Covid the new rail excuse
Rae O'Connor thinks Jacinda Ardern can be trusted. How about all the promises her Government has broken, such as planting forests, building houses, reducing the number of poor children as well as repairs to our railway line?
A recent letter I wrote to Jacinda regarding our railway line was replied to by Shane Jones, who said: “KiwiRail has concluded that given the more pressing priorities in the national economic response to Covid-19, a business case for the railway line should not be progressed at this time.”
They had over two years to action this with no Covid-19. If you can't keep your promises, can you be trusted? The answer is “No”.
