Curiouser and curiouser in Island Bay

Letter to the editor of Cook Strait News (published 12/10/17) on the continuing saga of car parking and the cycleway in island Bay.

Dear Editor:

As a WCC councillor Paul Eagle had always seemed to support every whim in Island Bay without offering cautionary insights. As the rhetoric over car parking and the cycleway heated up last year, reaching ‘Tea Party’ (read Donald Trump) proportions, there he was nodding his head.
But it gets curiouser and curiouser in Island Bay. Now that Mayor Lester has entered the discussion with a compromise proposal, Eagle as Deputy Mayor has agreed. This has moved Island Bay Residents Association President, Vicky Greco, to extraordinary words (it seemed like “off with his head”, but I must be mistaken). So unkind to her most important supporter.
The Island Bay Residents Association appears more bizarre every time Ms Greco speaks. Did I hear a local cat say “We’re all mad here?” Again, perhaps not. Though the situation there might at times seem strange, I don’t think I’m hallucinating, and I agree with famous English writer, Lewis Carroll, when he said “tut, tut, everything’s got a moral if only you can find it”.
