Regarding the Canterbury Earthquake Recovery Authority (CERA), what can Christchurch East expect for infrastructure rebuild rate and quality, when private company profits are the parallel criteria? – Carrot and stick for rebuilding on time 25 Apr 2011 + Mind the cracks: Rebuild deal sealed Infrastructure rebuild agreement 5 Mar 2011.

How is it that government can so readily be subverted to private capital accumulation? History shows that to be the state’s primary purpose, since the age of kings. But it does not act alone – it acts for an entire class of ‘official’ thieves.

For one example of the corrupting influence of media barons behind modern ‘legal’ misappropriation, there is Fairfax Press editor Andrew Holden.

Precisely, Holden papered over public opprobrium for a regional councillor who took up a commercial interest for Central Plains Water scheme but never gave up any voting right around related plans – Holden calling this “a proven commitment to water issues” in Editorial: The axe falls.


Andrew Holden, Ed. The Press

Whereas when the public promptly voted that compromised councillor out, and the corporates’ new government responded by replacing the incoming council with rubber-stamp commissioners instead, with replicate cowardice Aussie Holden endorsed underhand free shots at the public’s replacement choice, within ECan pair considering challenge.

If you call this honest journalism, Andrew Holden and staff, which planet are you on?
