Banksie and Andrew Williams from North Shore have served notice that profligate spending by their councils is off the agenda.

Banksie in particular has poked pins in Helen's and Trevor's eyes by withdrawing the $50 million promised by Hubbard. Quite rightly he is saying that if a billy was on offer for the waterfront then the smaller amount for  Eden park should be no problem.

Andrew Williams has ditched the North Shore Council's support for the second airport at Whenuapai effectively killing that proposal dead.
