Jim Hopkins: Hurrah for Fat Controllers and clever choo-choo plan - 09 May 2008 - Politics: New Zeal

Some of my favourite quotes:

"Paying the thick end of $700 mill for a grimy bunch of clapped-out trains is daft!! With a capital Duh!!!!!!"

"Perhaps it's because they're a nostalgic echo of the 19th century much like the Treaty, with which our leaders are also needlessly besotted.  Perhaps it's because trains are the limit of their technological imagination. Perhaps it's the irresistible thought of all the new stations they can open and ribbons they can snip."
