Remember the triumphant pre-election 2005 announcement of the RNZAF Skyhawk sale?
Was it Filk Off who made all the noise?
'They'll never fly again.' said the Squadron Leader. 'They're just scrap now.'
How mush have these damned things cost to keep in storage while the most inept salesmen in the land tried to hock them off?
Labour is still trying to blame the Yanks for their non-sale. Of course nobody could expect Labour to know that the US government doesn't permit private companies to buy military aircraft.
Now these expensive pieces of junk are being stored out in the open because they have insufficient value to justify the expense of indoor storage.
Come the next election, New Zealand voters will be able to apply the same treatment to Labour. Turf them out to be stored in the open air. They no longer have sufficient value to justify feeding and clothing the pricks.
Still cheaper than trains!
