From Baird to Worse:

To all those with issues over the recent council amalgamations (I will declare a position that supports mergers, but not the process by which it has been done nor the disgustingly undemocratic and frankly corrupt measures involved)…
 Heres a thought. If the Government wants to suspend your right to be governed by those you have elected… and suspend your right to have a say in their replacement until some time in the future… exercise your right to refuse to fund their actions. Pay no rates until the local government they support is one that reflects the choice of its constituents. The government is beholden to money, so speak a language it understands.
