  • Sofie Bribiesca,

    Off topic a bit - how come National constantly vote as a bloc on conscience issues lately? Are the MPs not allowed to think for themselves?

    Well we have seen when a Nat is slightly off side to Key, e.g. Maurice ended up the back and Worth started on the wrong foot with his personal billboards in Epsom so I suspect a vote of conscience is not seen as a healthy career move. Also, it may be my distrust of the National Party, but their record is proof of what they actually are, plus their method seems as always to be underhand albeit through what may be legal.

  • Kyle Matthews,

    However, I do think the main purpose of this private member's bill is to protect Auckland's assets from privatisation - unless the consent of the people via referendum has been obtained.

    I'd take that more seriously if 'Auckland' was removed and 'all city/district/regional' councils was implemented.

    Bandwagon jumping much.

    Sofie, good point. I can't quite imagine that National Party coming up with a version of "Red Alert", for example.

  • Sacha,

    In a reasonably priced car, perhaps. :)

    Very enjoyable day, but I collapsed into a slumber without coming here to report back. I've posted about the show on t'other thread, and will return here about the select committee soon. Breakfast first.
