Aside from all the other things in this sorry story, I was interested in Tony and Bob taking their wives out for dinner on the council P card. They went to Saggio di Vino, one of Christchurch’s most expensive restaurants, and managed to clock up $289.70 between the four of them (all on us). This, on the day that they were made aware of the letter from IANZ that set off the consenting crisis and eventually cost both of them their jobs. Shouldn’t they have been, I dunno, working that night, to try and resolve the crisis at the organisation that they nominally run? Or maybe they wanted to take their wives out somewhere nice, so that when they passed on the news that they were both utterly incompetent, they at least had some nice food to soften the blow.
