Sorry folks RNZ only know how to create windows media files.

In my submission and in the interview I make the case that we are being sold a pig in a poke – just being told everything will be ok.  I was asking for a clear exit route, a clause that allows us to secede from the city if we don’t feel it delivers on its promises.
