The idea of Solid Energy being broke is utter bullshit. Key and his government are only saying this because they know there is a referendum in the very near future. Now if they pull a new bullshit story out of the hat targeting the populous suffering “dum kiwi syndrome” the referendum vote will swing in favor of asset sales.
With all the main news paper headlines, I can just imagine the average kiwi talking in the bars, work place etc etc saying ” What the F*ck? Sell it before it collapses entirely”. Key and his dodgy mates get a cheap Energy company. In the mean time $300 to $400 million of tax payer money issued to bail out Solid Energy disappears into la la land.
