Banksie makes mistake but at least he tells us who he ate with

John Banks has made a bit of an oops after it was revealed that his staff claimed for $438.80 in entertainment expenses. In stark contrast to Looney Len Brown though John Banks has told us who he was having lunch and coffee with.

Greedy  Little Piggies

The $438.80 claim covers four occasions – entertaining the United States Ambassador at Euro Restaurant on the waterfront for $215.50, catching up with arts patron James Wallace at Frasers cafe in Mt Eden ($23.80), discussing the Peter Blake memorial with businessman John Street at the Stamford Plaza Hotel ($44) and having lunch with Britomart developer Peter Cooper at the Northern Club ($155.50).

The onus is now on Mr Brown to come clean on who he dined with on the council card at Volare at a cost of $810.00. Come clean Looney Len.
