In a discussion ont he irony of Jim Bolger chairing Kiwi Rail, Tracy Watkins notes
If we ever doubted, meanwhile, that Bolger truly is a formidable politician, his response to questions about whether National was right to sell rail back in 1993 pretty much summed it up.
It was right to sell it at the time, Bolger suggested – but times had changed and it was now right to buy it back.
Well he’s right about the sale but wrong about the buy-back. So is he half left -what Cactus Kate calls a pink tory – or just plain wrong?
