Economist Gareth Morgan has come out swinging against the Government in a blog entitled Why New Zealanders Should Support the Protest against Deep Sea Oil. He posted the blog at garethsworld.com this morning as the Greenpeace sailing vessel Vega continued to block The Noble Bob Douglas from drilling off the Raglan coast.
I can exclusively reveal that Gareth Morgan's next project will be to take over Rowing New Zealand - due to his overwhelming desire to stick his oar in.
Morgan's generosity is beyond question, along with a lengthy list of hugely praiseworthy acts that have greatly benefited the unfortunate and those in need. Yet that, along with his wealth, doesn't make him the ultimate arbiter. There's plenty of stupid rich people, and plenty of lucky ones too. Just as there's plenty of Kiwis understandably reluctant to put Morgan in charge of their cat, let alone New Zealand Football's kitty.
