Tax increases on working people: GST hike, replaced Labour’s cuts with cuts for the rich, put tax on your employer Kiwisaver contributions, cut WfF tax credits.

Record emigration to Australia: 53,237 last year, 1000+ per week.

    Its Newspeak ala 1984.

    They also cut the tax credit on Kiwisaver contributions in half.

    And let’s not forget all the other taxes and levies they’ve increased to tax you more through the back door.

    How much has your car rego gone up since national took office?

    Shouldn’t the National banner in the graphic read “Not our loved ones” (for higher taxes)? I think many of us feel very unloved by NACT.

    But according to TV3 news this morning Key and his mates are still the flavour of the month. Where’s Shearer and why is he not taking it to them and got them by the jugular. Shearer and the Labour party are conspicuous by their silence.

      Labour decided silence was a winning tactic apparently. One hopes they are over that now. http://www.nzherald.co.nz/nz/news/article.cfm?c_id=1&objectid=10801484

      Labour will be the party sweating the 5% at the next election. all because of the stitch up between Shearer, robertson and the rest of the behind the scene puppeteers. So now we have dead duck shearer in charge of the deafening silence. People leaving willy nilly so that other sycophants can be put into power. Shit they may as well wear blue they are that bloody useless.

    The Problem with Labour’s late run tactic is that sometimes you get the timing all wrong..

    Having always been a Labour Party supporter my patience has all but run out with them now. The silence coming from the Labour camp is almost deafening and is doing no more than setting themselves up to be a party bereft of any real fight when it comes to taking the National Party to task over issues that are having a serious impact on the country and it’s people. National are as good as dictating to the people of this country now and is it any wonder that Key and Co. continue to ride high in the polls when no one is willing to try and bring them back down to size. And what of the National Party voters themselves? They have all but given Key free reign to do as he pleases, to make and break election promises (hollow bribes) without ever being questioned as to why he promised so much and has failed so miserably to deliver on anything other than making his rich mates even richer. I think this country is in serious trouble and I’m convinced that something will eventually give. That people are nearing breaking point with struggling to get ahead while those in power continue to make it harder and harder for us to do so. Truly sad state of affairs that this country will no pay dearly for in years to come. Thanks National.

      Research has shown that Authoritarian followers will never, ever question their leaders. In fact, they will almost always defend them no matter what those leaders do.

        Perhaps the Nat voters are fearful of the Greenpeace Party dictating to Labour, under Grant, how the country is to be run. There will have to be a Labour Greenpeace coalition as the Nats will still get the most seats, but not enough to govern.

        Lemmings!

  8. I think it is time to ask our young to seriously think things through before starting a family as what is the debt burden going to be for each child born in NZ, are prospective parents willing to put children under such a debt at birth.

    I sure would not want to be having children who will turn round and ask their parents why they knowingly brought them into a world with such debt given to them at birth.

    and kiwi kids are the second highest sucide rate in the western world.
    the place is going to hell in a handbasket but crafar farmers and the wannabee milk monopolists ae rubbing their hands with glee.
    its all working out for THEM!
