Faced with defeat, Mallard changes the rules

Mallard doesn't get it. Aucklanders don't want the NIHBY (Not in Helen's Back Yard) Stadium.

How much do we not want it.

TVNZ reckons it is a 61% No response from over 29,000 votes

The Herald has a 78% No response from 8732 emails

C&R Now reports a 71% response in favour of Eden Park 

So faced with political oblivion Mallard changes the rules …typical socialist wanker, resorts to cheating to get his own way. Of course he tried the spinning first by saying that the race was neck and neck. 

As Rudman says in the Herald today

[quote]Auckland is fast becoming Wellington's Iraq. If we're not stoning Sports Minister Trevor Mallard for his waterfront stadium plan, we're up in arms about Government plans to make us pay tolls to finance highways that the rest of the country gets for free.[/quote]

Ain't that the truth….Mr Mallard hasn't got it through his thick head that Aucklanders will not be told what we are going to do. If he decides in his socialist wisdom to force a waterfront stadium on us it will be to Labour's peril come the next election and Hubbard's peril next year.

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.
