I went to Pasifika today with my wife of 27 years, who is a Pacific island immigrant.
What a wonderful day amongst wonderful people in a wonderful setting. We walked through the Tahiti village and into the Fiji village where we caught up with family.
After this we went to the Samoa village where upon reaching the second Fale on the right, we were approached to come and have our say on Auckland. It was an Auckland City council display collecting public feedback. I asked what the terms of reference were for comment and was told that anything I wished to pass on was welcome. I expressed my desire to comment on his worship the mayor.
Immediately I had a “minder” stand beside me and upon completion of my form he reached for it and told me “I’ll take that”. I pulled it away and stated that I was capable of placing it in the box myself, (ballot type post box, although open at the back) which I did. I turned to my wife who was still filling in her form and she asked me for a spelling check, upon which this minder came over and snatched the form from her and said “I’ll take that for you”.
We moved on several paces to see this young fellow take the form up to a plump lady and begin to scrutinise it with her. My wife returned to them and explained that it was her personal submission and she wished it to be placed in the box. My wife was told that it was not her place to tell them what to do. She then reached for her submission and removed it from the two “scrutinisers ” and placed it in the box whereupon they called her a rude “b”. (The form required name, address, age and other personal information)
So your worship, you appear to have your mafia out there hiding the reality for you while your PR department only give sunlight to the selected good news. I don’t recall such a well oiled regime since the Goebbels/Hitler alliance of Nazi Germany.
We were unable to give you our genuine feedback today, so here it is for all to see. Â Read more »
