If Rio Tinto abandon the Tiwai Point smelter, EVERYONE ELSE gets cheaper power?
Shut the plant down!!!
It will save Kiwis billions....and show Rio Tinto their blackmail tactics don't work and aren't welcome.
Cheaper power will be a bigger spur to economic growth than any tax cuts....as the last two lots of tax cuts didn't do anything but make the trade deficit worse because we could pay for more imports.
But it looks like the government has a policy of maintaining inflated power prices.....so we ALL pay more.
