Rodney Comes Calling

I have just fielded an excited phone call from my in-laws.  Rodney Hide has just called into to Kawarau Estate to say hi and to continue discussions on local body reform.  No doubt he read the front page of the Dominion Post today.  [As an aside this is an example of not terribly good jouranlism.  On the ferry yesterday I was phoned by a very pleasant Dominion Post journalist (female – certainly not Dave Burgess) for comment on a plan to charge Hutt, Porirua and Wairarapa residents to go to the Museum of the City on The Sea, the Cable Car Museum etc.  I said that I did not like this idea.  Instead I would prefer to see local body amalgamation or an Auckland type amenity levy over the entire region.  Read what came out in the article by Dave Burgess].

So sorry Rodney that we had returned already to Wellington. I would have loved to share our wines and show you around. But thanks for calling in and making H&B’s day!
