Didn’t take Phil Goff long to threaten rates hikes of up to 16%

Phil Goff is just like Len Brown, but with his pants up.

He has been posturing for weeks over fuel taxes or tolls or some other way to pay for his dopey train set he inherited from Len Brown.

Now his cunning plan has been revealed. He is going to blame the government for ratcheting up rates by a threatened 16%.

Auckland mayor Phil Goff will have to find a new way to fund the city’s much-needed transport projects.

Cabinet has officially ruled out introducing a regional fuel tax to cover the city’s $400 million annual transport funding shortfall.

The first thing I want to do is talk about what we just saw in there. The Security Council just finished its regular monthly meeting on Middle East issues. It’s the first meeting like that that I’ve attended, and I have to say it was a bit strange. The Security Council is supposed to discuss how to maintain international peace and security. But at our meeting on the Middle East, the discussion was not about Hizballah’s illegal build-up of rockets in Lebanon. It was not about the money and weapons Iran provides to terrorists. It was not about how we defeat ISIS. It was not about how we hold Bashar al-Assad accountable for the slaughter of hundreds and thousands of civilians. No, instead, the meeting focused on criticizing Israel, the one true democracy in the Middle East. I am new around here, but I understand that’s how the Council has operated, month after month, for decades.   Read more »
