Hats off to Richard MacLean of Wellington City Council for nailing the time-wasting pointlessness of the National Party’s most shameless astroturfer:
Mr MacLean said Mr Williams’ comments say more about the Taxpayers’ Union that it does about anything else.
He said the amount of time and money spent responding to the union’s truly pathetic requests is an enormous expense.
‘One day we’ll have to sit down and cost out how much their useless approach to official information requests is costing the ratepayer’.
Doesn’t Jordan Williams have anything better to do, like try to get footage of drunk MPs for his mates or breaching women’s confidentiality?

That’s all well and good explaining the plight of employed workers. Where’s the unions’ analysis and solutions for how to deal with the plight of people who can’t participating in the labour market? Do the unions really care?
Um, do you realise the Taxpayers Union isn’t a union? Real trade unions talk about these issues a lot.
