Assault on Transport Minister

Anyone interested in the sad state of Auckland’s transport network should be listening to Parliament this afternoon. Don Brash and Transport Spokesman Maurice Williamson will be grilling new boy on the block David Parker over Transport.

One of the biggest tell-tale signs that this Government cares little for Transport is the fact that they’ve decimated the importance of Transport in NZ by handing to a very lowly ranked, brand new Minister. The poor guy has to deal with Energy and as AG at the same time.

Of course, there is the complete theft of $600m worth of petrol taxes that go straight to the consolidated fund and are never used for their collected purpose.
