Get out of the way of RailAmerica bid
Rail retards should get out of the way of RailAmerica bid
"The Rail Freight Action Group, Alliance retards and the Green Party should should stump up their own money to buy Tranz Rail, or else stop bleating on about RailAmerica's bid for TranzRail shares," announced Libertarianz Transport Deregulation Spokesman Michael Murphy today. "And I mean THEIR own money - not mine or that of other tax victims!"
"RailAmerica obviously sees value in TranzRail that control freaks like the Greens and Alliance don't because neither of them will put up a dollar of their own money to buy the company. Similarly, the Rail Freight Action Group is simply a coalition of TranzRail customers wanting taxvictims to subsidise their transport costs, when none of those customers sees any value in putting their money where their mouths are and buying the company".
Murphy argues that "railways have long been a fetish of socialists, environmentalists, and basically all those who wish to plan other people's lives for them. They think because trains can haul a lot of people and freight at the same time, that everyone should rearrange their lives and businesses around trains. Past NZ governments poured around $2 billion of productive people's confiscated loot down the black hole of NZ Rail in the 80s in the pursuit of such social engineering, and may of their fancicul notions are still with us," he says. He highlights the notion that Auckland traffic congestion would be relieved if freight and people went by train, even though little freight and few people are within "cooee" of a railway according to the Prime Minister herself.
"The market is working on rail transport," concluded Murphy. "Just because some social engineers don't like that doesn't mean they should be listened do" he concluded.
