My Worst Nightmare

My Worst Nightmare

It will become apparent over the next few days as news is released that the scale of corruption within and without ACC is far worse than any decent person could believe, it is so staggering that I am having difficulty coming to terms with it. The IPR&C Amendment Bill No. 3 is just the tip of the iceberg.

No doubt you are aware that the Oz profiler Steve Longford will be a keynote speaker at ACC's conference next year, well folks, he is already here under contract to SIRVA, advising ACC, among other things, how to deal with and exit long-term claimants.

You remember SIRVA, the company that ACC publicly stated it had no connection with!!!

That is just for starters, it gets much worse, the ACC Minister has been deceived, Parliament has been decieved, the people of NZ have been deceived and worst of all, our judiciary is somehow implicated and ACC/power/money are at the root of it all.

I can cope with the perverse nature of big business, businessmen, dodgy lawyers, crooked doctors; I can cope with being lied to; I can cope with conspiracies but what I can't cope with is my shattered faith in our judges, that justice will prevail. To think that registrars and judges are involved beggars belief. I feel shaken to the very core of my sole and profoundly hurt that my faith has been so misplaced.
