CHRISTCHURCH EARTHQUAKE

Isn't Bob Parker doing it well providing both leadership and projecting a calm and measured voice of Christchurch to the world.

Bob needs to take a day off and regenerate.

He won't do his city any good as a shambling wreck.

Fatigue management is an active thing: You can't just say "Harden up" and press on. He must have a Deputy, surely?
He's doing a great job now but can only last so long without a decent break.

I agree. Bob is the ideal Mayor. Imagine if Jim Neanderton was the Mayor he'd promising everyone everything at the taxpayers' expense.

Bob has poise and dignity. I note how well he manages the media having been in their fold himself.

Anonymous @ 02 03 His deputy Ngaire Button was doing the media on Thursday anoon from memory. I don't think his wife Jo Nicholls Parker will be far from his side. She is a very good backup in spite of the misery-gutted lefties trying to denigrate her for taking an office adjacent to Bob's in the new Ngai Tahu owned civic HQ.

Parker must be in line for higher honours.

Not too soon though, I hope.

Yeah all tory politicians' wives should get tax or ratepayer funded office space. It's core right-wing philosophy. If you don't agree you're a commie and probably gay.

You must feel so much better now you anonymous tosser.
You wouldnt grasp the fact that an unpaid Mayoress might need a little bit of support to fulfill her role.
You would create opportunities such as the quadruple dipper "the troughmaster general would employ.
What is the mayoral stipend again around $160 000. The useless troughmaster general wanted to add that to his M P salary which included a "leaders" payment to lead a party of one of $100 000 for a grand total of nearly half a million.
You are obviously a classic example of the misery gutted socialist I referred to above.

What are you complaining about, her office will no longer exist, because all the greeness of that building meant it failed to withstand earthquake standards, and is now effectively useless. $100m ratepayer dollars blown by useless leftist councillors all in the name of PC broreaucracy support, rather than taking a ratepayer sensitive approach and using a building costing 1/10th the price, which any proper thinking local poly would have realised is more than enough, rather than the ego inflators who want to apt themselves on the back, grovel to some nonsense govt commission about nonsense carbon neautralitry etc

I don't doubt you are correct but not the Council building - it's owned and was built by Ngai Tahu.
