Treasury Predictions, John Whitehead, fawlty tea-leaves

Ha ha. We project out 40 years, quote in billions (which makes the eyes glaze over) and use that as a panic-lever?

Pull the other one, John Whitehead (and Bill English). The world you knew has gone already, but you’re thinking of it still being even similar in 2050?

This is spin – setting folk up the same way Nick Smith did with ACC – panic and duck-shove. Threaten twice what you do, and people feel half as …….ed. Good tactic.

Let me guess, private ownership will be the magic key. Don’t make me weep. Again.

One light at the end of the roseate curve in the sky – there is now the societal ability to crack down on gangs, confiscate property, and do it all without a warrant. Where was that facility when our public assets were flogged off to folk who made quick profits ?  Can we please make it retroactive?
