NZ corruption on the rise

Until recently New Zealand was widely regarded as the least corrupt country in the world. But it has taken a tumble to number four on the just-announced Transparency International Corruption Perception Index. And the country's corruption-free score out of 100 has fallen three points from 91 to 88.

Have seen some weird shit go on while I was living the corporate dream... but I don't know whether that is corruption as much as incompetence on the part of certain govt agencies. But the government tender system in NZ is fucked.

Almost as fucked as Bill English's roles with companies involved with housing development in conjunction with the govt in Auckland.
I think it's lint.

Yeah, I worked for the govt for 7 years and saw a tonne of corruption and incompetence, but it's seriously the most petty shit imaginable, ie I'll fuck up a whole bunch of people's lives so my stats look good at the end of the year and I get a rise, rather than doing my job properly. Or a yearly bonus scheme where a total percentage of the wage budget was divided proportionately amongst all staff who achieved a certain rating, then having no one but the top management achieve that rating, securing a much larger bonus for themselves.

yeh but thats all fairly transparent, NZers routinely vote for people they know are going to do this, so its not the same as sucking a policemans dick to get off a fine.

You'll have to pm me if you have a specific question, I'm not going to talk about current or previous contracts in a public thread on corruption lol.


Yeah fair call. Nothing incriminating, and not to do with corruption as such either :tohlc:
