Benny when the power goes out you cannot use your pellet burners. At least a log burner can be used to cook on in an emergency while it provides warmth.

This is clearly it.
“Feb. 17 (BusinessDesk) – The Labour Party is pledging up to $20 million, if elected, to support the region’s timber processing sector, possibly by helping fund a prefabricated housing plant.
Such an initiative would dovetail with Labour’s KiwiBuild policy to fund construction of 100,000 affordable homes over a decade.
The announcement, by party leader Andrew Little at Gisborne’s Prime Sawmill today, is the second in a series of targeted regional development investment announcements that Labour plans to roll out in election year for a total of $200 million in commitments, which would only be fully spent if matched dollar-for-dollar by local government or private sector funds.
A fortnight ago, the party announced the first in this series: a $10 million package for Dunedin’s technology sector.”
Well it sounds good,as does the IT in Dunners.
But this is election year when politicians promise all manner of butterflies & unicorns,then do other things altogether if elected.#1603071gayebelleBlockedMember since: May 28, 2008

“”This is clearly it.””
Don’t know too much about that as they have to ‘Un-mothball’ the ‘Right-of-Way’ (railway) North of Napier and there’s a few bridges involved in that including a Viaduct. Then there’s serious talk of mothballing the ‘Right-of-Way’ north of Woodville too (eastern end of the Manawatu gorge).
We’re not talking peanuts for the section North of Napier to Gisborne. As a operator of truck and trailers in the Northern Hawkes Bay the roads North leave a lot to be desired. If the roads need to be upgraded as will be the case then the only people happy chappie’s will be the local residents in and around the Wairoa and Gisborne districts.
And I agree with you here….””But this is election year when politicians promise all manner of butterflies & unicorns,then do other things altogether if elected.”” but being election year the National mob may pressurise (dollars) the railways for a 4th. term. Interesting. 😉 😉 😉

Yes, we have all seen ALL parties making election promises that, when they come into power, get lost by the wayside, usually because for “unforeseen” causes, like they can not find the money.
Dave Lange comes to mind here. Remember his speech only ONE week after he got in ?
“Labour can not keep our election promises because we had no idea what state the country was in when we gained power”. Really, no idea ? then what on earth was that inept Labour Party doing, even contesting the election ?
And honestly, is the current version any better.
