From Tapu Misa’s latest column:
National thinks that… [t]hrough the magic of “competition” we’ll get a first rate penal system, and private providers will make a profit without our having to spend any more money.
Given the lack of strong evidence for this proposition, this seems to be based squarely on faith and ideology.
But didn’t Crosby Textor tell us that John Key was all about “what works”? Oops.
