Why stop at schools

Nats may let landlords own state schools – 01 Oct 2007 – NZ Herald: New Zealand National news

National is looking at letting the private sector build and own the physical land and buildings for schools, whilst the State is essentially a tenant.

Labour of course has reacted with frothing and spitting despite the fact that have already done exactly the same thing with police stations and hospital car parks.

One has to ask why we don’t do the same thing with prisons and hospitals and dare I say it, roads.

Currently the Crown rents a great deal of office space from building owners in Wellington, if Labour are prepared to “die in the ditch” over the Crown being the owner of property for schools then why not for office buildings in Wellington?

These discussions show innovative thinking on the part of National and pure ideological dogma on the part of Labour.
