The Politicisation of CERA and the planning of new Christchurch

This, strangely, is a crossback-cross-post originally published at Rebuilding Christchurch by Barnaby Bennett, chief egg of the Freerange Press and editor of the magnificent book “Christchurch: The Transitional City Part IV“. This is the first of an epic four-and-a-half-part analysis of the political machinations in Christchurch, and how they are influencing the rebuild. -Byron, Ed.

 

No government was ever going to be able to seamlessly respond to a crazy series of events like the earthquakes that hit Christchurch between September 2010 and the end of 2011.  It was an insanely complex and difficult event and the tangled nature of all the little parts mean the development of new ideas and plans and the construction of these is no easy task. Yet, this shouldn’t mean a pass card for our representatives. In this article I’ll argue, and explain, why I think the removal of the public from most of the rebuild process is a critical mistake both politically for the government and for the citizens of Christchurch.Read more

I followed you. What? I’m, I’m sorry, Mr. McFly, I mean, I was just starting on the second coat. Ronald Reagon. Wait a minute, wait a minute. 1:15 in the morning?

I don’t worry. this is all wrong. I don’t know what it is but when I kiss you, it’s like kissing my brother. I guess that doesn’t make any sense, does it? That’s true, Marty, I think you should spend the night. I think you’re our responsibility. yes, Joey just loves being in his playpen. he cries whenever we take him out so we just leave him in there all the time. Well Marty, I hope you like meatloaf. The storm. Doc.

She’s just trying to keep you respectable. God dammit, I’m late. Biff, stop it. Biff, you’re breaking his arm. Biff, stop. Oh, I sure like her, Marty, she is such a sweet girl. Isn’t tonight the night of the big date? Okay, real mature guys. Okay, Biff, will you pick up my books?

Uh, coast guard. That’s a great idea. I’d love to park. Hi. Yeah well, I saw it on a rerun. Ronald Reagon, the actor? Then who’s vice president, Jerry Lewis? I suppose Jane Wymann is the first lady.

I’ll get it back to you, alright? Hey Biff, check out this guy’s life preserver, dork thinks he’s gonna drown. Thanks a lot, kid. Doc? Am I to understand you’re still hanging around with Doctor Emmett Brown, McFly? Tardy slip for you, Miss Parker. And one for you McFly I believe that makes four in a row. Now let me give you a nickle’s worth of advice, young man. This so called Doctor Brown is dangerous, he’s a real nuttcase. You hang around with him you’re gonna end up in big trouble. Oh Mom, there’s nothing wrong with calling a boy.

He laid out Biff in one punch. I never knew he had it in him. He never stood up to Biff in his life. Marty, that’s completely out of the question, you must not leave this house. you must not see anybody or talk to anybody. Anything you do could have serious reprocautions on future events. Do you understand? Pretty Mediocre photographic fakery, they cut off your brother’s hair. Ahh. Ahh. Watch this. Not me, the car, the car. My calculations are correct, when this baby hits eighty-eight miles per hour, your gonna see some serious shit. Watch this, watch this. Ha, what did I tell you, eighty-eight miles per hour. The temporal displacement occurred at exactly 1:20 a.m. and zero seconds.

Okay, that’s enough. Now stop the microphone. I’m sorry fellas. I’m afraid you’re just too darn loud. Next, please. Where’s the next group, please. See, there’s Biff out there waxing it right now. Now, Biff, I wanna make sure that we get two coats of wax this time, not just one. Get your meat hooks off of me. I hope so. Oh, if Paul calls me tell him I’m working at the boutique late tonight.

Blackbird singing in the dead of night. Take these broken wings and learn to fly. All your life you were only waiting for this moment to arise.
