    I think he was 'visioning', which is a good thing in the right time and place. I'm too tired for a vision, even a for a think, and most people I know are the same. While the pollies are busy inspiring themselves, I'm planning a holiday for the tribe. A long one; by a warm beach, with good food, a pile of books and games.

    And the fishing at that beach is so good! I would be willing to teach, and have a boat.
    Anybody?

  • Hebe,

    The market speaks: "Sod off":

    http://www.stuff.co.nz/the-press/news/christchurch-earthquake-2011/city-blueprint/7734509/Project-dates-set-but-still-no-land

    Authorities want work to begin on Christchurch's new metro sports facility and convention centre by the end of next year but have yet to acquire any of the land....
    the CCDU needs to acquire 324 land parcels for the other three projects [includes green frame]...
    It has set a December deadline for completing negotiations for those land parcels, but despite sending out letters early last month advising landowners that their properties could be compulsorily acquired under the powers of the Canterbury Earthquake Recovery it has received completed questionnaires relating to only 103 of the land parcels...Some central-city landowners have said they have no intention of filling in the questionnaires because they see the process as an unfair land grab by the Government.
