Editorial: Dunedin’s growing contentment
OPINION It is time to consign Dunedin’s habitual discontent to history…. Link
[IF YOU MEAN IT – STOP SUPPORTING MAYOR CULL]

OPINION For a time our weather, isolation, strong links to the supposedly dour Scots and misery at our falling fortunes served as excuses….
[IF YOU MEAN IT – VOTE OUT CULL]

OPINION The University of Otago’s success in many ways saved the city yet, ironically, helped solidify its bleak reputation as students from around the country were met by old, cold and damp houses in a city down on luck and struggling to rediscover its place in the world.
[MAYOR OF DUNEDIN NO LONGER SITS ON UNIVERSITY COUNCIL]

OPINION This time the stories are all positive. […] And why wouldn’t they be?
[PSST. CULL’S COUNCIL DROWNS SOUTH DUNEDIN JUNE 2015]

OPINION The city boasts extraordinary infrastructure….
[DAMAGES TO SOUTH DUNEDIN, YEARS OF BLOCKED DRAINS TENS OF MILLIONS OF DOLLARS LATER]

OPINION No other city in the country has anything to rival Forsyth Barr Stadium….
[53,000 AGING RATEPAYERS, DESCENDENTS AND NEWCOMERS PAYING OFF DCC CONSOLIDATED DEBT FOREVER]

OPINION At the same time Auckland’s famed sunny summers have been accompanied in recent years by concerns around swarms of houseflies, jellyfish, sea lice and mosquitoes, nuisances unheard of here.
[GET FREAKING REAL, TAKEN LEAVE OF YOUR SENSES ?]

OPINION The current upsurge for Dunedin may not be a boom of mythical proportion with gold ingots springing from the soil.
[VERY NEARLY IS, MYTHICAL AND DREAR WHILE CULL WEARS CHAIN]

—Trite and tarnished, tissue of UNtruths.

CELEBRATE !!! Greater Dunedin has DIED #boombustcycle

It has not quite gone to Hell, alas.

ODT editor Barry Stewart on tonight’s 39 Dunedin News, announed Greater Dunedin has ended.

This doesn’t mean the people from that popped cycle tyre won’t stand individually.

The reign of Incompetent Spending Terror continues.

But it’s a start. More spurning please.

[HUGE PITY] Dave Cull is running for Mayor again.

Who are they ???
● Dave Cull
● Chris Staynes
● Richard Thomson
● Kate Wilson
● Mike Lord
● Jinty MacTavish

Monkeys GD

Message: “Clever” monkey Cull would have to be the one on the left smiling and staring blankly into space. At least the other monkeys know something is wrong! An apt Dunedin variation on “see no evil, hear no evil, speak no evil”. Maybe a new logo for Greater Dunedin?
