Editorial: Referendum on asset sales misuses system – Opinion – NZ Herald News

Russel Norman
The NZ herald has outdone itself today in its opposition to democracy and the Greens. Asset sales passed parliament by a single vote (John Banks). The majority of votes cast at the 2011 election were for parties opposed to asset sales. Polls show at least two thirds of NZers oppose asset sales. This is exactly the kind of issue that should go to a referendum, and the Greens helped to achieve that, alongside many others. For this the NZ herald attacks us; I think the issue is that they like privatisation and hence hate people having a voice opposing it.
