South Waikato News - - Conversations - H. Lodge, Toko­roa

It makes me an­gry when politi­cians try to get ku­dos from some­thing they or their party has no in­put in what so ever.

A per­fect ex­am­ple of this is the story on page 5 of the South Waikato News (April 13).

Si­mon Bridges and Blondie Up­ston at the open­ing of the 11 mil­lion dol­lar ex­pan­sion of Blue Pa­cific Min­er­als new plant in Toko­roa.

They are try­ing to take some glory from them­selves, but in re­al­ity the Na­tional Govern­ment has done noth­ing to as­sist in the nega­tions or help or in get­ting this thing off the ground.

All that work was done by the man­age­ment of the com­pany and the South Waikato District Coun­cil. The com­ing to­gether of th­ese two was the main fac­tor to the suc­cess and noth­ing to do with the Na­tional Govern­ment, for ev­ery­one knows they don’t care about the ru­ral towns.
