The Three Waters

Richard from Hutt Central

Well, there you have it people, democracy has just left our country - whatever name you may choose to call it? For, notwithstanding the many reservations recorded, Minister Mahuta is going to force the "Three Waters" model upon us.

Despite her claims, I'll wager here and now that this is going to cost all of us, in totality, more for our three waters - period! Oh, there might be some, like those in Porirua, who'll have some relief by being subsidised by other regional ratepayers, but is that really fair and appropriate as an equitable and just reason to be forced into this option?
And please, by all means you nay-sayers, do bring on those wagers, as I'll appreciate a guaranteed, better than lotto like windfall in the years to come (assumingm of course you'll be able to pay up after meeting your new three waters bill).

So the question is, why the big urgent push for this new model, while there really seems more pressing things to deal with?

Well, the elephant in the room (while your attention is otherwise diverted) is the (undemocratic) proposed allocation of power and, thereby ultimately, wealth to a racially determined minority cohort of our population that has absolutely nothing to do with their skill, expertise or comparative financial input in these three waters matters.

Do you remember a former Prime Minister saying, "no one owns the water?" Well, both he and you need to think again if this goes down the path as has been decreed.

My points being: Is this the kind of 'democracy' you really want to embrace for our Nation; do you really want to pay more for your three waters; and, is He Puapua current Government policy or not?

The latter, certainly seems that way to me, and here was me always thinking that apartheid was something that we should avoid.

Essentially, it seems Minister Mahuta is likening us to “The Sneetches.” While it’s a shame that the moral of Dr Suess’s story seems lost on her, pushing this through come what may, is infinitely worse. We, as a ‘team of many millions’, should voice our objection and, if we are not to be heard, I can only implore you to vote accordingly.

• The fleece of sheep has been used to make human clothing since the Stone Age.
• Wool flourishes where there is rain and sunshine. These two elements sustain the grassy fields that sheep graze on. Shearers shave off the wool every year before the weather gets too hot. Wool is the ultimate renewable fibre.
• Wool from about 61 sheep extend all the way from the earth to the moon.
• Wool may be made from mixtures of hair from sheep, alpaca, llama, camel, cashmere, mohair, angora, vicuna, yak, guanaco, beaver or otter. No animals are harmed in the harvesting of wool.
• Wool is flame-resistant. It will not melt and stick to your skin like synthetic fibres. Instead, wool will usually smoulder and extinguish itself when the source of the flame has been removed. The fibre of choice for casinos and airlines.
• The fastest recorded time to shear a sheep is 39.31 seconds by Hilton Barrett of Australia.
• Wool is composed of same protein that makes up the outer protective layer of your skin.
• Have you ever wondered why your wool socks withstand foot stench longer than cotton or synthetic socks? Wool is naturally mildew and mould resistant because it is a natural moisture repellent, MEANING LESS STINK. Wool also reduces dust mite activity (they do not like wool!).

• Over its lifetime, a sheep’s fleece will absorb approximately 30Kg of carbon dioxide.
