Gob smacked by Herald Editorial

[Imported from Whale Oil Beef Hooked on Blogger]

Reading the Editorial int eh Herald this morning I am gob-smacked by their glowing remarks on Maurice Williamson and National’s Roading policy.

Gob-smacked, not because Maurice is a dick, because he isn’t. Nor was I gob-smacked because National’s Roading policy sucks because it doesn’t, but rather because it was the Herald editorial.

The herald is not best known for it’s support of right wing any thing to for them to impart these pearls of wisdom is simply astonishing.

“Maurice Williamson, the National Party transport spokesman, struck a blow for common sense this week when he promised to revive Auckland’s controversial eastern highway across Hobson Bay. “

“The eastern highway keeps being resurrected because of its eminent logic.”

“contrary to a much-peddled view, it is not a project reviled by most Aucklanders”

That is just what we need sensible roading policies. Policies that do not kowtow to single issue NIMBY wankers.
