Ratepayer raped - was it good for you?

In these enlightened times where Liarbour's 'what me worry' message is obviously getting through, a council has flown a lump of rock first class halfway around the world.

Bugger the carbon footprint, fuel miles, the NZ airline subsidised the flight at great cost to the taxpayer for the culturally sensitive rock. Yes, that is all it still is - 35kg of rock.

Un-bloody believable in this day of skyrocketing costs. I wonder how many pieces of culturally sensitive Kiwi junk adorn the sister cities around the world? All delivered by junkets and paid for with your taxes and rates.

Was it good for you?
