Ashburton Councils deal to sell millions of litres of water for overseas sale falls through. ‘A commercial decision’, says the Mayor, after vigorous public protests.
The Water Works.
Ashburton’s going through a dry spell…
Faith in the aquifers and the Council fell.
Its a sad day for Mayor Angus McKay,
Sad enough to bring a tear to his eye.
Those liquid assets he hoped to sell
Will lay undisturbed in a deep dark well.
He’s feelin’ blue and Pure Blues the reason why
His boring plans have wound up high and dry.
