Mayoral knives

Tim Shadbolt and Gary McCormick have been rightly praised for coming to the rescue at a car crash on Saturday. They could hear screams coming from inside the car but couldn’t smash the windshield’s safety glass to get in, so Shadbolt used his hunting knife to cut a hole big enough for McCormick to climb through and relese the seatbelt that was strangling the occupant.

Three cheers for Tim and Gary, but questions arise. Why was Shadbolt carrying a hunting knife? Is this standard mayoral issue? Are Bob Harvey, John Banks and Michael Laws, to name only the three maddest mayors, similarly equipped? I think we should be told.

Haven't you forgotten that Willams chap over on the North Shore? Mad as a meat axe.
