Ashburton Councils deal to sell millions of litres of water for overseas sale falls through. ‘A commercial decision’, says Mayor, after vigorous public protests.
The Water Works.
Ashburtons 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.
