You can't expect this current government to step in to do anything to stop it. People are still waiting on them to start on the promises from the 2017 lies.Because apart from the SFS the other were white elephants they had to find an excuse to use:
1974 Commonwealth Games QEII
1990 Commonwealth Games - Mount Smart
2000 Olympic Games Olympic Stadium Sydney
2011 RWC - Eden Park
It took 30 years to pay off the Montreal Olympic Stadium, another white elephant.
The exception was North Harbour Stadium, which was built for no reason except the North Harbour Rugby Union needed a home. They were using the grounds of the Takapuna Rugby Club before then.
It was controversial, the ratepayers were dead agaisnt it. It is a shocking design, in a terrible place, but at least you can see the game from all round the ground.
Now I ask you, does Sir Ron Scott, Dame Cath Tizard, Paul Titchener or Helen Clark have to face the music for the debt they have loaded on ratepayers?
Seriously, the government needs to step in here and stop these fuckwits wasting ratepayers money.
What was that Bruce? Helen Clark was the Prime Minister who over ruled the Mayor John Banks on Eden Park. He didn't want a bar of it.
