I wish to reassure readers that there is no truth to the rumour that the Clown of Campbells Bay, Andrew Williams’ three advisers, Jim Beam, Jack Daniels and Johnny Walker helped him write the Herald column today.
But you could be forgiven for thinking this was the case. His piece was just more angry self interested drivel from a man who wouldn’t know what consultative listening was, unless you took the words consultation or listening to mean shaking fists at Youthtown representatives or calling your fellow councillor a smart arse.
The real test of Williams’ desperation is that he calls for the ARC to be truly empowered. Aside from the fact that even the ARC believe they have done their dash and should be wound up, does anyone else actually believe that giving Mike Lee and Peter Winder more power is going to solve Auckland’s problems?
Mind you the more the likes of the Clown of Campbells Bay and Brown Eye Bob carry on the stronger the argument for the Super City grows. Long may they continue their ill-tempered tirades.
