In 2017, Labour gained power both unexpectedly and unprepared. No surprise, then, that this "victory" resulted in a bout of irrational exuberance on their part when responding to media enquiries about their as yet unformed plans and ambtions.

Indeed, at such times grownups know that skepticism is all; so when such pie-in-the-sky fanatasies turn to dust they're neither surprised nor disappointed, which is why, like me, they so don't get exercised by it.

Criticism of incompetent governments is a right and to *real* grown-ups a duty.

Labour did prepare a manifesto for the 2017 election. They were
seriously challenging National at the polls. How do we, the voters,
determine the difference between "pie-in-the-sky" and seriously
held-to-accountable policies?

The Greens will always be Labour's poodle party unless they get
serious as a single-issue party (and willing to work with either major
party). NZF can propose whatever they wish, safe in the knowledge
that almost no-one will vote for them again.

I doubt it.
"The Government has conceded its flagship transport policy has been put on
ice, again.

"It had been obvious for months the project, a light rail line from
Britomart in downtown Auckland to the airport, was troubled, with coalition
partners NZ First openly saying it wouldn't progress this Parliamentary
term.

"After almost three years, light rail finally made it to the Cabinet table
on Monday. Transport Minister Phil Twyford should have left the Cabinet room
closer to a decision on who would build the enormous infrastructure project.

"Instead, it was axed, which the Government was forced to admit on
Wednesday, saying it would be kicked back to officials after nearly three
years of deliberation."

Let the Anzacs learn for themselves what we Yanks discovered LONG ago.
In the age of the automobile, "Light rail" and "high-speed rail" are little
more than boondoggles and White elephants that never pay for themselves, let
alone turn a profit.

Recently the Spanish have come to that conclusion, but they won't say it out
loud:


It's said that insanity is defined by doing the same thing over and over and
expecting a different outcome. The Land of Fruits and Nuts continues to flog
the dead horse of high-speed rail, despite sinking $100 billion into an
economic black hole:


The US is not the EU and will NEVER be, GET IT?: http://rlu.ru/2I0F8

Also, ever notice that the loonie Left and eco-kooks
DEMAND light rail and high-speed rail, then turn around
and howl that it's "destroying the environment"?
