As one of my readers pointed out, the only thing the opposition has to do is to say that any privatised assets will be Nationalised as soon as they come to power to stop the asset sales as no one in their right mind will buy something for a lot of money if it is confiscated again in a few years.
So you have to ask yourself why don’t they? It would mean being elected, keeping our assets and the end of the National government as they can not implement their looting and will loose even more support.
And what’s with Russel saying that mining is to be expected and not something he is really opposed to. He is the leader of the Greens for fuck’s sake.
If the above confuses you, you are still believing that we are living in a real Democracy! You believe that it is your will as the majority who does not want to sell our assets counts for something. I doesn’t.
