Auckland needs an overseas panel of experts to boost Auckland’s economy. It is feared that Auckland’s economy is fuelled only by the growth of the city. I found this on teletex. When New Zealanders stop thinking for themselves you get second best. Like Botany Downs Shopping Centre. The spread out design for this came from an American company who designed a suitable shopping centre for the weather conditions in sunny California. Go figure what it is doing the other side of East Tamaki.
If there is one reason this cities economy will fail it is because we are breeding a generation of state dependant meanderthals. Straight from their mothers apron strings and the play station to the State Tit.
Having been an employer I have seen the standard of our youth deteriorate rapidly over the last few years. The younger they were the worse it got. They would walk in for an interview and within 30 seconds of observing the way a young man walked and talked I could tell if he had been raised by his mother alone. Just to confirm it I would throw something casual into the conversation like — following in your parents footsteps, what do they do. These young men we called 13 week wonders, that was about the limit of their capacity to hold down a job.
They did not value their job; they did not value a job well done, their tools, their equipment, or the opportunity to learn. Quite frankly — I wouldn’t be bothered being an employer in New Zealand again. And yes the reason I was at the sharp end of this syndrome was because I was in one of New Zealand’s hard yard male dominated industries. The place where women are best kept away from, and you are right I wouldn’t have and didn’t employ one either except in the office.
I spotted a comment the other day labelling this generation the bubble wrap generation; cotton wool must be out of vogue. Not surprising though when you have got a city of mothers who would stop our children having fun with their fathers, because they are just that selfish and vindictive.
The problem we should be addressing is not the Auckland economy it is the cabinet table. There isn’t any one there to say tell the funny girls they screwed up and that they should shut up and piss off, so we can rebuild our country with out having to listen to their harping about why life isn’t the way they think it should be.
