      Libz Repel Luddite attack
      ==================

      Libertarianz contender for Hamilton Mayor Tim Wikiriwhi is stunned at the
      ignorance of Green MP Mike Ward for his "whining attack on big stores moving
      into and 'destroying the character' of small town New Zealand." 'They 'lose
      their individuality,' Ward moans - "what a luddite," shoots back Wikiriwhi.

      Mr Wikiriwhi identifiesWard's "fetish for stagnation" as unnecessarily
      expensive and therefore unviable, and declares the developments Ward so
      despises to be vital for the survival of small towns. "Ward fails to
      understand that large investments are designed to attract custom to these
      areas - people patronise them because they offer them a good service, and
      this patronage gives impetus and viability for more investment, thereby
      increasing the town's economy and its job prospects for locals."

      "Only a green luddite can look you in the eye and say such investment is bad
      for local economies, "says Wikiriwhi, who offers a prediction: " If any two
      small towns within fifty kilometres of one another develop differently, I
      guarantee the town that harbours the Pak'n'Save and the Warehouse will
      prosper, while it's tree- hugging neighbor will become a haven of
      unemployment and crime, a place in which the only thing of beauty is the
      road out."

      "Any town that embraces Ward's green philosophy is doomed!" Wikiriwhi
      concludes.


      ENDS
