The obscenity of building a new 1500 bed prison on top of the 900 bed private prison at Wiri is further proof that National are expanding their corporate prison empire.
This is being sold to the sleepy hobbits of muddle Nu Zilind as proof that the Government is cracking down on crime – what a load of bullshit!
It is proof of a societal failure on a massive scale while implementing a corrupt private prison model that is broken.
The Daily Blog has already exposed that fight clubs are happening in Wiri, this after SERCO lied about fight clubs at Auckland and tried to take Corrections to the High Court to stop the report emerging in public.
You would have known this if the mainstream media in NZ hadn’t gone into a feeding frenzy over an All Black having sex in a toilet.
While the economy is being propped up by huge borrowing and welfare cuts for tax cuts, the Government want to blow a billion on new prisons.
A suicide rate that is out of control, a housing crisis that is in meltdown, growing inequality and a prison population blowing out over 10 000.
We can build private prisons, but we can’t build houses for the homeless. We can’t build affordable housing but we can build tax havens. We can give away billions in tax cuts but we can’t fund suicide prevent programs properly.
This is Key’s NZ and we should be ashamed. If you’re not angry yet, you’re part of the problem.
