It's great to hear that we have our own Johnny Cash based at Mahia who likes to remind us of his favourite song (I Walk the Line), as he repeatedly tells us all how many millions it will take to repair the Gisborne-Wairoa rail link.
Blah Blah Blah, and yes, this may be true but if our last Government can waste $23 million on a failed flag change, and this Government is spending $50 million to retrieve dust from the Pike River Mine because the minority wanted it, then they can afford to fix the railway.
Let's get on with something positive. When all the Covid-19 concerns have settled down, let's fix our rail line.
Don't get me wrong — I do care about all the workers at the mine who lost their lives and I also care about their loved ones, but no amount of money spent will bring their bodies out. Let them rest in peace. We all know where they are and I am sure that a great memorial can be put in place at the mine.
Being negative about the reasons not to replace our rail line is not what we need. “It will never happen” is super negative.
