City councillors Douglas and Murrell in response to my letter re leaky homes (KMN, February 21) state that I am incorrect.
I am in good company in that the High Court (numerous times nationally), the Appeal Court and the Supreme Court are, in their view, also incorrect.
The fact that the recent judgement against the Porirua City Council for $390,000 reinforces my view that the council liability is not for the 20 per cent they quote, unless of course the councillors can advise the number of settlements they have made that have been for only 20 per cent as they state.
It almost seems that these councillors believe they are the legal equivalent of the Privy Council in London.
In addition, and most tellingly, they do not even attempt to answer any of the four questions contained in my letter.
I doubt that any citizen of Porirua City would give any credence to any of
