Example:

look at the reaction to Labour and the Greens’ eminently sensible proposal to establish a single buyer to bring some order and fairness to the chaotic and profiteering electricity market


The Government should help its own people, not TNCs.


“We found a range of deficiencies in the advice provided and steps taken leading up to [the] decision.”

"I am not sure we were right to use the argument that we should privatise to quit debt. We knew it was a poor argument but we probably felt it was the easiest to use politically".

Privatisation is about

ideology

Not

Money


Socialising the losses (Solid Energy)
