    No, don’t tell me, lemme guess. Build a toll road for 18 km to Warkworth and the economy of Northland will be magically boosted. Based on no evidence whatsoever.

    In 1984 the Northern Motorway stopped at Sunset Rd. Since then it has been extended by 30km to Puhoi, making no difference what so ever to the economy of Northland.

    If Wayne Brown had any sense, he would ask for a billion dollars to be spent on the local roads around Northland, which would mean jobs for Northland and better roads for tourists around the region.

    Why don’t they talk about Aaron Gilmore, he has produced more stories about his night out than the sky tower.
    Then again John Key did exactly the same about the GCSB appointment. Multiple accounts, economical with the truth, blaming others for things he said.
    No wonder Key won’t do anything about him. He’s only following his leaders example.

    “Economic Development Minister Steven Joyce on kickstarting the backblocks.”

    Oh for fuck’s sake.

    Just get the fuck out of it will you please.

    When the hell will we ever find relief from this “government is responsible for economic development” syndrome?

    The Mainstream Media is just a political device used to channel left wing bullshit into our culture.
