“Congratulations are due to Helen Clark today for getting rid of the Auckland Issues portfolio,” Libertarianz leader Bernard Darnton said today.
“I have no doubt that Aucklanders are perfectly capable of getting on with their own lives without interference from Wellington, and it’s great to see the Prime Minister recognise that.”
Ever willing to help, Darnton also offered advice on other portfolios that could be abandoned: “With the recognition that Aucklanders can look after themselves we should also let others off the leash too. We could get rid of the portfolios for the Community and Voluntary Sector, Consumer Affairs, Disability Issues, Ethnic Affairs, Maori Affairs, Pacific Island Affairs, Rural Affairs, Veterans’ Affairs, Women’s Affairs, and Youth Affairs. I look forward to all of these groups being allowed to breath the fresh air of freedom that’s been granted to Auckland.”
