This morning's Herald has a story about Otahuhu residents being upset with an Auckland apartment salesman's claim that cheap inner city apartments will bring "low-lives" into the inner city:
"They'll be on the dole," he said. "They'll be people who should live in Otahuhu and never be allowed out of Otahuhu."
Nice to see Brazilian attitudes to the poor growing up among Auckland's elite. Meanwhile, the Herald also has a report of an explosion at a P-lab in one of Auckland's most exclusive streets, which included this lovely bit:
One [resident] asked the Herald to report that the explosion happened at the cheap end of the street.
I guess he was worried people would think they were "low lives"...
