Letting people know about me being ripped off last week.Went to my Doctor in Waitara to get something to break Phlegm (Mucus) down. Got sent next door to the Unichem Chemist and the chemist grabbed a bottle of Robitussin off the shelf. $25, thanks very much. Ran out before the week was up. Got my wife to buy me another bottle, today from the Supermarket, South Rd, New Plymouth. $15. How can a Chemist justify that sort of increase in price. Waitara people, you are being Ripped off as well
I was one of those invisible ratepayers who made submissions to the NPDC about our new $30M airport.
It was neither needed nor warranted in my opinion, our Mayor on the other hand opined that " it would keep the tills ringing" . So hows that going Neil?
While we were assured that it would not ever be a burden on the ratepayer, no sir not ever, it was entirely predictable that it would be given the councils, any councils, history of dabbling in commerce. It was just a matter of when and how!
And now they want another $20 million or so. Outrageous.
Its time the council was called to account and some resignations tendered . I'll hold my breath.
