Articles on Asset Sales and Industrial Unrest

I’ve now had a couple of columns published in D-Scene.

Most recently in an article entitled ‘workers deserve more’, I’ve discussed rising levels of frustration amongst people working and saving hard.  They’re doing all of the right things but just don’t feel like they can get ahead.  They were promised something more by the current Government, and now we’re seeing their anger boil over as they seek wages that keep pace with the rising cost of living.

Earlier, I wrote an article on asset sales.  I explain why overseas ownership is not a good idea for the Crafar farms or for our power companies.  You just can’t sell your way to a brighter future.

    Strongly do not want key assets to be sold.
    Can we lease farm land?
    But keep it in NZ hands.

    Selling off electricity generators crazy. Just raise taxes, as the new owner (s) will just raise rates. Ie the consumer always pays in the end.
