    How about we whack another couple of extra cents on to enable the peoples power generating assets to stay in their ownership.

    I am not sure as to how reliable my memory is; but before the last election Didn’t Key promise us all tax reductions? Or was I just hallucinating? Can some of you people help me out here? Am I right or Left?

      Your memory serves you well.
      It was Shonkey, Joyce and Double Dipton hallucinating when they crunched the numbers/ lied to the nation that means we get 9 cents extra on a litre.

      One thing is obvious about this cocaine crazy wall st hack, he never remembers anything. His advice is: life’s a party, drink up sleepy hobbits it will reduce the pain from being fucked over.

      Yeah but when Key promises you’ll pay less tax, you’d better get it in writing that he’s talking about levies, surcharges, fees, duties and contributions too.

      Because ALL that shit has gone way up in the last four years under Key and English.

    John Key “Mr Show me the Money’ were you going to get it from Phil? Whats the real cost got the numbers Phil come on ha ha “Show me the money” you see you cant trust Labour with the purse strings unlike National we have costed our policies. Im Mr Key Financial wanker I know it all Im Mr Smart arse “Show me the Money”.

    If only the audience new aye in twelve months time the show me the money turned into im going to tax you more.

    But once again hardly a peep out of Labour bugger me.

      I’ve thought this so many times since the election. ‘Show me the money’ should be haunting this government in much the same way that the Westpac stadium full of kiwis leaving for Aussie should. Basic really.

  8. The Republicans are on a path of self destruction over the fiscal cliff over here in the US, and National in NZ is even worse on lots of issues. National needs to wake up to the Keynesian reality, austerity doesnt work in recessions or deppressions. New Zealand will never reach surplus because every year National holds power tax revenues decline, unemployment increases and exports decline as the manufacturing sector implodes. In 2014 NZ will reach a debt to GDP ratio of at least 50-100% so the MSM and National party supporters are still on Planet Key, not planet Earth.

    This cartoonist (Emerson) is about as funny as pulling a woollen glove over a hand full of hangnails.

    He was the safe (and unfunny) replacement for Malcolm Evans, who was sacked in 2002 as a result of the Herald management being browbeaten and harassed by right-wing Israel apologists.

    The hysterical campaign of denunciation, led by David Nathan and Lesley Max, followed Evans’ drawing of cartoons that criticized Israel’s terror campaigns in the occupied West Bank.

    Yes johnno show us the money Mr financial whiz kid!
