That was brilliant!

I just loved the way he kept saying that the over borrowed developers needed to go bust. No compromise, no equivocating, no politicking, just go bust and let everything start again at a more normal level.

Bet he frightened the s... out of the building federation spokesman.

We have been singing this guy's praises over on the NI board.

Don't think I've heard anyone in the media put all it so well.

Starts off a bit slow with stuff about legal fees but once Newton gets into his stride about developers, banks and government, he is excellent. Hope to hear lots more from him in the future.
