Leach's Comeuppance 

Our 'first-time mayor' (Nikki Preston's description) was served a right upper-cut in today's NZH with a direct rejection of his amalgamation proposal by both John Tredigda and Hugh Vercoe.

Not much of a surprise about that - only the vehemence of the rejection. I have to say that I was extremely surprised at the tactic adopted by Glenn to push his two colleagues into a corner - never mind Buckley. He seemed to be playing 'catch-up' with Reihana, but left no way out - never a good tactic. It will be interesting to see just how he now handles it - I think it likely that he will  now attempt to rationalise Reihana's Coromandel 'go-it-alone' alternative.

All very interesting - my column on Thursday will deal with this issue. Expect a great deal more shortly.
