ODT Online comments, you have to laugh. Or cry.
At least note the mordant polarity.

I entirely agree. It’s the greatest mistake ever made in Dunedin, and the magnitude of the stupidity displayed by the DCC, ORC and the present Government is truly awesome.

Discussions on the future of the proposed Otago Stadium were held behind tightly closed doors at the Dunedin City Council today. In an unusual move, Mayor Peter Chin asked that all staff except Councillors leave the room during the discussions to ensure complete confidentiality.
Channel 9 says…
In the ODT tomorrow, “a Dunedin City councillor has suggested the amount of private funding up for the Otago stadium has been boosted by ‘dunny’ contracts”.
That’s what we thought we heard.
Was that ‘Dunnie’, colloquial, similar to Dunners, meaning of Dunedin? Or ‘dunny’, slang, an earth-closet, an outdoor privy. Hold on…we thought all the facilities at the stadium would be going “indoors”.
