    Plunket has branded Eleanor Catton a traitorous ‘hua’

    Maybe Plunket meant to tell Catton to 'puss off and go fork yourself'.

    videotaped in late 67 or early 68 in TVNZ's old Waring Taylor Street studios in Wellington.

    And not long after, they opened Avalon Studios.

    public service run into the ground and still their chums the captains of enterprise need public handouts to make their way in the world. Crowding out, my arse.

    When is austerity not austerity? When it's neo-feudalism.

    It's the Hosking-talk that got me:)

    More from Hosking:

    "So what if Rome catches fire? My house is built far away enough that it's not an issue for me."

    Brewer contriving to find himself in a minority of one today over the convention centre is hilarious though.

    I wonder if Cr Brewer has shares in SkyCity? It's always fun sorting out those who'll stick to their principles, and those who have a price.

    "SkyCity boss Nigel Morrison’s confirmed this week that the company wants taxpayers to bridge any shortfall in the centre’s construction costs."

    Could the real reason be that Nigel Morrison has had a shareholder revolt, and is too embarrassed to admit it?

    Herald editorial: 'SkyCity must meet its side of bargain'.

    And in a good sign, the vast majority of comments (last I checked at least) are against SkyCity going cap in hand.

    So after bitching about and needlessly politicising any number of considered spending decisions, Brewer is happy to kick in a council subsidy on this?

    He really wants a safe National seat, doesn’t he?

    The story so far: Cr Brewer will probably step down from AKL politics to focus on his spin consultancy. Still, that doesn't preclude him from being given the preferential Epsom treatment.

    It’s a slog, but we’ve found Elevator quite proactive.

    From what I've checked, Elevator is exclusive to Auckland. Emerge is probably the closest Wellington equivalent.

    TV3 was completely MIA on this story tonight, so maybe it really does make sense to dump all this 2 days before Christmas.

    Or not. Still, it wasn't even headline news.
