    Where is there any evidence that points to the hosting agreement paid for by the public containing any intellectual property design fee. TNZ would have received a direct cash donation from the public purse separate from ACE as they have in the past and the inter company payment as Hawke points to was simply a double dip.

    Defiant will sit out in the Auckland rain for a while as there is no building.

    Why would ACE the publicly funded entity charged with running the event be paying TNZ $3 mil for designing the AC75. https://www.stuff.co.nz/sport/americas-cup/122044213/americas-cup-allegations-reserved-decision-in-team-secrets-case

    If public loot was not funding this fiasco it would not be an issue. The public expect these shenanigans from the Hunt For The Poisoned Chalice but not having to pay for the comedy. Expectations that when accountability becomes firmly hinged to credibility usually the truth becomes the victim. Storm in a tea cup yeah right too many randomly colliding events to ever be disconnected now. https://www.nzherald.co.nz/business/news/article.cfm?c_id=3&objectid=12345740

    One does not engage with the State Services Commissioner for petty reasons. http://www.legislation.govt.nz/act/public/2000/0007/latest/DLM53466.html It’s a double whammy for TNZ considering the alleged deft skills of the scammers that received the missing unrecoverable loot. No wonder the sailing team spin is let’s go as fast as we can but to where.

    The loot $135 mil from the taxpayer $113 mil plus another $20 mil from the ratepayer will ultimately result in an as built legacy for this Cup cycle that won’t amount to much more than the Wynyard Wharf break water and pontoons along with the Prada base platform and pontoons oh and some storm water upgrades to service private developers growing needs. The land beneath the Frackers and Amway bases will head into private developers hands as has most of the Viaduct and Western Reclamation. How much loot has the taxpayer and ratepayer tipped into the TNZ coffers I wouldn’t have a clue but it will be available somewhere. ACE/TNZ got $40mil as an event fee but other public welfare donations would have gone into TNZ as they have done in the past say they got another $20 mil so all up and the ratepayer recently provided another $20mil for event management some $190mil has gone into infrastructure yeah right.

    BULLSHIT. Hah the height of irony is the land the Frackers base occupies is one of the most contaminated pieces of realestate in Auckland Auckland City spent a truckload of loot in the courts attempting to get the land leaseholders Mobil to clean up their contamination and lost. The whole of the Western Reclamation where the contenders are sited is severely contaminated.

    Hah like a AA meeting. Hi I am Priscilla and I am a AC addict... Rh the public spend has now reached the pearly heights of complete excessiveness. Look to those that chase the Poisoned Chalice historically that have relied on social welfare funding one only Aotearoa. Kind of a bit fucked up in my thinking.

    This is no subsidy it’s a fucking gravy train. A one off sailing regatta digging into the public purse to the tune of $280 mil.

    Complete bullshit. No punch without Judy ring a bell. TNZ has a soft no cost deal with the events centre converted at taxpayer and rate payer cost. The income generated by events centre is lost for the Cup duration. The loss of Wynyard wharf berthage is a POAL loss but it is a TLA asset.

    That’s pretty much business as usual when you talk about TLA operations. Common sense and frugal ain’t in their dictionary.
