Wellington employment specialists, Cullen Law, hosted one of its regular breakfasts for the city’s leading business figures at the Wellesley Club yesterday (Wednesday) with The Hon Chris Finlayson QC as guest speaker.
The hapless Celia Wade-Brown – possibly unaware of his formidable reputation as a litigator, wit and wasp – bemoaned Wellington City Councillors’ poor relationships with the Government.
Chris Finlayson verbally lacerated CWB, highlighting the shortcomings of many of Wellington’s Flat Earth councillors; identifying, in particular, Iona Pannett (Green) and Andy Foster (Independent, but considered erratically green-tinged under his suit and tie).
Celia was publicly humiliated. It’s now the No 1 subject at the Wellington Club gym; the source of a great deal of mirth. Can’t Wellington find someone to stand against Celia? Before the city becomes another Canberra?
Consensus is that “CWB made a complete tit of herself”; and she knew it.
