Bill English – chant the mantra, chant the mantra

As reported in Stuff:

“it is difficult to see prices easing here. Finance Minister Bill English said in parliament last week that more oil price spikes were “possible”.

Asked why New Zealand didn’t have a strategy to reduce its vulnerability, he said: “People are pretty sensible. When they see prices going up, they start thinking about whether they want to continue with their energy-intensive lifestyles.”

And English said the government would “probably not” support an official inquiry into how New Zealand could best protect its economy from ongoing high oil prices”

The Market, the market

will sort it all out

the market the market

have ye no doubt.


(The chorus is mine, HT to ‘philly’ at for the ‘stuff’ references).
