The unbelievably insane proposed $800 million ‘cycle bridge’ attached to the Auckland harbour bridge, WILL NOT HAPPEN. Why? Because the understandable uproar across the country has been such, no government could survive such craziness and all governments principal motivation is survival.
This decision was so mind-blowing mad, that despite never having had a conspiracy theory mentality, I can’t help wondering if it was deliberate, for two reasons.
First as a distraction ploy for the total fiasco of the Covid vaccine programme, and the further vague details being issued at the time the ludicrous $800m cycle bridge was announced. As we know, far from being first in the queue for vaccines as then Health Minister Hipkins promised to the nation eight months ago, it transpired that we weren’t even in it.
Our vaccination achievement ranking status is 99th in the world and last in the OECD nations. I believe this is the biggest government cock-up in the country’s history, and by whom?
The bloody Health Department whose show pony Head banana spent the last year giving utterly unnecessary daily updates on our insignificant virus figures, instead of carrying out the most critical task, namely securing vaccinations. In most other countries he’d have been sacked and in some such as North Korea, Saudi Arabia and the like, publicly executed.
The second reason I suspect a conspiracy behind the $800 million cycle-bridge announcement is because no government is that dumb. It amounted to a plainly ludicrous straw man for the government to earn public points by subsequently cancelling it.
