LIES, DAMN LIES AND STATISTICS

IMHO it would appear that some nicely biased "statistics" wheeled out by Mr 
Preston with respect to the granting of waivers.

Of the 114 waivers or thereabouts - I'd hedge my bets, about 99% would 
represent waivers of cumbersome/over protective legislation/listing rules 
etc. that the average Joe Bloggs would have no idea about or would in anyway 
impact on there lives.

Although not present, Mr Preston should perhaps have delved a little below 
the surface to see exactly what the 114 waivers represented and then 
compared the number of "material" waivers with those granted in another 
jurisdiction.

Disc: Am in no way linked to the NZSE
