Some may ask why the Lamington Files. Quite simple really,Â Witchy Wendylâ€™s attack on the South Island â€śJoy Boysâ€ťÂ (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 â€śdecent journalists, trained and skilledâ€ť.
The Heraldâ€™s 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 â€śCurrie-isingâ€ťÂ stories.Â
This is typical of the culture now embedded at the Herald.
