The Big Lie

Or, as The Rt Hon Nick Smith said to me in his letter dated 21 june 2010;

This matter has been through a full and substantive process of hearings and determinations, including hearings at the Environment Court and High Court.”

Which brings me to this quote;

“If you tell a lie big enough and keep repeating it, people will eventually come to believe it. The lie can be maintained only for such time as the State can shield the people from the political, economic and/or military consequences of the lie. It thus becomes vitally important for the State to use all of its powers to repress dissent, for the truth is the mortal enemy of the lie, and thus by extension, the truth is the greatest enemy of the State.”-Joeseph Goebbels

This of course complimented Hitler’s Big Lie. The same techniques have been used by Nick Smith, Judge Bollard, and all those at local Government level to further ease the access for development in New Zealand’s Coastal Marine Area, and further the expansion of urban development on a large scale Westward into the Coromandel.

Over coming weeks I will be dissecting the two interim decisions, and final decisions regarding the Whangamata marina consents and Variations to the Regional Coastal Plan that said; “Yes, it is ok to remove Areas of Significant Conservation Value for the development of marinas on the Coromandel.”

I will post my first dissection of interim Decision A 25 /01 later this week. From then onwards I will be reviewing the remaining and final decisions over the summer months.

This Post, The Big Lie will also grow, and be an anchor for the several pages,  each in itself to be a disection of each judicial decision that allowed this environmentally and economically unsustainable marina to proceed.

Remember, when a judge makes a decision, it is considered fact. Theoretically, this is because all evidence that is accepted by the judge is presumed truthful. With each of the interim and final decisions I will be pointing out many essential conclusions that are based on unreliable facts.

The majority of these “facts” are simply lies, others are devious “mistruths,” the only other explanation is gross incompetence on behalf those giving evidence on behalf of the applicant and respondent councils involved. I leave it up to you, the reader to draw your own conclusions.

The trust we place in our fiduciary relies on impartial and fair judgement. After witnessing firsthand The late Judge Bollard’s obvious bias toward this project, I can understand why The Rt Hon Chris Carter easily concluded within the short time allotted to him as final decision maker, that a marina in that location was an inappropriate choice. After reading the interim decision A 25 /01 during the course of an afternoon, and visiting the site myself it is easily recognisable as an inappropiate activity.

The final act of overturning Chris Carters decision By David Benson-Pope was based solely on the corrupted evidence put before Judge Bollard that was so readily accepted by him.

Hence the Big Lie.

Stay tuned!
