I see various left wing people are offering their traditional tax raising and spending solutions to solve the rebuilding of Christchurch.
Will it ever dawn on them, that in this day and age, they are a big part of the problem, not part of the solution?
Christchurch needs to be rebuild with the same pioneering spirit that lead to its existence in the first place. Not by some massive injection of bureaucratic nonsense.
Let Cantabrians rebuild the city they want. There are plenty of engineering and architectual solutions available.
The insurance money will go a long way.
As long as it isn't hijacked by control freaks.
