Winston Peters is Right on Interislander Bailouts
10 APRIL 2014
“Taxpayers are sick of bailing out Kiwirail and the Interislander every time one of the dud ships hits a wharf,” says Jordan Williams, Executive Director of theTaxpayers’ Union.
“Winston Peters is right, the Government is not a good manager of a shipping fleet. The Interislander should be sold to an expert shipping company. The public would probably get a better service and the taxpayer wouldn’t cop the bill when management screw up and buy a lemon.”
“The taxpayer doesn't pay a cent when something goes wrong at Bluebridge. Why do taxpayers need to own the Interislander and throw more good money after bad?”
