The Government has scrapped a proposed $785 million cycling and walking bridge in Auckland, just months after unveiling it.
The bold project had been widely criticised, even by cycling advocates, many of whom considered it an overkill solution to providing cycle and walking links across the Waitematā Harbour.
The money saved will be spent on other transport projects, leaving the future of cycling access from the North Shore to the CBD again uncertain.
Of course this stupid idea has been scrapped, it had become an art installation called ‘Winning National the election’ but the question remains how the fuck did Labour get spooked into this and will they resist it during the Hate Speech Law?
Labour were spooked into announcing this bullshit kneejerk policy because David Slack led angry white middle class cyclists from the shore across the bridge and David and his militant woke cycling chums are all mates with Labour MPs and Green MPs on Twitter and they are also friends with the MPs partners (some of whom are militant cyclists themselves) and they all attacked Labour and demanded blah blah blah.
In short the woke spooked Labour into a policy decision that was designed to calm woke rage rather than develop sound social policy, that it’s taken them this long to backtrack is embarrassing for Labour but it’s also deeply concerning that they can be bullied into dumb ideas by their woke acolytes.
This bodes very poorly for Labour in the looming hate speech legislation because the threshold of hate for your average wokester is being white with a penis. If Labour get bullied by the Woke into accepting a deplorably low threshold it will open up a purge by the woke who will immediately start dobbing in any speech they feel is hateful to the Police.
If Labour can be bullied into promising $800million for a bike bridge from just one David Slack protest, imagine how quickly Labour will fold to a full woke Twitter lynch mob on hate speech.
Hilariously the only public transport element of dumping this bike bridge was Michael Wood being thrown under a bus.
