Hawkes Bay good, Otago bad luck

The Government have announced some generous support of a Hawkes Bay event:

The media release says:

The Government is investing $530,000 through the Major Events Development Fund to support the 2014 and 2015 Art Deco Weekends in Hawke’s Bay, Economic Development Minister Steven Joyce announced today.

“Art Deco Weekend is unique to the region and New Zealand and provides an opportunity for visitors to immerse themselves in 1930s culture, music, history and heritage,” Mr Joyce says.

A cynical hack from the South responded:

Would that be in a National-held seat where the MP is retiring and you have hopes of retaining, by chance?

Fair point Mr Joyce.

Government don’t even need to “invest” any additional funds in Invermay. Unlike Tiwai.

All we want is for Government to stop gutting Otago.
