Some may ask why the Lamington Files. Quite simple really,Â Witchy Wendylâs attack on the South Island âJoy BoysâÂ (Southernersâ name for pink lamingtons) is the tip of the iceberg in terms of failure of the NZ Herald to live up to its own standards of beingÂ âdecent journalists, trained and skilledâ.
The Heraldâs editor Shayne Currie must be very close to Witchy Wendyl to allow, each week, aÂ
columnÂ rant to be published containing mistakes and half-truths. But then again he is known for allowing his repeaters to write whatÂ Janet Wilson called âCurrie-isingâÂ stories.Â
This is typical of the culture now embedded at the Herald.
