Letter to the Editor: A great business opportunity, courtesy of ACT




This item in the NZ Herald caught my eye today,


Act wants Resource Management Act dumped


Which led me to a few thoughts on the issue,

The Editor

ACT's new leader, Jamie Whyte, wants to dump the Resource
Management Act (RMA). He claims that,

"There are far too many powers currently being given to
various times of groups and bureaucrats around the country
to interfere with people and the use of their property."

Excellent idea! I can hardly wait to implement a few
start-up businesses;

* a full scale brothel/strip club on Paretai Drive, complete
with ten metre tall neon signage of naked women,

* a series of fifty story apartment blocks throughout Epsom,
Herne Bay, Remuera, etc, which will look cheap and nasty,
but will offer low-cost one-bedroom flats for low-income
families desperate for accomodation as the government sells
of state housing,

* a tallow factory on the North Shore,

* and a tyre-disposal plant - complete with furnace to burn
shredded runner - next to Mr Whyte's residence.

For far too long, the RMA has prevented setting up factories
and controversial businesses, in the leafy subsurbs of
middle class and affluent New  Zealand.

Mr Whyte will do away with all that.

About time, eh?

    And while we’re at it:

    * an ICBM silo in Tamaki which will cement our commitment to the War on Terror.

      Heh heh heh… nice one, DR.

      This could be a fun after-dinner game to play; How to Annoy Your Neighbours under a Post-ACT Government…

      Jamie Whyte was on Radio NZ this morning stating that even if the RMA was done away with, people could still use “nuisance laws” to try to curtail unpleasant/unwanted activities.

      Which begs two questions;

      1. Why do away with the RMA if peopole can still “hinder” activities they opposed?

      2. Who will pay high legal costs to take private prosecutions against unpleasant/unwanted activities? And will only the affluent be able to “protect their patch”, whilst lower-income areas are impacted by unpleasant/unwanted activities?

      As usual, ACT’s policies create more problems than solve.

        Maybe some Chasers-style hoaxes would be in order?
