A reader has just written in as a followup to IrishBill’s post earlier today on National’s plans to line the pockets of oil tycoons with a four land highway stretching the length of the North Island.
Our reader notes that it’s not just us who think getting policy out of the Nats is like getting blood from a stone. The Editor of NZ Autocar apparently responds to a letter to the editor:
“You are not alone in finding that requests for National’s transport policies fall on deaf ears, particularly if they’re addressed to the member for Pakuranga. This leads to suspicions that National has yet no John Key-approved transport policy” – Ed.”
Now our understanding is that it’s certainly not Key who’ll be signing things off but the general point stands.
