I have no idea of anything
Radio NZ continue to promote the lie that National didn’t;t know about the meth testing hysteria…
‘I’m sorry the advice we got was wrong’ – Simon Bridges
Opposition leader Simon Bridges has apologised to those affected by meth contamination evictions and clean-ups, but says he didn’t know the tests weren’t fit for purpose.
…this is bullshit and the gutless Radio NZ continues to promote this lie.
In 2016, the Drug Foundation warned HNZ and the Minister that they were incorrectly interpreting their own meth contamination policy.
The policy said houses where meth was cooked should be vacated, instead HNZ were vacating any house where meth was positively tested.
HNZ even admitted to the Drug Foundation that they were misinterpreting their own policy.
So why were they ignoring their own policy?
Because National were privatising state houses and wanted to look tough on crime.
The other reason was so that they could pass the clean up fees onto the state tenants themselves so that tenants were not only thrown out onto the street, banned from HNZ for 12months, but they also got stuck with tens of thousands in costs.
Every day that passes, the enormity of what has been perpetrated on the poorest and weakest grows.
This is an abomination.
