State assets caught in a vise

The public ownership of state assets is squeezed between the actions of the Government, which wants to sell the assets, and private capital, which wants to buy them. The nation's citizens look on helplessly, while the little man in the corner comments, "They haven't hooned!" (This is presumably a reference to the hoons who have their assets, i.e. cars, confiscated by the police.)

The cartoon is from the Manawatu Standard of June 22, 2012.
