Its bloody easy to spend other people's money!

When the govamint is set to blow as much money on a stadium as they spend on defense, its easy to overlook the smaller squandering.

The announcement that the government will provide $1.9 million towards a "Cuisine and Fine Wine" regional initiative for Wairarapa was dished up in Martinborough yesterday. It provides a major springboard for a project estimated to cost upwards of $7million.

$1,900,000.00 of YOUR money!

Now why do they fall over themselves to spend our money on SOME industry's while sneering at others?

Of course, they shouldn't be spending a damn thing on ANY of them- that's the job of the owners! If they REALLY want to help- cut the red tape and taxes!

If the people behind this scheme have $4.75 megabucks- let that be the budget. Even in hoplessly overpriced Martinborough, that should build one hell of a cooking schoool!

I'm with you. What about money for the health budget and waiting lists, and better salaries for their radiographers?
Stuff Auckland! Let them pay for themselves.
P.S. Isn't it Helen Clarke's electorate?
