Submissions on Telecom theft

Back to matters going on in Helengrad that actually do affect us: the Select Committee considering the details of nationalising Telecom's lines. The boys at Pacific Empire give the run-down on what they told the committee last night on behalf of Libertarianz.

The short report is that they told the committee this was theft. The longer report is here at Pacific Empire. The full submission will be up on the Libz site later thir morning.

  1. I'm starting to wonder if there isn't a subtle Helengrad technique in all this. Stir so much trouble that we won't see the wood for the trees.

    It's clever in a fiendishly stupid kinda way. Exactly what I'd be expecting from them.

  2. Excellent submission, a short one, but straight to the point. It should be clear to business owners that there is no such thing as free ride. If you want a portion of the market, then step up and compete and don't crybaby to the government for legislation in order to hand them something that is not theirs.
