    Default Hot Air and Vote gathering

    An investigation into supermarket prices.....oooohhh.
    Let's see...that will involve spending thousands on paying someone to write a report saying...oh yes, they're expensive here.
    Like we don't know that.

    And then?

    Like the petrol price thing....report was done Dec 2019.. And what happened? Yep, nothing.

    Do people really rush off to vote based on this crap?

    Let me help you out : {No charge}.

    For a good number of years now Iíve travelled regularly to the lucky country, (Aus}.

    So I can assure you that both their Supermarket Prices and Fuel Prices are approximately half of ours.

    And just to put the icing on the cake, our Supermarkets, along with our Banks, are Australian owned.

    Have a nice day.

    The Countdown chain is owned by Progressive Enterprises who also own: Woolworths, freshchoice & supervalue, which leaves fairly slim pickings for the rest.

    And the NZ ones are Pak N Save, new World and Four Squares, Fresh Collective and Pak N Save Mini.
    No idea where there is a mini though....

    Not the point who owns what, it's the waste of time by the govts....which is the point.

    That's how media works! If you want people to believe something even if it is a fake story, when media hits - everyone believes.
