The Press reports: “The Central Christchurch recovery is under threat as quake-weary property owners start using their insurance money to buy new buildings in Auckland and overseas.”
Hmm. If only they had been repeatedly warned about this for the past seven months.
Gerry Brownlee has blamed everyone from the council to the building owners to the insurers this year. Like Murray McCully and John Key, he doesn’t want to admit that the buck stops with him. He just wants to make excuses.
Hopefully, we’ll see a real plan from Labour today.
