copeland-mickey125.jpgLooks like National’s finally got some support for its policy to sell the family silver to pay for tax cuts… from Gordon Copeland.

“The partial sale of SOE shares to mum and dad Kiwi investors, combined with ongoing majority ownership and control by the state is right on the money,” said Mr Copeland.

“Does it provide some headroom for tax cuts? Yes… National are onto a public policy initiative which is sensible and economically astute. It has my wholehearted support.”

Honestly, with friends like these…
