    Clearly, its time to make bicycles compulsory

    • Maybe, John. Bicycles are council’s distraction from having to reduce the consolidated debt the city drowns in. Cull’s bankrupting method is to have the council spend its way out of debt, he thinks. Large printing presses have been installed in council basements to print new money.
      +$47 million lined up for the whole of the cycleway network project – debt-funded with a slice from NZTA, all for a city in decline and a university that’s finally feeling the heat of competition.
