"Auckland Ports To move to Thames" - Yeah right!

Those who may have been alarmed at the revelation in today's NZH that Thames was the second preference on the short-list of possible future sites for the Port of Auckland (after Manukau) can relax.

I went into the actual Study Group release made on 8 April from which this gem was gleaned, only to find that the suggestion of giant container cranes on our doorstep was far from the mark - the actual words used (confusingly) were "Firth of Thames Area (within the Auckland region)"

Rather different to the location as implied in the totally erroneous NZH report, but that is fully in keeping with the recent standards of journalism to be expected from that alleged 'Paper of Record.'

So relax everyone, and enjoy the holiday - all is well, and Leach has not sold us down the river on this occasion without telling us!
