As if to confirm that New Zealand is heading back rapidly to its Dark Ages, the re-nationalisation of NZ Rail is followed hard on the heels by a traditional Cook Strait ferry strike. News here.
Ah, New Zealand's antediluvian past, where every holiday New Zealanders huddled round the Cook Strait ferry terminii awaiting the cooks and stewards to grant them the boon of holiday travel. Those weren't the days.
Not good to see we're heading back there, powered mostly by fear of the unknown future.
