What role did Leggett play?

Kapi-Mana News - - OPINION -

al­ready determined that the re­duced seat­ing is enough.

Surely, it’s bet­ter to have more seat­ing than less to re­tain peo­ple’s per­sonal space while wait­ing/ rest­ing, all the more so for the el­derly.

And we do not need to be squashed to­gether like rats in a cage go­ing against good mod­ern de­sign prin­ci­ples. The coun­cil’s con­sul­tants would know that.

so­cial ser­vices around New Zealand.

All are wait­ing for the ‘‘bet­ter model’’ to ar­rive.

What gives John Key?

I feel gut­ted for the work­ers who are be­ing left high and dry by the pro­posed clo­sure of Trash Palace.

From my read­ing of Kapi-Mana News, this is a re­sult of de­ci­sions made by the Cap­i­tal & Coast Dis­trict Health Board, prob­a­bly at the prod­ding of the Gov­ern­ment.

It is a dis­grace how the ser­vices for the strug­gling mem­bers of our so­ci­ety are con­stantly be­ing eroded, and this is yet an­other ex­am­ple.

I did note that Porirua mayor Nick Leggett ex­pressed dis­ap­point­ment over what had hap­pened to Trash Palace.

I won­der how hard he fought to re­tain it when he was wear­ing his other hat, as a board mem­ber of the dis­trict health board.

He cer­tainly sounded dis­ap­pointed about the clo­sure, but who can say what went on be­hind closed doors around that board ta­ble?
