Can the rest of New Zealand divorce Ohariu? We all have to suffer over the failure of one small electorate to vote this pest out. Enough is enough. If they won't do it let's just cast the whole electorate adrift and be rid of the lot of them.

Peter Dunne is the man but he needs to sort his stuff out. Why would you sell your assets when you know when we start to break even they will recover the loss

I was surprised that some people on the video though that the proceeds of asset sales would be used to reduce Government debt. My understanding is that it would be used to pay for infrastructure ie new schools and hospitals. The irony is that the electricity generation network is infrastructure which makes it a case of robbing Peter to pay Paul. As for Dunne - well surely this must be his last parliamentary term.
