Helen Clark takes a swipe at government over Interislander ferry incident

Helen Clark news

Former PM Helen Clark has criticised the government following the grounding of the Interislander ferry Aratere, which was carrying over 40 passengers between Wellington and Picton.

The vessel ran aground in Titoko Bay, but no injuries or environmental damage were reported.

Clark highlighted on social media the coalition government’s decision not to allocate new funding for upgrading the ferry fleet, referring to Finance Minister Nicola Willis’s decision last year to halt additional funding amidst cost escalations.

Clark’s comments come amid ongoing concerns over the maintenance of the Cook Strait ferries, with Transport Minister Brown expressing dissatisfaction with KiwiRail’s handling of the fleet.

  1. That marketing photo of Helen Clark is woefully out of date. I was looking forward to seeing her name in the newspaper’s obituary by now.

    • EXACTLY!
      And YOU (@^#, just like any other ‘government’, bought voters’ votes via debt for nice-to-haves, by selling our hard work and even that of our children for that debt. YOU lot enslaved New Zealanders for generations to come.
      And just because the sheeple have yet to fully grasp that crime, you think you can open your gob which we thought to have shut up! Times are changing and the people are waking up!

  2. P*** off helen your cronies decided to employ 50 thousand extra government workers over funding the ferry or lots of other more important projects. now we all have to pay the piper. crawl back under your rock

    • I passed thru Palmerston North this past Thursday, and was astounded to see the most f@#ked-up traffic pattern next to the Rangitikei Street Countdown store on what I think is Featherston Street.
      It has a new modern bus stop kiosk, then the Communist-inspired Greenie cycleway, then the bus stop area that actually is IN the street itself, and blocks southbound traffic.
      The design is said to have come directly from the Mayor (whoever that might be..) and it truly shows a visual if not dysfunctional image into the thinking of so-called ‘City Councils and Planners’.
      I’m just trying to figure out which magical mushrooms these people are putting in their hot winter soups, as warmth any other way is too expensive (ie ‘heating / electricity) while the Council Rates go up 15% per year, and NO increases in the GRI.
      They want the elderly plus the sick and disabled DEAD as they are …(ahem…U.N. dialogue coming…) USELESS EATERS and PRODUCERS OF A NEEDLESS CARBON FOOTPRINT!!!
      How can you leave a ‘Carbon Footprint’ when cruising on one’s mobility scooter, or wheel chair?
      We are ‘CONSUMERS’ of healthcare causing backlogs and costly medications, we breathe air that is now reserved for Global Bolshevik Communists who are WEF / WHO subscribers, and we do not wear Green to celebrate Green as the new (Communist) Red.

  3. If Bluebridge can make a profit, why isn’t inter-islander? It is because the people in charge are focused on diversity (woke) hiring, and not at running a successful business for the New Zealand people. Who was driving by the way. This person should be arrested for negligence. The ferry’s have anchors … why were they not used?

  4. Helen clarke… Arderns keeper… WHO HAS NEVER SPOKEN UP ABOUT THE INJECTION DEATH AND INJURY. F HER. UTTER GLOBALIST AGENT SABOTEUR.
    Sickening how these traitorous sellouts still walk free let alone count in any way for comment.
    Clarke will stand trial with the rest. Treason. Conspiracy to commit mass murder /democide.
    Clarke lined us up…
