J'ACCUSE

David Shearer and the Greens of economic sabotage in their attempt to derail the Mighty River Power share offer by their harebrained, North Korean inspired, idea to nationalise the energy market.

On one level I can understand where they are coming from.   Anything but anything to sabotage something the Government campaigned on and received an electoral mandate to carry out.

But the reality is they have announced a policy which they know they will never implement for fear of driving off foreign investment in the country.   And that shows the depth of intellectual dishonesty this bunch of no-hopers
will stoop to in their attempt to regain the Treasury Benches.

Not my words.   This from their Finance Spokesman David Parker in  a 2006 Cabinet Paper “a single buyer would likely result in higher capital and operating costs”.....The risks involved in changing arrangements could be significant. The resulting uncertainty could lead to investment proposals being put on hold. Direct implementation costs could be large.” and further ..."The single buyer would be relatively poor at sustaining pressure on operational costs.

So, the question to be asked is has Parker been rolled by the Greens and sidelined by his leader?

What I do know is that Kim Jong Un will be applauding Labours appropriation of his policy.

The Greens have said 'jump'.   Labour has said 'how high sir' and their economic credentials have disappeared in a cloud of marijuana smoke.

A snap election now would be very very interesting and should consign these Labour/Greens idiots to the scrap heap.

I don't think National really would be very keen to have a snap election right now: Latest polls.

ROFL. You never learn a thing do you Adolt? Another epic self-pwning, loser. Not as good as your last one, which took place over six months of utter hilarity, but still.
