campbell-live-logoYou’ve got to love a good spat between a politician and a journalist.  TV3′s John Campbell has suggested the Energy and Resources Minister, Simon Bridges, is incompetent while Bridges is refusing interviews unless they are live and unedited.

John Campbell said after a story on oil exploration in New Zealand waters:

This is an issue of real public interest and a complex balancing act of pros and cons. There is much for the minister to discuss but Simon Bridges simply refused to be interviewed. Why? We think this is precisely the sort of issue a competent minister can and should front on – responding to public concern, explaining the economic benefits and offering meaningful reassurance about environmental protections.

Responding to suggestions that he didn’t want to front, Bridges spoke to his local newspaper. Continue reading »

blocknz300Takapuna and surrounding North Shore suburbs will be bracing themselves for chaos and interruptions to their daily lives as the properties from the second season of The Block NZ have been put on the market.  The open homes next weekend will no doubt bring traffic to a standstill along one of the Shore’s busiest roads.  Residents will no doubt be counting down until it’s all over and hoping that the next season of the hit TV series finds itself in a different part of the city, or country.

If not, perhaps they should treat it as a dress rehearsal for a second harbour crossing.

The houses made famous by the second series of hit TV3 show The Block NZ are on the market!

The four properties located on the corner of Lake and Eversleigh Roads in Belmont (Auckland’s North Shore) are being marketed for sale by leading residential real estate agency Bayleys, who will auction them on Wednesday 30 October.   The auction will be broadcast LIVE on TV3 as part of the series finale.
