Labour is yeah, nah on SOE buy back

Stuff reports:

leader David Cunliffe has given his strongest indication yet that his party would buy back state-owned assets if it became the Government.

He told Morning Report he “probably will” buy back the assets if Labour wins next year’s election, although stopped short of saying where the money to do so would come from.

Probably is the latest version of “Yeah, Nah”.  Doesn’t Labour has the courage of their convictions to just come out and say “We will borrow five billion dollars from overseas banks so we can forcibly purchase shares in some power companies and an airline”.
