"on the face of it they are in contravention of the rules".
Red Alert triumphs another raid with the stop signs today saying:
Great team out all round Wellington Hutt Valley and Porirua this morning as we move into next phase of the Stop Asset Sales campaign. On main roads, bus stops and stations.
Universally well received. Seems people who want to sell our SoEs don’t catch trains or drive cars in the Wellington region.
Congrats to Grant, Chippie, Charles and Kris for their work but especially to the great people who stood in some very heavy rain.
The Labour Party is digging a hole for itself here. NZTA has said that the signs are unlawful, but Phil Goff has decreed that Labour doesn't give a stuff about the law; not that that should be any surprise. But check out the photograph above; the sign carriers are standing right at the roadside in appalling weather conditions. Look how brightly the lights on the back of the truck are glowing. It's not beyond the imagination that some driver might see a red sign in the dim light, brake suddenly, and then anything might happen.
But what we really want to know is this; where were Grant, Chippie, Charles and Kris when Phil Goff, Annette King and Trevor Mallard were selling assets in the late 1980's?
