Well, well, well.
What do we have here sleepy hobbits?
That giant meth contamination hysteria, the one ex cops who ran ‘testing’ companies and the land agents who had deals with those ‘testing companies’ screamed at us was true.
The one Paula Bennett and the mainstream media cried was true.
The one that cost $100million, left hundreds of State Houses empty, and saw hundreds of state tenants kicked out of state houses.
THAT meth contamination hysteria turns out to be absolute bullshit you sleepy hobbits…
The meth house is a myth: There’s ‘no risk’ from drug smoking residue, Govt report finds
A bombshell report shows there is no risk to humans from third hand exposure to houses where methamphetamine has been consumed.
This means tens of thousands of homes have been needlessly tested and cleaned at the cost of millions, with some demolished and left empty.
The study by the Prime Minister’s Chief Science Advisor Peter Gluckman found that New Zealand had made a “leap in logic” setting standards, and set a standard used overseas to clean “clan labs” was now being used to test and clean houses where meth had only been smoked.
…tell me how it feels sleepy hobbits?
How does it feel to be played again?
By the ex-cops, by greedy land agents with skin in the contamination game, by the mainstream media, by Paula fucking Bennett.
How does it feel?
Just like the role the media had in empowering Cameron Slater’s dirty politics, this will just quietly fade won’t it? No Newspaper Editor will step forward and acknowledge they got it wrong, made people spend $100million for no reason, forced state tenants into homelessness and perfectly fine state houses left empty.
Just like the mass surveillance lies, the dirty politics lies, and the get tough on crime rhetoric, the fears and petty ignorances of muddle Nu Zilind has been allowed to dictate counter productive policy.
How on earth, in this day and age can we still be manipulated by moral panics?
You are all so easily led. Why are you allowed to vote?
Remember, anyone in a State House where meth was tested was not only kicked out of the State House, they were banned from any State House for 12 months – how many lives did National fuck up and make homeless because of this moral panic?
Don’t get angry at me for pointing out you were played like chumps over meth contamination hysteria, get violently furious with those who chumped you!
