Tim Shadbolt - FAIL

Dear old Tim Shadbolt. His attempts to get rid of his deputy mayor have failed badly.

He needs to read up on his Machiavelli, namely:

"In a coup, the first thing you do is bring out the body"


It's amazing that he has completely failed to do the numbers, or that he was unable to get a majority to commit to a removal on paper before it went to a vote. I suspect this will be the final Shadbolt term in Invercargill.

I doubt that he is treated God like in Invercargill. The place was a backwater till Tim was elected. Invercargill is now rocking, Free Fees and all. The voters love him

Sorry Doug, but I think you are remembering the Shadbolt of years past.
