Whaleoil exclusive: Inside Blenheim’s “world-class” theatre

It appears Blenheim’s world-class theatre is still suffering some world-class rough edges. Looks like the council don’t mind having world-class broken glass in their world-class windows and don’t mind paying out for people’s world-class injuries when they trip over their world-class plywood steps at the entrance. People should be safe, however, as they have used world-class orange paint to provide a world-class warning.




“But Whaleoil,” you’ll say, “that’s not fair! They clearly haven’t finished yet!”

Yes, you’d think so, wouldn’t you? It turns out that the building was consented certified the day before it was opened with what is to be assumed a world-class council consent, and the reporter’s visit yesterday was after the theatre was consented and opened to the public.

Should councils be able to consent certify their own buildings? Or does that not provide a world-class conflict?

Also, if Whaleoil can get a reporter there, why can’t the Marlborough Express have a look around and report on the world-class goings on?
