An All Black has joined a rugby writer in attacking the cost of living in New Zealand.
Justin Marshall, 36, agreed with rugby correspondent Peter Bills that New Zealand was an expensive country - and not just for visitors. Bills - sounding a caution ahead of next year's Rugby World Cup - said the prices of everyday articles had "horrified" him and Kiwis were "victims of massive overcharging". He said New Zealand was becoming "one giant rip-off".
Previously, power, phone, net and supermarket companies have been found to have over-charged by up to 500% - costing consumers billions of dollars.
Power alone is said to have cost consumers an extra $4 billion over a 10 year period.
NZ really expensive, says All Black - National - NZ Herald News
