It will come as no surprise that Mayor Dave Cull The Ineffectual will definitely settle out of court.
An “incompetence” shared is an incompetence doubled. This will cost him the 2013 election.
God forbid DCC on behalf of the Dunedin community would want the ORFU and related entities’ books opened for full independent forensic audit. This is the missed opportunity that going to court – not settling – presents. However, depending on who independently commissioned the audits, DCC itself would show up badly in the dealings – not enough diligence, too much corruption, brotherly love, mass incompetence, you name it.
Wait for the DCC media release. Watch the council’s new five million dollar Spooks (communications) department cream it.
