Keep up the fight of your life Jacinda .. You are NZs greatest hope right here, right now. BACKING you all the way!!
New Zealand Labour Party.. PLEASE put out a simple and to the point graphic (that can be shared all over social media) that CLEARLY states that you will not be increasing personal taxes. National voters are lying about this left, right and centre! Also, you NEED to let people know that none of your proposed policies will be funded by any potential new taxes. People are confused and the scaremongering needs to stop!!
People moaning and complaining about child poverty, underfunded healthcare, underfunded social services, oh poor children with no lunch for school, YET... when it comes to the crunch people are happy to bag Arden and Labour about maybe losing a few dollars to tax each week to address these issues!! Do we want to sort these issues or continue to turn a blind eye leaving behind children who deserve more and deserve better?
Coming from a one wage, middle class income, young family with 3 toddlers. We don't live a luxurious lifestyle but we have the necessities and it wouldn't bother me if we had to pay more tax to help support some of these families who have been left behind these past couple of years.
The greed is strong in this country currently.
Decades ago the Tories had their dancing Cossacks election propaganda. Of course they're using the very same nitwit attempt at devious tactics now as always, on their way out...
Bill is a defender of the faith... what is the faith corporate welfare for whoever is able to suckle the teat. Farmers the industry that yes has done a lot for the country under eec days for them who remember... Factory workers for over 80 years have subsided farmers in so way shape or form. Fertiliser subsies... Land development subsidies and you name it subsidies..... Today they have got smarter up the GST and then the taxes of the general population can take care of negligent farming practices of whichever sector they occur in... However on the teat nevertheless Labours taxes look so small in comparison to what Nats have done for so long....... Labour never stopped a lot of it as it all seemed ok at the time but now the disproportion has become such that there needs to be some balancing.... ???
I applaud this but I think Labour to have a press conference and address the country and attack it head on. Standup in front of the country and call them the Liars they are. Call English out on his 7 new taxes that he is saying, call them out in the 30% CGT he is telling people.
It's about winning and Nationals lies are sticking, clear up the tax vaugness and turn the table on National.
It's highly hypocritical of National to be criticising Labour on tax when they have introduced 18 taxies(sorry I mean levies) and seen more taxation under this government than the last Labour government.
It's time to reach the masses with the info not just the faithful.
Their new attack ad shows they are relying on tax being the issue and they blatantly are saying income tax as well.
Yes, the Natrolls have this little to say. No wonder pa ocean and squealing is all they have left. GO LABOUR...!!! Let's do this...
That's sad to hear Waikato Hospital tried to discharge Jacinda's 80+ year old grandfather at 11.30pm last night, but not surprising. Waikato Hospital is currently chocka block and they are trying to discharge people so they can do their lists and planned treatments - but people will be getting deferred from theses because the hospital is chocka block. It is a vicious circle indeed of National's making.
The New Zealand National Party centre-right neoliberal conspiracy theories go together better than bread and butter. They are another a brick in a wall and this fear of uncontrolled social forces is closely related to Bill English two characteristics of conservatism; his fondness for authority and his lack of understanding of economic forces He tend to fetishize the magical powers of "free markets" to solve all social or economic ills. And the sheep follows whilst their children are being led to slaughter.The New Zealand National Party is buying votes with surpluses that came off the back off the poor, vulnerable and extreme funding cuts to essential services.The status quo will ensure that 80% of Kiwis will be tenants in their own country by 2020 and the low wage treadmill will not have changed.Inequality will rage and environmental neglect will significantly reduces tourism revenue. Since the 1960s wages have increased 59 per cent, but housing has gone up a massive 280 per cent. Our market-driven economic system has created huge income inequalities that didn't exist 30 years ago.This decay will be accelerated in the next three years if the New Zealand National Party is re-elected.
She needs to front foot this tax issue because the media have taken national's ball and run with it esp Duncan Garner on the AM Show. Perhaps make a major speech devoted just on this issue. Release the terms of reference and give a view to who will be on the tax working group. If it is about housing and fairness in the tax system, set that out loud and clear that this is all about getting people into houses and about equity with wage and salary workers who pay tax. She also needs to specifically rule out all those stupid taxes that national are talking about eg: inheritance tax.
