    There’s a name [Basil Walker] that keeps turning up in court documents and news stories:

    Trying to stop the emissions trading scheme:
    Former property developer Basil Walker is seeking an injuction (sic)
    against all Labour Party MPs preventing the scheme being passed into law before this year’s election.

    The Queenstown man taking Labour MPs to court over the emissions trading scheme is trying to fast-track the hearing.

    Making green coal:
    Basil Walker is thinking big, but starting small – the plan is to build a prototype of the world’s first zero emission coal-fired energy plant at the old freezing works site at Makarewa, near Invercargill.

    Investment failure:
    The Walkers have lost their house over the failed deal, and do not hold out any hope of seeing their money again.

    Pharmac prosecution:
    A Queenstown property developer whose wife has breast cancer is planning to take a private prosecution against Pharmac for its continued refusal to widen funding of the drug herceptin.
    Basil Walker says he will investigate laying a manslaughter charge for any patients who die because they have been denied a subsidy for the drug.

    And now this:
    Former Queenstown property developer Basil Walker is attempting to file an application in the High Court at Dunedin for a judicial review related to the Otago Regional Council’s involvement with the Otago stadium project.
