NON-NEGIATABLE BOTTOM LINE #74

I see the NBR is running a story that whichever Party agrees to Winston First's non-negotiable bottom line to transfer the container terminal from the Ports of Auckland to Northport (Whangarei) will form the next government.

Leaving aside the fact that such a move defies any rational economic analysis one is entitled to ask if this non-negotiable bottom line is as non-negotiable as the referendum of the Maori seats; a referendum on the repeal of the anti-smacking legislation and the reopening of the Napier-Gisborne railway line .... and, and, and ....

Just askin.

The container port (Ports of Auckland) belongs to Auckland City - how exactly does Winston think central government is going to tell an Auckland City owned business to relocate?

Winston is God, don't you know?

AF, it was a half serious question - given Winston's Muldoonist tendency towards socialism I wouldn't put it past him to propose a formal government expropriation of Auckland's assets.

You are right to never put anything past the lying ratbag.
