I don’t know much about ACC, have never needed it to any large degree, but I wonder about this article. Is Rod Oram, usually sound, off his rocker or are we being spun into partial privatisation by rhetoric?
ACC IS a mess, according to the prime minister and Nick Smith, the agency's minister.
Only a wholesale clearout of ACC's board and changes to legislation and policy will secure its future, they say.
But there is a huge gap between the rhetoric of John Key and Smith, and reality.
