Yesterday, Rahui Katene said the Maori Party could walk away from National if they didn’t adequately compensate low and middle income people for increasing GST.
Do you think it will happen?
No way. Do you Tariana Turia is going to give up her Crown car and the other baubles of office?
Probably end up voting in favour of increasing GST. They’ll pull the old Pita Sharples ‘whoops‘ excuse:
“Sometimes we pass a bill and then we forget we passed it and talk against it. I have to ring the Prime Minister and say, â€˜Whoops’. Or he rings me.”
