Otherwise they'll have another 'mining' debacle on their hands. Today's digipoll gives them the message loud and clear. This is what happens when you mooch about and let the other side set the agenda. There's been zero effort to counter the Labour lies and propaganda. For fucks sake, folks - they are NOT ASSETT SALES.
Perhaps one way to beat the Kiwi dumbarse mentality so assiduously cultivated by Labour would simply be to open up these SOEs to partial purchase by the Cullen Fund and Kiwisaver fund managers, with no further private participation permitted. Then Labour could cop the blame for preventing ordinary Kiwis from talking a personal stake in these assets.
It's a pity one is unable to see the trend from the last Digipoll. If I can find it, I'll do an update.
