In addition to being held accountable for ignoring Maori Water Rights this government also needs to be held accountable for the economic impacts that privatisation of power companies will have on power prices.
Privatisation changes the focus of our power companies away from the provision of reasonably priced power to showing good profits for shareholders at our expense.
So in order to offset a $16 billion tax cut for the top 10% of income earners we are being asked to pay more for our power as well as to allow that top 10% to rip us off further in high dividend yielding power shares. Great stuff. Time to put an end to asset sales and to remove the unaffordable tax cuts for the rich.
