The staff of MP Annette King’s electorate office were disappointed to discover their place of work had been the target of vandalism at the weekend. The front window of the office was broken on Saturday night or early Sunday morning, according to Labour councillor Paul Eagle. King’s Newtown office, which opened to the public after a move

from Kilbirnie in March, is located on Riddiford Street. Cr Eagle says he heard about the incident on Twitter and Police are investigating who did it and what happened. “Our office has been warmly received in Newtown but the broken window was an unexpected welcome,” Paul says. “If people were that desperate to get in, they’re always welcome to come in from 9am till 4.30pm

Monday to Friday.” Long time staff member Robin Boldarin says the broken window has “left a sour taste in our mouths”. Cr Eagle says the window will be replaced with shatter-proof glass.  If you have any information about the broken window at Annette King’s electorate office contact local Police or phone Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.

Flyover appeal rejected The High Court last week dismissed an appeal against the decision on the controversial Basin Reserve flyover. A board of inquiry had previously rejected the $90 million plan to reduce congestion around the cricket ground, however the New Zealand Transport Agency appealed that decision at the High Court. Wellington Mayor Celia WadeBrown says she is glad that the

‘ugly’ flyover will not go ahead, however she says improvements are needed. “It’s a very clear decision,” Mayor Wade-Brown says. “The flyover was an ugly solution and I consistently voted against it. “However the Levin to Airport highway is an essential route and some work must be done. “The Basin Reserve Master Plan, the Bus Rapid Transit busi-

ness case and our Urban Cycling Network must integrate with a less intrusive roading solution.” The New Zealand Transport Agency says it is too early to speculate about what it will do next.  What do you think of the High Court’s decision? Email news@ and let us know what you think.
