The Tiwai Point alluminium smelter (or Comalco as I knew it) has been a bone of contention since I was a teenager.
Now that the climate has completely changed and we are heading into a major depression is this (despite the foreign ownership and the toxic legacy) a disaster for Southland and the national economy?
It is not at all straightforward.
The Greens would like to pretend that we are not heading into a depression and they don't care that much about 1,000 workers, let alone Southland.
