Rugby World Cup: Government steps up and does something
The Rugby World Cup opening ceremony was a complete farse. The Auckland Council has refused to do anything. The Rugby World Cup organisers have refused to do anything. Now, in order to save the image of New Zealand, the Government has said they will step up and do something.
Details are sketchy, with an official announcement due tomorrow. The Government could go as far as to effectively impose martial law in the area of Auckland’s waterfront. Whether they will or not, I’m not sure. But what I can say is something needed to be done.
McCully has said that it will involve the Government taking charge of a larger area of the waterfront. How far this will go is uncertain, but I would hope it extends right through to the Viaduct too.
Congratulations, Murray McCully. You’ve done something I agree with. And I think that’s a first for you.
