A dog of an idea

In a list of Labour’s spending excesses, Duncan Garner writes:

Michael Cullen spent twice what he had to buying back KiwiRail from Toll.

The purchase suited Labour for political reasons. They campaigned on KiwiSaver, KiwiRail and Kiwibank. But it was not good value for money – taxpayers’ money. Cullen would never have spent his own dosh on such a buy-up.

I note KiwiRail is now valued at half what Cullen paid for it . .

In her Listener column Joanne Black writes:

My elder daughter and I are much excited at the moment by what name we would give a cat . . . Naming a dog? That would be so much easier. If I had a dog I’d call it Kiwirail.

Apropos of this, like Whaleoil, I’m not impressed with Otago University’s decision to grant Cullen an honorary degree.
