City, Sue Thyself


If you want to visit the sites of Peter Jackson films or moments in Split Enz history, do it fast, before New Zealand's state cannibalizes itself:

Waitakere City Council successfully prosecuted itself last week in the name of even-handed administration of regulations after it failed to get consents to move six houses.

In Waitakere District Court the council was fined $4800 and ordered to pay $780 court costs and will pay the money—aside from the court's 10 per cent share of the fines—to itself.
