Where the fuck is the accountability to spend $100m on a contamination problem that didn’t exist, that left 240 state houses needlessly empty & threw maybe 1000 beneficiaries onto the streets?
How the fuck does that happen and no one is responsible?
The amount of money we just blew on pointlessly decontaminating state houses for meth would have feed breakfast and lunch to every poor child in NZ at school for a year.
Remember the context here, National were busy trying to privatise state housing, so this constant media attention on dirty filthy druggie bennies contaminating good solid taxpayer built state houses was a PR coup from heaven for National.
Scapegoating state tenants as druggies while National were privatizing state housing is fucking sick.
There were 240 empty state houses because of this! How many tenants were kicked onto the street? The enormity of this scandal is terrifying and there are accusations now that children were taken off State House tenants using these fake tests! What will be most depressing however is it will be forgotten by the end of week because this impacted poor brown people – the fake meth contamination scandal would need to appear on bloody Dancing With The Stars for the mainstream media to continue covering it.
If you as a state tenant had your house tested for meth, not only were you kicked out, you were banned from any State House for 12months – no wonder our homelessness rates blew out under National – this was a mad hysteria scam fed by the media for ex cop contamination companies
The most disturbing part of this meth scam is that so many in the media fell for it! We are a developed scientific country – we got duped into believing mythical monsters existed and the poorest suffered by getting thrown onto the street!
How the hell can a first world scientific developed country get conned into believing a monster hunt so ex cop decontamination companies could make a killing using meth hysteria which gave plenty of media camouflage to push through state house privatisation agenda by a hard right Government?
I think I just answered my own question.
We should be deeply ashamed of what happened here, we should be deeply ashamed at how muddle Nu Zilind were played, we should be deeply ashamed of how worthless our media were and we should be deeply ashamed of how our poorest and most vulnerable were treated by this.
Surely we need to find where the state tenants were kicked out to, we need to immediately house them, we need to immediately seek compensation for them and any state tenant who had their kids taken from them using these fake tests must immediately have their children handed back!!!
For fucks sake people – this is an abomination!
How easy was it for us to become fascist towards the weakest members of our society?
Jesus, I hate us sometimes.
