Of Phil Goff and an asset sales referendum

Labour and the Greens have submitted their petition for a referendum on asset sales.

We don't know why they are bothering; according to Phil Goff, the 2011 General Election was going to be a referendum on asset sales; check this out:


How much time, money and effort have Labour and the Greens wasted on their petition, when all along Labour's then-leader acknowledged where the battle would REALLY be fought? And how many taxpayer dollars have been wasted in the process?

The National Party researchers are pulling their weight aren't they? You really hate the idea of people getting a say on this don't you?

What part of "come back in April" is so hard to understand Edward?

And for the record, the link came from a leftie, so you're off the mark again; not that that's a surprise...

How much tax payers money has been wasted? Not nearly as much as will be wasted in the long run once the assists get sold. You cant honestly think selling is a good idea can you?

How interesting that Mike can ask a rhetorical question he/she already knows the answer to.

Troll alert.....

Oh and Mike they are assets not assists.
Although I will assist the Government in bringing our lovely wee country back to prosperity by buying as many shares as I can.

Really Lofty? The best you can come up with is an insult about trolling and pulling me up on a spelling mistake? Leave the come-backs to KS, at least he has intelligent arguments, however much I might disagree with them.
