Re: National Plan to Reduce Shareholding in 4 SOEs - Pros &

the point about it being private debt was covered in the media. But it was on Saturday so probably not that many people saw it? And red switch...that is actually a really good point about Tiwai. I'd like to think that Treasury would have a really thorough look into the effects of the asset sales on ...

Yeah and in the eyes of that specific audience he was! This honestly is the most ridiculous thing to get upset about. Yous would make terrible politicians just saying.

Joe public is actually pretty against this. The stuff poll has 65% against it, and stuff is usually pretty conservative so that's saying something. National will still win though because Goff is a personality-less bore and a lot of people don't tend to let things like policy dictate who they vote fo...

Re: john key appeals to female voters in election year

So...your issue with this is that he's talking to Tony Veitch at all? As opposed to the subject matter? To be fair...i'd be more scathing of those original 2008 comments than the fact he's gone back on them. I think it's a fairly damaging message to send, that once you've done something like that yo...

Keeping in mind also that NZOG are only 29% shareholders in the company that actually owns the mine. Not to mention that none of us actually know much of anything about the company, the mine, or the reasons for the splosions.
