More on the Stadia issue

The Stadia issue is getting farcical by the day. The Mallard and Clark play the distraction game the harder it will be to get going on whatever is decided.

This morning Rudman in the Herald has some little pearls of wisdom for us all.

[quote]It seems like only yesterday that Auckland City Mayor Dick Hubbard was happily leaping for joy – and the Herald photographer – to illustrate his support for a renovated Eden Park as the 2011 Rugby World Cup venue.

Now he's head-over-heels in favour of the Government's waterfront stadium option. Talk about snap, crackle and hop. Pour a cup of the latest good idea over him and up he pops.[/quote] 

Of course every one had forgotten about the Maori's. I myself was wondering how long it would be before they popped up with their hand out. Well today they have. Ngati Whatua have said that the waterfront site land is subject to a claim …of course they stupidly have forgotten that all of that land is reclaimed. I suppose there is a taniwha there as well.

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.
