Dawn Chorus: Councils set to dump Wellington Light Rail
Little says NZ to look at joining AUKUS-lite; Nash sacked; Jobs grow in Feb; Gross pay up 8.8% in a year; Public service pay unfrozen; Quote, podcast, tweet thread, profundity and cartoon of the day
TL;DR: Stuart Nash was sacked for telling donors what happened in Cabinet. Wellington’s City and Regional Councils are going cold on light rail plans. Wayne Brown is under fire for not going to Wellington to lobby on Three Waters. Public service pay has been unfrozen and there was more jobs and wages growth overall in February.
