The three waters reform has been pushed out of the daily headlines by a resurgent Covid-19, but Nanaia Mahuta's asset grab hasn't gone away.

Their command-and-control style hasn't worked with housing, property or with preparing NZ for Delta, so why would anyone believe it will work for water reform?
