Government thinks ahead and buys back rail

I am so excited that the government has bought back the railroads!  It shows Labour is committed to thinking into the future.  This Labour-led government thinks long term.  The railways were run down in the early 1990s after they were sold off.  The way forward is rail, not road.  If we invest in rail infrastructure the long term gains are far greater than building more roads as petrol prices rise.  It is so reassuring that the railways will now be in the safe hands of a government that invests in helping New Zealand plan for future events, something NOT integrated into the business plans of a private company.  Way to go, Dr Cullen!
