Reference Number: DCDL-0004145
Shows Prime Minister, Helen Clark and Finance Minister, Michael Cullen sitting at a conference desk. A man has arrived dragging a huge ball and chain that bear the words '$50 million Eden Park upgrade'. He explains that John Banks wants to be Mayor of Auckland but he does not want the chains that go with the office. Refers to the debate over whether Auckland rate-payers or the government should pay for the upgrade that Eden Park needs to prepare it for the 2011 Rugby World Cup and the fact that the new mayor, John Banks has overturned the decision made by the old mayor and council that Auckland would foot the bill.
