Sculpture a sad tribute to wasted money

How fitting – the Hemo Gorge sculpture.

All over the world there are monuments to failure. The Germans kept the horror camps to remind the world of the Holocaust., monuments in London to remind us of the great fire in 1666. There are monuments in almost every state to remind people of the drought, the Indian wars, the Civil war, the Boer War in Africa, the Changi Jail, the monuments to victory and the many more to defeat, to mistakes made and paid for in the history of the world.

Now Rotorua has one to mark what is in my view the waste of ratepayers and taxpayers money.
