Audrey Young at the NZ herald reports:
Labour leader David Shearer won’t rule out supporting Winston Peters’ policy of buying back Mighty River Power shares at cost if they form the next Government. …
Mr Shearer said, “We won’t rule it out but we won’t rule it in either.” Labour would not be able to make any commitment on it before an election.
Incredible. They are saying we might confiscate your private property but we’re not going to tell you whether we will or not before the election.
No Right Turn is outraged, saying it is “spineless chickenshit” behaviour.Tags: Asset Sales, David Shearer, Labour
