Don’t believe too much of what the McFarry PR and marketing machine tells us these days.
CST offering Mr Sprey first ‘instalment’ at the stadium opening is hilarious.
Money talks. Whose money.
(Hard sell to Mr Sprey includes the Monopoly line: ‘Ratepayers are the Bank’?)
Will Mr Sprey bring something acceptable to town – how much for him to make some calls. Are we paying him already.
He suddenly sees Dunedin in lights with half-dead grass underneath.
Never mind, has to look good on opening night – we can’t vouch for the rest.
Where is the rumoured Britney in all this (not in your palm…). Ah well – sorry, not interested.
Forked out for the best flat screen, the flatmate is chef, unparalleled – great deal from Green Man, family’s vineyard gives pick of the cellar. The cousin dropped off venison. Sister-in-law bringing the salmon. All set. What? Head to the stadium tonight? And miss having friends round before we head to Central tomorrow. Nah. Staying in. Glenorchy’s gonna be great. Winter Games coming up too. Got plans.
Hell, even WDC aims to contribute less to the stadium – all being well (or sick, depends on who’s counting) that’s another $2M for the McFarry fundraising scheme.
Whatever millions it could cost (CST/DCC passes everything to Ratepayers) if the June 1 construction deadline is missed.
D Scene did us a favour today…cracks starting to show. Yeah, things not going brilliantly for CST/DCC right now.
Is it cheaper for Ratepayers and Residents to “stop the stadium” ie cause the termination of contract, or to build the stadium and operate it for so little profit (read ongoing losses) it will sink us.
