.000002%, of the 500 trillion litres of water which falls in NZ every year.

    Unbelievable turn around on National Party policy since this campaign ad.

    “Sixty-two thousand in just two years, nobody could build enough houses so the price went up and nobody could afford one.”

    It’s 140,000 in two years now.

    Firstly we will stop the urban sprawl…Having fenced off the outer limited of the major cities we will then set about bringing new life to the inner cities.”

    Oh dear. I just heard the sound of David Farrar having a heart attack.

    To do this we will have to stop the flood of people into our cities, which means we will have to control the flow of immigrants into New Zealand.

    Hmmm. That’s current Labour policy, isn’t it? And NZF, and just about anyone else you fucking ask.

    Under National immigration will be cut from 32,000 to around 5,000 very year.

    Very Winston. No wonder National thinks they have his support come September.

    A friend of mine sent me this – I’d thought I’d shear, feel free to add any government department you like, as they all have gone to the dogs under this particular government.

    IRD sends their auditor (a nasty little man) to audit a synagogue.

    The auditor is doing all the checks, and then turns to the Rabbi and
    says, “I noticed that you buy a lot of candles.”

    “Yes,” answered the Rabbi.

    “Well, Rabbi, what do you do with the candle drippings?” he asked.

    “A good question,” noted the Rabbi. “We actually save them up. When we
    have enough, we send them back to the candle maker and every now and
    then, they send us a free box of candles.”

    “Oh,” replied the auditor somewhat disappointed that his question
    actually had a practical answer. So he thought he’d try another
    question, in his obnoxious way…

    “Rabbi, what about all these matzo purchases? What do you do with the
    crumbs from the matzo?

    “Ah, yes,” replied the Rabbi calmly, “we actually collect up the crumbs,
    we send them in a box back to the manufacturer and every now and then,
    they send a free box of matzo balls.”

    “Oh,” replied the auditor, thinking hard how to fluster the Rabbi.

    “Well, Rabbi,” he went on, “what do you do with all the foreskins from
    the circumcisions?”

    “Yes, here too, we do not waste,” answered the Rabbi. “What we do is
    save up all the foreskins, and when we have enough we actually send them
    to IRD .”

    “To IRD ?” questioned the auditor in disbelief.

    “Ah, yes,” replied the Rabbi, “directly to IRD …And about once a
    year, they send us a little prick like you.”
