The Herald reports:
First it was the mayor catching the train while being followed by his ratepayer-funded chauffeur-driven car.
Now, Len Brown’s staff have been riding in special shuttles zipping around Auckland – apparently because it’s faster than the public transport they provide to ratepayers.
Oh they are far too important to catch public transport. Public transport is for everyone else to use, to leave the roads free for the elite!
It reminds me of interviewing Green MP Sue Kedgley a few years ago. She spent most of the interview going on about the importance of public transport. I then askeed her how she was enjoying using the Snapper card, and she said she didn’t have one – it was obvious she never actually used buses herself much!Tags: Auckland Council
