Took me a bit to work that out but got in another for the chopper.
Akl Westpac Chopper was the first ever DC I set up in the work bank account. Many years ago now but still today each month we flick them a little more. Started at only a fiddy a month, easy and totally painless, now up to a few hundy.

Totally agree there fella.
The waste is massive yet these people are hanging for a fraction of that coin, wrong wrong wrong!

That's the average ambo's wet dream.
Maybe the whole pack of trough scoffers in Auckland Council will be marooned after a free travel junket goes awry and they urgently require to be rescued by those choppers and voila they will finally see the light and grant some bulk funding.

I think the truth of the matter is, and this is deeply cynical, not what I agree with, but what I believe to be true, is that the Rescue Helicopter is not centrally funded because it is such a mind numbingly good thing that its services can be funded by fundraising and corporate sponsorship and the like.
In short, the pollies wont fund it, cause it wont actually go away if they don't, the community will chip in and sort it out.
On the other hand, if the Council organised a wipe around to fund $200k worth of litigation against a defamation case, how many people would be rocking up to man a sausage sizzle, make donations and sign up for corporate sponsorship?
So the pollies save your cash up for really important things that they need, via the compulsory land tax revenue (your rates).
