Lyndon Hood - Crazy Yelling At Web Stream Guy, Wellington

Thursday, May 07, 2009

I have listened carefully to Rodney Hide today, talking about his answer yesterday to the (notified) question "Has he costed the Government’s super-city proposal outlined in Making Auckland Greater: The Government’s decisions on Auckland Governance; if not, why not?"

He answered "Yes".

Today Rodney was eventually, under something rather like duress from the Speaker, explained that the Auckland transition etc. has not been costed. I had gathered by that time, and Rodney subsequently clarified, that yesterday he was referring to the cost of making the proposal rather than of implimenting it.

People who deliberately break the language are not clever.
