I was told you were sick by your staff, when I phoned about my URGENT email of 5 July regarding unsafe rental properties in Carterton, that was being ignored – is that how you get out of facing me? Like a naughty child would?
I was extremely offended and distressed when I saw you come out of that office with that horrendous elitist neo-liberal bigot Bob Francis. I know what that man has done to advance rich and persecute poor people in this region – which is illegal. Also the monuments he built to himself in sport and recreation, while ignoring sewage infrastructure in Masterton. Plus the disabled and poorer members of this region he caused to unnecessarily suffer and die while Chair of the DHB – especially those he drove to suicide. Along with driving out disabled and poor locals due to lack of govt housing, which is/was illegal. My song Human Sewage was inspired by him and the original version has his name in it. Here the link, you should show it to him, I did send him a copy by obviously he thinks as little of me as you do. http://jrmurphypoet.com/2016/02/human-sewage/
You keep telling people you listen to me and are concerned about those things I say on the street etc – which others are concerned with as well – and yet you continue to meet with the same elitist cruel neo-liberal bigots who have destroyed our kiwi culture.
A council is not a place for failed ‘old money’ business people with dysfunctional cruel elitist personalities to get together, come up with things they want and pat each other on the back, using public money! That is an Oligarchy not a democracy, not Rule of Law, not constitutional and not allowed under the Commonwealth Charter either!
The first law of New Zealand (Imperial Laws Application Act 1988) related to how governments (THAT IS YOU) treat ‘the people’ is Westminister Statute the 1st – common right be done to all rich as poor. Which translated means you must listen and meet with poor people as well as rich. Next is Magna Carta which relates to not destroying people, and everybody having access to right and justice.
You and I both know local government encouraging in new residents KNOWING YOU ARE DRIVING DISABLED AND POOR LOCALS FROM THEIR HOMES and into dangerous situations or out of the region altogether IS NOT RIGHT! You know this causes rape, domestic/flatmate violence, suicide, self-harm and child abuse – by ignoring your responsibilities as ‘the government’ you are worse than any person who does these things – much worse, because you have CHOICES, many of those people do not. Many of those people who hurt those around them have serious mental health issues that are not being addressed, I know this having been subjected to six different mentally ill people as flatmates last year. ACC and government leaving me in that situation as a disabled person caused me significant harm, which is illegal and I know you and your staff enjoyed so much – because of what you have just done and the bigotry and HATE I have been subjected to by several of them gossiping in ‘the community’.
I still want that meeting about landlords legal responsibilities if people are harmed when maintenance is left not done. I know it is a crime and people can be imprisoned for it, those people who are landlords need to know that – I don’t want to be the one to tell them, or I will never have anywhere to live! Although even what I have done now will probably insure that 🙁. I can also confirm I am distraught and crying about what you did today. Or perhaps you Oligarchs are well aware the police are never going to prosecute a cruel irresponsible landlord, no matter what sort of peasant tenant he harms or kills.
The government propaganda about I AM HOPE – GUMBOOT FRIDAY is really a sick joke for you people isn’t it John, a sick cruel evil joke. You and the government and your council profit from and enjoy persecuting human sewage like myself, local victims of crime that beg for the ACC/health care and welfare WE ARE ENTITLED TO UNDER NZ LAW – STILL ENTITLED TO JUST NOT RECEIVING because our government are corrupt. I truly hope you are exposed for what you have done to hurt the poor in this community for the years you have been mayor, I truly hope everything is taken from you for the suffering and crimes you have committed. Just like a drug dealer would have all of their assets taken, that is what criminals like you deserve, from my perspective in the darklands, those selling drugs had no choice as there was no decent work, you on the other hand had CHOICES and you chose to advance the rich and persecute the poor for profit.
Thanks for making me feel completely worthless and my safety or those of other renters being no concern whatsoever for you as a leader of this community. Thanks for making me cry today, I was trying to have a day where I didn’t. They don’t happen often after what Sarah did to me, which still breaks my heart. There is a great saying, “Tears of the poor will catch up with you one day.” I truly hope this applies to you and your family, watching your family suffer is something rich people love subjecting poor people to, isn’t it John.
