Foon was a shocking appointment by Andrew Little who failed to do his homework re his background, particularly his exploitation of idiotic mainly maori women with his poker machine outfit in Gisborne’s poorest area.
ACT’s David Seymour summed the situation up accurately, albeit more diplomatically than Foon deserved when he said, “I think he’s been ineffective and way out of line through his whole tenure and sad to see him resign on a matter of (conflict) interest rather than his poor performance”.
ACT have already announced a policy to abolish the Race Relations office and the Human Rights Commission which encompassed it (located in one of my Auckland Buildings actually).
I certainly agree with ending the farcical Human Rights Commission, not the least because there’s no such thing. The only “rights” are legal rights; the others are simply wish-list fantasies.
But what of the Race Relations Commission? In Foon’s period there was only one race, namely maori. But we’re a multi-cultural society with more Asians than maori and thank God for that. If it was over to me I’d actively solicit Oriental migration. As we know they’re incredibly industrious with the hugely important added benefit of good looking females.
