No surprise to see English fronting the Toll debate given Slippery John’s abysmal performance this week. Check out Bill in the background of this shot, are those daggers coming out his eyes?
To his credit English gave much straighter answers about Toll than we would have got from Key and left little doubt about where National really stands on privatisation. Hint: they’re all for it.
The NBR reports English as having said that a National government would consider selling off a renationalised railway company. Makes sense. They sold it before and they’d sell it again.
The more they say the more apparent it becomes – this really is the same old National Party.
