Wellington bashing c/o John Banks

John Banks fires broadside at Wellington

John Banks' bashing is not what you expect from a public servant. Name calling is an act of the uneducated and uncultured.

It is good that Wellington mayor, Kerry Prendergast did not stoop down to Banks' level.

John Banks' is wrong. Local government leaders in every country must be unified for the common good of all their residents and the entire nation. Making enemies would not work and would only polarize.

Auckland is a beautiful and big city but it is not the entire New Zealand. New Zealand is also made of Wellington, Kaitaia, Palmerston North, Christchurch, Tauranga, Invercargill, Gore, Porirua and other towns and cities.
