I wish to speak on behalf of New Zealand First about the National Government’s economic failure.
The Government’s last-minute tweaking of Genesis sale terms hammers home what a complete flop the asset sales programme is, says New Zealand First leader Rt Hon Winston Peters.
Recently, an orange envelope should have turned up in your mailbox. It contains the papers for you to vote in the citizens-initiated referendum on asset sales. The question seeking your answer is:
New Zealand First leader Rt Hon Winston Peters says that the latest move by Mighty River Power is nothing short of playing financial roulette with the taxpayers interests.
The Government’s use of instalment receipts for the share offer of Meridian Energy is yet another admission that the asset sales are a complete failure says New Zealand First.
The worst aspect of the Budget is the Government’s plan to keep selling state assets to fund programmes that should be paid from taxation and other government income streams.

New Zealand First is accusing National of flogging off state-owned assets so it can afford to pay for remedial work created by its botched policies and decisions.
If one thing is certain in New Zealand politics today it’s that we are facing a leadership crisis.
Prime Minister John Key has spent the past four years doing dodgy backroom deals to help a select, wealthy few.
