Next Stop Curtis-ville Central, nothing to see but it is the next stop

Well, just got off the phone with one of my mates from the Manukau City Council and it seems Curtis-ville has also been thinking about what they could spend $38,000 of public money on.
 
They're going to build a railway.
 
…but not just any railway…
 
A gold-plated bloody railway!!
 
At $70m for a 1.8km track, Curtis-ville's rail line from the main trunk to the city centre is going to cost the public of Manukau $38,000 per metre.
 
As usual, an excellent use of public money by Lord Barrington and his band of merry Councillors!
 
It is not as if there is anything in the City Centre worth going there for.

As much at home writing editorials as being the subject of them, Cam has won awards, including the Canon Media Award for his work on the Len Brown/Bevan Chuang story. When he’s not creating the news, he tends to be in it, with protagonists using the courts, media and social media to deliver financial as well as death threats.

They say that news is something that someone, somewhere, wants kept quiet. Cam Slater doesn’t do quiet and, as a result, he is a polarising, controversial but highly effective journalist who takes no prisoners.

He is fearless in his pursuit of a story.

Love him or loathe him, you can’t ignore him.
