  • Hard News: SpinCity, in reply to Russell Brown,

    The CCA decision could have been appealed by the DIA or whatever government department was overseeing the Casino Control Act under ministerial instruction or sanction - maybe it was the Ministry of Commerce as casinos were first pursued and introduced in NZ by a Labour administration as an economic driver.

    Again show us the hansard cabinet papers where this decision affected the legislation. I have no idea if it exists or not. If it does fair dues.

  • Hard News: SpinCity,

    Russell, presumably there is hansard or policy manifesto references to the Casino Control Authority approval of the existing convention centre and being the rationale for the Gambling Act?

    The absence of references would seem to suggest bias and/or spin.
