Im with Contact, cheapest power weve had for years. Check your prices Kathy, you might be pleasantly surprised.
I supported the Asset sales but not now, too many people going to get free shares and to much cost for advisors etc.
And no longer trust the sneaky John Key. My biggest worry is the constitution he is going to sneak through without a referendum. Looking at his Constitution panel scares the hell out of me.

All the people of New Zealand do have the power to stop this sale from happening. Mercury may currently provide the cheapest electricity pricing, however do you think that will remain the same once it is privatised? no, they will follow contacts example and institute heavy price rises. Shareholders in Mercury will be able to take the government to court in order to force better returns. If people in this country are serious about saving their assets then leaving Mercury energy for another provider is your best bet. No one will want to buy a floundering power company thats running at a loss. The people of New Zealand can over rule John Key and the National Party on this matter. Take a stand, switch Mercury energy off.
