One of the strengths of Kiwiblog is DPF’s want to let those holding a contrary opinion to what might be considered right wing orthodoxy to express their view notwithstanding the fact that in doing so it is likely to result in the more flinty eyed among us dumping on him for betraying conservative values.
And so it is that Kiwiblog featured a post here by Murray Gibb, sometime CE of Water NZ, arguing the case for Three Waters. It is a long article and worth a read but the final paragraph stands out … ‘There is one area where the government has completely mucked up with its proposals, and that is in governance. Having 50 percent of Board members being appointed by Iwi is just simply nonsense. Tribal governance systems have no place in modern capitalist democracies ….‘.
Amen and double Amen to that.
