    Yes for sure thanks to Winston we will see the KIWI RAIL BOARD SACKED as they are pure evil now as they have banned us from discussion with them now.

    So how can any state owned enterprise ban us owners of the rail company from discussion with them????
    They do need to be shown the bloody door as the first action Winston does apply before he takes Kiwirail back.

      Statutory Corporations can do pretty much as they wish.

      NACT speaks with their corporate elite behind closed doors but maintains they have no influence. They are all members of the same club. Fuck the public who own them.

      Rail competes with road and oil , is also competing with the investor state, so has to take a back seat. NACT will see that it remains that way.

      I find putting any money on Winston is like backing personalities instead of policy and principle. He has done some good never the less.

      I presume Winston can spell principle but is a poor actor when acting on long term public interest.

      Winston First.
