    Cleaned up contaminated building sites and strengthened wharfs much?

    Ask Grant Dalton. He’s the one I’m paraphrasing. Team New Zealand isn’t solely funded by the Government.

    He’s fired the sub-contracting company because they’ve been responsible for sharing confidential information. The transfer of money to a Hungarian bank account is one of the things they’ve released. GD’s not shying away from the fact that it was a fuck up, but notes that one of the informants was in a position where they should have avoided the scam in the first place.

    Nor was it a loan. It never happened.

    If nothing else I admire your irony. Creating a nonsensical statement like that, in response to an accusation of stupidity is the sort of entertainment we can only get here.

    A broadcaster wouldn’t be a contractor, would they?

    The $3m hasn’t gone anywhere.

    Worth a listen (except for the Mike Hosking bits), for anyone who wants to unpack the headlines into explanations. https://www.nzherald.co.nz/nz/news/article.cfm?c_id=1&objectid=12344690 Noting: One of the informants was in charge of paying the invoice. The $3M quoted is not the same amount as the invoice. They've got some of the money back. The money wasn't public money.

    If they knew that it wouldn't be a very good scam, would it, you dumb fuck.

    Did they have mates in an America’s Cup team?

    I can’t remember which one, but one of them is English.
