The Hypocrisy of the AUSA

The Auckland University Students Association has been at the forefront of action against asset sales. They have endorsed action and press releases against them, including a march and protest against asset sales at the recent National party Conference.

They are of course A grade hypocrites.

While they oppose asset sales by the government they aare hocking off their own assets, and not a partial or mixed ownership model either.

The electorate offices of Botany MP, Jami-lee Ross, are owned by the AUSA Property Trust Number Two and they are currently being advertised for sale. I noticed this because I drive past his office every day…twice and there is now a big sign out the front.

It seems that the AUSA likes to march and protest but is meanwhile doing exactly what the government is doing behind the scenes. I have no problem with them re-adjusting their portfolio, or even selling the assets, but I do have a problem with their rank hypocrisy in opposing asset sales outright while they are selling assets themselves.
