    And in the meantime our neighbours are going to reopen a shuttered coal fired power station at Redbank so they can mine cryptocurrencies.

    The word inside the government is that they wanted to go much, much further, but it was Winston who held them up in cabinet. Labour and the Greens wanted all existing oil and gas exploration halted as well.

    There will be oohing and ahhing from the treasury benches about the exploration ban. When Kiwi's are forced to eat cold baked beans by candle light there will be running and screaming.

    So despite all the screaming in opposition, Labour and its coalition partners (including sacked councillor Eugine Sage), have decided to follow the previous Government's time table for Canterbury regional council's return to full democracy at next year's local body election. Cindy Astern at work once more.

    "The primary barrier is the upcoming representation review, which would set the electoral boundaries for the next election. It is likely to be completed part way through next year.

    Because the existing boundaries were drawn under the current ECan Act, it is unclear how all 13 councillors would be elected until the review was completed.

    Acting ECan chairman Steve Lowndes, who supports a return to democracy, said he hoped the Government would not force elections."

    Waiting a year is nothing compared with Nationals flagrant abuse of democracy.

    I thought she might be keeping an eye on Jacindas Carer.

    Common sense though after 9 years of National , Labour need to come in and review everything as a new CEO would in a business.

    Great that we have investigative watchdog in Nicky Hagar for Daphne Project: New Zealand still a haven for some? | Radio New ... an investigative journalist par excellence. And great that Geoffrey Palmer will be looking into the hit and run raids in afghanistan. 2 un corruptible men of the highest integrity in getting to the truth.
