Rodney Hide answers questions on the proposed Auckland super-city. At least, that’s what the Herald promises. Sadly, he doesn’t.
As Liberty Scott points out, he gets at least one question wrong and, more importantly, he evades the absolute, fundamental core issue -- what should be the role of local government in Auckland? – and doesn’t even bother answering two simple questions that honest ACT supporters should be asking:
- Why are you not following ACT party policy, which promises to abolish the local government power of general competency, and require councils to focus on their core functions?
- If an ACT Minister of Local Government is just going to maintain the Labour/Alliance/Green policy, then what was the point?
Answers on a postcard, please.
