Sharebrokers were yesterday left seething after Green Party
energy spokesman Gareth Hughes turned the debate into a
proposed reduction of power prices personal by calling those
opposing the plan greedy.
Air New Zealand is looking a good sale prospect for the
Government if it continues to get bogged down in political
debate with the Labour and Green parties over the partial
float of state-owned energy assets.
Lengthy and costly legal action, with the Government footing
much of the bill, would inevitably follow the introduction of
the Labour-Green proposal to introduce a single buyer of
electricity, Mark Warminger says.
