Gower on the Nats and their lies – Patrick Gower: National guilty of biggest campaign lie
My verdict is in: National is guilty of the biggest campaign lie.
It has been deliberately spreading misinformation that “Labour is raising income tax”.
This is not true.
But that hasn’t stopped Bill English and National’s advertising campaign from spreading the false claim.
The reality is that Labour has actually ruled out raising income tax.
I think this is a worse piece of misinformation than Steven Joyce’s fiscal hole.
This is all part of National’s scare tactics.
Sure would be good if some other media called the Nats out on this too.
