There may be hope yet

When discussing the need for a repair, the two others involved pointed out that it would be better if we could repair instead of replacing the faulty part as these repairs came back to all of us ratepayers in the end. They would have had no problem getting the part replacement approved.

Now the chaps involved were what you would call 'ordinary working blokes' as found in the pubs and clubs everywhere in rural NZ. Not big thinkers- certainly not Libertartians or even ACToids! Chaps working outdoors with their hands for money that most city dwellers would sneer at.

But they easily and without prompting realised that council spending bites us all on the arse!

The repair worked- saving the ratepayers about $5k.
