Referendum time

The Keep Our Assets referendum will be held as a postal vote in November - December this year. Sadly, this means the government will sell Meridian Energy to its cronies before we can tell them not to, but it will likely mean that the government will get a clear warning on other privatisations. John Key has already said he will ignore it anyway (with all the sniffy disdain for the peasantry of a British inbred), but he'll be paying an electoral price if he does. And hopefully a strong showing against privatisation will see Labour announce solid policies to reverse it and impose a loss on the thieves.
