RE: John Minto | Democracy only for the wealthy in Auckland

  • Around the developed world there is growing disenchantment with what passes for democracy. The drivers have been the same in each country. For at least five elections from 1984 New Zealanders voted for one set of policies and got another. Despite consistently voting for governments expected to put curbs on corporate control of our economy and keep ownership of community assets in public hands we were betrayed each time by political parties under the effective control of the very corporate sector who benefited from undemocratic decisions.
