    Strange that Ray Wallace selectively changes his tune on rates rises depending on who’s driving them. The increases in Lower Hutt rates bills over the last 5 years are ridiculous. It always amazes me how people are ready to complain about central government taxation policy, but largely ignore the always-above-inflation rises that our local government pushes through. I agree with Wallace on the general principle here, that GWRC are changing the mix when the flood protection scheme for the Hutt River has already advanced so far, but it’s still crass hypocrisy to be pointing the finger when he’s responsible for excessive rates rises.
