Serious Meeting Today at AT
It is quite amazing on who rides the trains with me to and from Britomart in any given day. Most times it is usually our resident Prude – Our Absentee Mayor on board as he goes from Homai to Britomart in the morning. Sometimes I might get Councillor George Wood on the train as he heads out checking on the rail network. But today was something more special at Britomart as I arrived at the station from my morning trip in. It is not every day you see Government MP’s floating around the station let alone a Minister of the Crown, but go figure as I ran into MP Cam Calder and said good morning to him as he boarded the train heading south. I also spied off Councillor Mike Lee (now here comes irony), Associate Minister of Transport Simon Bridges, and couple of others in Britomart as they were apparently heading to Henderson – home of Auckland Transport.
In the “spy off” our Associate Minister of Transport was giving what I could say the most evil of evil looks towards Councillor Lee as they made their way to their service bound for Henderson. I have no idea why they were heading to AT HQ today but I could fathom Simon is wanting either a nice wee chat or roasting some nuts.
I won’t speculate on the meeting at AT HQ today with a Minister present but any local authority meeting with a Minister present is usually going to be a case of gnashing teeth and nut roasting (which direct it goes depends).
We shall see what came about from a trip to Henderson to have a wee chat about things…
