Judging by how screwed NZ just got from this new Sky City deal, John Key’s poker face is no where as good as Lady Gagas’.
Notice that whenever Key cuts a deal, it’s always in favor of the corporation – not the people?
The new deal Key has cut for Sky City gives them a 35 year ability to sue any Government who threaten their profits! While we expect the House to always win, we don’t expect the House to win continuously for 35 years while we pay their promotion budget!
The absurdity of allowing Sky City to hold a gun to the head of any other Government for 35 years goes beyond politics. It’s a deal so outrageous it embitters even hard core National Party voters.
What really churns the stomach is that this is all a deal for a stinking filthy casino. Of all the least deserving organizations in NZ for any charity, Sky City would have to be near the top.
To cut such a one sided deal for such an eye sore of a convention centre built upon the addiction of gamblers is a low point in politics that everyone who voted for National should regret.
