Hands off our fireworks, Akld bludgers

LETTER

Well, 7000 Auckland screamers say the country can’t have Guy Fawke’s sales of fireworks any more, as the 1.5 million of them bludging off the rest of the country for their roads etc want this. What is so wrong with this picture?

Well, I’m sick and tired of giving my tax money to these fools! Should I start a petition to stop wasting our money? Or am I alone in my thinking?

I'm not sure what you want. I would hate to see those Aucklanders tell us how to enjoy our Guy Fawkes, just because a few outweigh the opinions of the many. But are we supposed to pay their road tax? As far as I know our gas is 3-5 cents cheaper than it is for those Jaffas. They pay their tax, we have a great fireworks display every first of January. Where is the connection?

How much do beneficiaries spend on fireworks and grog on November 5th, when the money is supposed to be used for living with? Organised free fireworks displays should be a thing of the future, not idiots letting off fireworks for weeks after Nov 5th thinking it's their right!
