A FREE waterfront Auckland stadium. A 50,000-seat covered stadium to be built by the Auckland Waterfront Consortium in return for the right to build 2500 dwellings and commercial buildings nearby, and the right to re-develop the land where Eden Park stands now. We ask economist Sam Richardson - what's the catch? The phrase first coined by British PM Harold Wilson "a week is a long time in politics" couldn't be more apt for the New Zealand National Party this week. Political journalist Richard Harman sums up the accusations of "corruption", "electoral fraud", the betrayal, the texts, the tape, insults to Chinese and Indians, harassment of women, and other dastardly goings on.
