Dipshit of the week: Bob Harvey

In this first of a series we take a look at those individuals whose achievements(or lack thereof) might score themselves a first place in the Darwin awards.

In this first instalment we look at that useless smelly pile of ratepayer sucking, evil lefty dung-hole, Mayor of Westieland, one Bob Harvey.

Apart from his whole career at his local council sucking on the ratepayer tit and spending rate money like a drunken gay sailor on "P" Bobby has lately been making a name for himself by spending millions on a failed attempt at an airport that nobody wanted, on the North Shore of Auckland, swimming naked for a dare and cooking bacon while drying salami on his teenie tiny wiener (I made the last part up).

The reason why this black hole gets the dip shit of the week award is that he thinks his achievements rate him another handsome pay rise this year:

"I consider myself grossly underpaid for the work I do 24 hours, seven days a week," he says.

"MPs get a lifetime pension when they retire, yet when I finish I won’t get a thing, even though I’ve done 16 years in local government. It’s grossly unfair."

The fact that the world is in a financial crises seems to have passed him by but it is probably no surprise to most because he would have to get his head out of his arse to see what was going on in the real world.

Furthermore this evil, greedy little lefty doesn't think his massive growing staff at the council should limit their salaries this year like we are all having to.

Its "grossly unfair"?

Yes it is, Waitakere ratepayers should get their money back.

Congratulations Bob, you are the inaugural Political Animal Dip shit of the week.
