I see that the Wellington lines network has been sold. Given the network has been in in the hands of foreign investors before I can’t see a sustainable argument for blocking the sale as the Auckland Airport bid was blocked. I do think the government should have bought it back. Electricity is too important to be left to a competitive model and in my opinion the government should be taking every opportunity to return the electricity sector to public ownership and then move to re-regulate it to work cooperatively. Buy it back.
