What Is Going On In Christchurch … The Real Story

Now here’s an interesting story currently doing the rounds of the e-mailosphere.

https://www.argophilia.com/news/wp-content/uploads/2011/02/nasa.jpg

I received the below email a few days ago from a friend in the industry.
Hotel Grand Chancellor is a story that needs to be told.
Maybe a book someday!
It was finally announced on Wednesday but it is the story behind the delay that is interesting.
This story also applies to the rebuilding and repair of Christchurch which Fletcher Building are overseeing.
The tender was to RCP (project managers for council)
but was passed over to CERA once they arrived.
CERA is staffed entirely by Fletchers employees.
CERA delayed the announcement for a month to enable Fletchers to study the other tenderers info & submit a late bid.
The day it was submitted CERA awarded them the tender.
Fletchers price was 3 million higher than anyone else’s!
Fletchers have no intention of doing the demolition,
taking the risk,
or putting up the bond to cover the risk.
They are just appointing themselves as project managers to clip the ticket
& then getting the original tender winners to do the work.
How did they get away with it?
Do a companies search on Fletchers.
(No – don’t bother we’ve done it for you below).
They just got bought by the Reserve bank !
[ wha ..?  ]
RBNZ owns 275 million Fletcher shares while Hugh Fletcher now only has 5000.
Its a SOE. A Govt department !!
They bought themselves an income stream.
They direct all the profits from the recovery straight into their own pockets
instead of allowing the people of ChCh to make a bit each to help them recover.
You have to admit it is clever !!
[ clever – but evil ]
But how on earth did they keep it out of the media ?
NZ’s largest Co gets bought by Govt & it doesnt make even the tiniest news report?
Really???
Something is rotten in the state of Denmark! (or in this case Canterbury!)
Meanwhile still no start to the demo & recovery after 3 months.

The books get fiddled while ChCh burns!

Everyone involved in the (supposed) tender process firstly,

Q.

What are the ramifications ?

Immediate loss of confidence by all independent Consultants and Contractors in the tender process

in a government sanctioned role,

for fear of a continued potential for a monopoly and huge profiteering there from.

Q.

Who are the winners ?

Fletcher Building and the NZ Government,

along with the other Financial institutions

that form the majority shareholders in Fletcher Building.

Q.

Who are the losers ?

A.

The property owners, their tenants, clients and customers,

along with everyone in New Zealand who believes in a ‘level playing field’,

all the people of Christchurch,

and all the people of New Zealand that have supported,
volunteered their time

and/or donated their hard earned,

tax-paid

monies to the recovery

following the devastating events of February 22nd.

Q.

What should I do ?

A.

If you care about living in a democratic, free market and transparent economy,

please send this on to everyone in your email address book who needs to know what is happening.

As New Zealanders, exposure of this rout is our best protection.
