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

I didn’t see any corresponding data on local body assets per person.
Why would they mention that? It's not like it helps their cause.
Hang on, there must be an acronym by now. How about J.C.said...?
