Why shouldn’t council sell off assets?

There is plenty of sympathy for Christchurch but it only goes so far.

By wanting to hold on to their assets rather than mortgage them to fund the rebuild they are saying the rest of us should pay for their misfortune.

We have paid enough, and we don?t mind paying up to a certain point, but this just makes Christchurch look as if they are on the bludge.
