Can't we just shut up and accept the wisdom of Michael Cullen?
Treasury has obviously had another one of its 'ideological burps' in supporting the Canadian bid to buy 40% of Auckland International Airport.
So what if Treasury reported the sale would 'breach international agreements, scare foreign investors and damage the economy.'
What do those experts in Treasury know that our history professor does not about the world economy? We cannot have grubby foreigners buying our 'strategic assets' unless they are Chinese wanting to buy our Vector power company and we Kiwis must still be able to buy foreign airports like Infratil owns in Prestwick, Scotland.
We must listen to Dear Michael, who has such a fine record of economic management, that has given kiwis burgeoning wealth and prosperity, and left government finances in such a sound, fiscally prudent state, with much better public services all round :)
