Rail pledge just for votes?

Opinion Piece

It would appear that Labour has reneged on its pre-election promise to repair the railway line between Gisborne and Wairoa.

Since the railway development was funded in the Budget, Shane Jones has confirmed that Gisborne needs our rail line reopened for our future development.

I hope Labour’s promise wasn’t only a vote-catching exercise, as it would be embarassing with Jacinda Ardern’s connection to Gisborne.
