Socialist Ratbag Should Put his own money in his dodgy Dam

Fenton "Jong-un" Wilson

Fenton “Jong-un” Wilson

Chairman Fenton “Jong-Un” Wilson of the extremely dodgy Hawkes Bay Regional Council is so wedded to his socialist dam he has written a snarky and unpleasant attack on a fellow councillor.

As chairman of the Hawke’s Bay Regional Council (HBRC) I was interested to read my fellow Councillor Peter Beaven’s Talking Point on Monday where he still seems confused about the realities of the Ruataniwha proposal.

Well Chairman “Jong-Un” Wilson, maybe he is confused but he is not as confused and deluded as a man who has promoted an extremely dodgy dam using science whose proponent admitted was not fit for purpose in a Board of Inquiry.

And he is probably not as confused as a man who has refused to listen to alternative views saying that turning the Tukituki Toxic is not permissible in law. 

Or isn’t so confused as a man who has wasted $15m of ratepayers and taxpayers money on a project that can’t even get anyone to buy its water.

And using the defence of some other bludging socialist ratbag wants a big subsidy is not a real defence Chairman “Jong-Un” Wilson.

Interestingly enough after the meeting, Federated Farmers Hawke’s Bay Provincial President Will Foley said Canterbury farmers were envious of the Ruataniwha Scheme. He said for him the crucial take home message from the meeting was “that with the all up water price we’re looking at for Ruataniwha, things still stack up for farmers.”

Of course he wants a subsidy, especially when he has been flown in to promote bludging to some farmers who aren’t socialists.

The challenge to this socialist ratbag who is bludging from the rest of us is for him to sink his own money in this dam instead of bludging off the rest of us and making us pay for his dodgy socialist dam.

I will start taking Fenton “Jong-Un” Wilson seriously when he is willing to invest himself.

    Seemed like a reasoned response to me. I guess that is the difference between an ‘engineered solution’ and a ‘sales pitch’…
