Budding young Tauranga Bureaucrats

I see a couple of impressionable young budding Tauranga bureaucrats spent some time with a couple of our local bureaucrats Tony Ryall and Simon Bridges recently, and I can't help but shake my head and groan as I imagine what nonesense their heads are being filled with.

Whatever you do please do not take the opportunity to be yet another interfering busybody,  imposing your own personal choices and judgement upon others, telling them what to do with their lives, money and property, based on what you think is right or best for them or the community.

By all means take the opportunity to learn what not to do - like say you are against the anti-smaking bill, and then vote "for" it, or say there will be tax cuts and then put up GST etc etc.

By all means take the opportunity to learn about property rights, and the rights of the individual, and the importance of having principles (not that either Mr Bridges or Mr Ryall would know anything about them) upon which to base your political decisions so that you may make consistent, and uncompromised decisions as opposed to personal choices and preferences. 

To look on the bright side, things may have been worse - they could have spent time with Nick Smith - the man with a tongue so forked he could hug a tree with it!
