    Can this government get one promise right?
    I doubt it.

    "The Government has conceded its flagship transport policy has been put on
    ice, again.

    "It had been obvious for months the project, a light rail line from
    Britomart in downtown Auckland to the airport, was troubled, with coalition partners NZ First openly saying it wouldn't progress this Parliamentary

    "After almost three years, light rail finally made it to the Cabinet table
    on Monday. Transport Minister Phil Twyford should have left the Cabinet room closer to a decision on who would build the enormous infrastructure project.

    "Instead, it was axed, which the Government was forced to admit on
    Wednesday, saying it would be kicked back to officials after nearly three
    years of deliberation."

    Let the Anzacs learn for themselves what we Yanks discovered LONG ago.
    In the age of the automobile, "Light rail" and "high-speed rail" are little more than boondoggles and White elephants that never pay for themselves, let alone turn a profit.

    Recently the Spanish have come to that conclusion, but they won't say it out loud: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MYWYhPVwJBY

    It's said that insanity is defined by doing the same thing over and over and expecting a different outcome. The Land of Fruits and Nuts continues to flog the dead horse of high-speed rail, despite sinking $100 billion into an economic black hole: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DnyWRS-t0BA

    The US is not the EU and will NEVER be, GET IT?: http://rlu.ru/2I0F8

    Also, ever notice that the loonie Left and eco-kooks
    DEMAND light rail and high-speed rail, then turn around
    and howl that it's "destroying the environment"?
