Lhaws puts on his usual prima donna act over the H which is set to leave Whanganui an uninhabitable, post-apocalyptic wasteland:
“I have a constitutional responsibility to fight this decision until there is no fight left in my body. [The Geographic Board] has deliberately put Wanganui in a position where we can only resist, and then prevail.”
Your constitutional duty, you attention-seeking little glamour queen, is devote your energies to making the city you are mayor of a better place to live. While you’re arguing with little girls, banning jackets, and coming over all wannabe Churchillian about an H, your city actually has real problems: redundancies, rising unemployment, poverty, crime, drugs, the denial of adult education.
That’s where your constitutional duty lies. Not in using a minor spelling disagreement as an excuse to spend all your time flouncing around in the media.
All you’re doing is turning Whanganui into a laughing-stock.
