How to upset the natives 101

AN URBAN design expert says Auckland is "architecturally banal" and needs a dramatic new structure such as a new bridge across the harbour – but the city doesn't have the talent to do it without help from overseas

Yep, that should do it. Wait for the natives to come out swinging.

But wait, there is more. This gem at the bottom.
About 350,000m2 of land valued at around $1b in St Mary's Bay and Northcote Pt could be sold off after closure of bridge

I suspect that monetary return from the sale will not be realised as other natives put their hands out for 'their' reclaimed, but now highly valued mudflats to be returned.
