Dick wrong on Dodgy Socialist Dam

Leading member of the extremely dodgy Hawkes Bay Regional Council Alan Dick has a go at his Labour Party fellow member Meka Whaitiri, probably while Dick was still under the influence after a hard night because he got a couple of important facts wrong.

Continued carping criticism of the Ruataniwha Water Storage Scheme (RWSS) by Labour MP Meka Whaitiri is ill-informed and most unfair.

It is particularly unfair to the highly reputable members of the independent Board of Inquiry – who actually made the decisions on both the RWSS project conditions and the complementary environmental rules embodied in the new Plan Change 6 (PC6).

If the Board of Inquiry was so good why did Fish & Game and Ngati Kahungunu appeal their decisions on Plan Change 5 & 6 on Points of Law, and why did the HBRC lose on appeal? And if it was wrong why did the appeals succeed?

And after Alan Dick refused to vote for his Labour Party colleague Rick Barker for the Chair of the HBRC, was any thought in Labour given to telling Alan to bugger off?

Or is utu going to be delivered at the ballot box?
