  • Ross Mason,

    Anyone read the fascinating article in today's SST by Greg Ninness about the source of the data that has been bandied about re the "efficiency" of Port Auckland???

    And the front page headline about the local body per person debt??

    Conspiracy warning ahead:

    Is there - or is there starting - a concerted effort by someone to plant the seed for the next round of local body shinnanigans.

    These happenings seem a wee bit too cute.

    Playing the trump card.

    PS I don't know where this comes from but it is a laugh.

  • DexterX,

    An article that quotes the article in today's SST by Greg Ninness - the link to the SST is not anywhere I can find:

  • DeepRed,

    Mayor Len is rightly offering to mediate... but do I get the feeling the horse has already bolted from the barn? Short of the ITF/ILWU/MUA lassoing the horse, that is.

  • Rich of Observationz,

    the front page headline about the local body per person debt

    I didn't see any corresponding data on local body assets per person. The gross debt might look alarming as a headline figure, but it will usually be offset by the assets (utilities and so on) that it was used to build.

    Why would they mention that? It's not like it helps their cause.
