Referendum results for asset sales--read into them what you will.

Take a good long look at the figures below. John Key may put his 'spin' on them but it is not hard to see some interesting 'standouts.' Only a very few hard core national areas gave the Government the figures they wanted and no one would be surprised at that. The turn-out figures are also interesting. In some obviously National electorates the 'Yes' vote was low. I find it hard to believe anything in the way of interpretation coming from John Key's mouth. We all know that the National Government is not going to 'listen,' so we will just have to give them the real message next year at the election. By that time JK will be safely ensconced in his holiday home in Hawaii. The no doubt the new Government will buy back the assets when the share price hits rock bottom. Sound familiar?
