Is Fenton “Jong-Un” Wilson giving up on the dodgy socialist dam?

Fenton “Jong-un” Wilson

The Chairman of the extremely dodgy Hawkes Bay Regional Council looks like he may have worked out that the lumpenprolitariat are not buying into his grand vision.

In the local paper in Hawkes Bay he had the following to say about the dodgy socialist dam.

Hawke’s Bay Regional Council Chairman Fenton Wilson said getting a resolution on the Ruataniwha dam was one of his council’s top priorities, but was part of a busy programme that included a range of initiatives such as finalising a regional transport plan and a biodiversity strategy.


Not getting the dam built?

Or has Chairman Fenton “Jong-Un” Wilson worked out that his extremely dodgy council gets beaten every time they go to court, and they have blown close to $15m of taxpayers and ratepayers money on a dam that has never stacked up economically, let alone environmentally. And pissing off the local iwi was a really, really bad idea, before pissing off the Labour Party’s two Hawkes Bay MPs.

Word from sources in Hawkes Bay suggest that the Hawke’s Bay Regional Council has burnt all its goodwill, and will not be able to get buy in from dam opponents without a change at the top.

There isn’t much point in worrying about biodiversity when your own council’s plans are set to turn the Tukituki River toxic.

Fenton Wilson would be best to give it up and bugger off.
