Sandcastles in the Air

Christchurch local body politician Gail Sheriff insists a ratepayer-funded trip to see a sandcastle competition in the United States was worth every cent.

mmmmm.

Hasn't this individual heard of the recession? Even in the good times this just aint acceptable.

Typical that the Mayor Bob (give me another ratepayer funded latte) Parker gave this the go ahead.

Who do these self important bureaucrats think they are, important?

Ratepayers don't think so and there has been a backlash.

Now I'm for other sorts of activities on the beach, especially when it involves as little body covering as possible but spending $4000 of ratepayer money on a holiday in San Diego and using the excuse that you are investigating sandcastle building because you think it maybe good for your city is stretching the realms of credibility tighter than Pamela Anderson's red swimsuit.

Nice work if you can get it.
