Government must stop being stymied by MBIE bureaucrats

Subject; Deputy PM said quote; “New Zealand First leader Winston Peters has challenged his Cabinet colleagues for the delay over a Northport decision, criticising it as "paralysis by analysis". https://www.rnz.co.nz/news/political/405385/paralysis-by-analysis-winston-peters-assessment-of-the-delay-over-northport

CEAC supports Winston’s challenge here as our community is also experiencing the same "paralysis by analysis" from MBIE occurring in our fight to restore our east coast rail after a very long over seven year battle beginning in 2012.

Subject; “CEAC – Government must stop being stymied by MBIE bureaucrats.”

Deputy PM Winston Peters today said on RNZ; https://www.rnz.co.nz/news/political/405385/paralysis-by-analysis-winston-peters-assessment-of-the-delay-over-northport

quote; Specifically; Deputy PM said quote; “New Zealand First leader Winston Peters has challenged his Cabinet colleagues for the delay over a Northport decision, criticising it as "paralysis by analysis".

CEAC is concerned that this slow procedural policy over-reach is also affecting other projects around NZ today as we are experiencing the same "paralysis by analysis" occurring in our seven year fight to restore our east coast Gisborne/HB rail.

The Government must stop being stymied by these ghost like MBIE bureaucrats.”

CEAC is now calling for the Government to move quickly into action here in all our provinces including the East coast- Gisborne- HB. Export regions, as the lack of rail services is now impacting on our provinces economic, and environmental wellbeing by causing imminent hazardous for road travel and increasing costs of our road repairs from overuse of heavy freight trucks all through our regions.

• Government policy must stop being stalled by MBIE tactics.

• 2019 was the Government’s ‘year of delivery’.

• Government plans were stymied by MBIE stalling tactics.

This is the very same "paralysis by analysis" style we see in HB/Gisborne from MBIE not being efficiently overseeing our rail projects under way, so we want to see the MBIE investigated over the lack of efficient service to get Government projects under way in reasonable time.

• February 2019 we complained about the lack of service from MBIE here


• September 2019 we complained about MBIE again.


Now in December 2019 we again call on Government to change the culture of MBIE so that all our provinces receive a reasonable level of service.

Gordon Campbell: On The Double Standard That’s Bound To Dominate The Election

Are National really better political managers than Labour, particularly when it comes to running the economy? For many voters – and the business community in particular - their belief in National’s inherent competence is a simple act of faith. (For them, centre- left governments are just a temporary aberration by misguided voters, to be tolerated only until business-as-usual can be resumed.) Routinely for instance, the business confidence surveys continue to perpetuate the myth that National are the only prudent stewards of the economy. By and large, the business confidence surveys have been an outlet for the sustained temper tantrum felt by business leaders at the election result of 2017, rather than providing a rational assessment of the actual economic conditions.
