Russell, it's the whole last minute T.I.N.A. aspect to the Auckland water front that's could leave us (NZ) with another Princess Wharf disaster.
Point taken on Frank Kitts but one park does not make a water front.
There are a few fundementals for a good city.
One is to build for the people, not for the tourists. To create a party central environment for one 2,3,4 week event is pretty poor concept to start from.
Correct me if I'm wrong but the Wellington water front was simply created for the people, not car races or rugby or the ballet. It works every day of the year.
The second thing to be weary of is any economic boom being predicted by the RWC.
Can you really build a business concept on a one-off like the RWC?
If you have a party central don't expect the rest of AKL or NZ to benefit, but do expect us to pay for it?
How about AKL addresses its major failures without looking at one game of Rugby to solve your problems?
What's the normal attrition rate for Govt MPs through an elected term & when will Stephen Franks get his seat?
Worth loves the titles, prestiege, parties and perks. To be treated like Field or some other type of unclean lepper would have destroyed him.
It's pretty clear Key was about to kick him out of the Party had he not jumped.
I kinda thought I had to say I was wrong becuase my conclusions are different to that of the jury.
Now for Americas most wanted. My Guilty secret is revealed.
Motives can be pretty simply, ego & money.
What was written on the computor after the blood lust rage of killing five members of a family? = Ego.
With eveyone dead where does the estate go? = Money.
Who could do such a thing? = Psycopath
But of course I'm wrong as I have been all along.
Looking over them again. Those lists are almost camp, so brash (not Don of course) as if to say "Wham bam I am a Man".
The words that were never said or at least never heard "I shot the prick".
On a T-shirt coming soon.
For me in that call, Davids clarity (fall out of character) of the last four numbers were telling. This under the breath utterance fits totally with my impression of events.
"Though to be fair, it looks like both Key and Goff have decided to STFU ..."
I therefore expect the an announcement by the Police.
