Mafia Reports On Its Hit Men

So the Parliamentary Inquiry's Report on the IRD - 'the Trirds' - is out. "The Mafia has reported on its hit men. This report raises a number of wider questions, and should seal Graham Holland's fate." says Libertarianz Leader Lindsay Perigo

"You won't get a change of culture from the same senior management who created the current one. So of course, Graham Holland must go," he says. "And not with a golden handshake, either. But let us remember that Holland was only "doing his job." Sir Bubonic Birch, who singled him out for special praise in his valedictory address last week, gave Graham his police state powers (which, incidentally, the Inquiry has recommended remain), & gave Graham the tacit go-ahead to turn the IRD into a Gestapo."

"It is said flippantly, but in reality Sir Bubonic is one of the most evil people in the land. There is much more of Ian Mutton's blood on HIS hands than on Graham Holland's. Sir Bubonic should at the very least be stripped of the $600,000 lump sum you & I are paying him on his retirement, & the annual pension you & I are paying him thereafter."

"All the other politicians who live off the money the Trirds take forcibly from us should stop spouting this nonsense about "customers" and acknowledge that they live off the proceeds of theft & that the victims of the theft are just that . victims . not "customers." The Inquiry's much-vaunted "Taxpayers' Charter" should trumpet the fact that by the principles of natural justice, these victims have no "obligations" at all, other than those they have voluntarily taken on, & that compulsory taxation is an immoral imposition which should be phased out."

"Above all, we should look to ourselves at this sombre moment. Graham is merely a symptom of Bill. Bill is merely a symptom of the philosophy of collectivism, which most of YOU still embrace as ardently as he does. The twentieth century has been the Century of Collectivism . the most blood-soaked in man's very blood-soaked history."

"Will we never learn?"
