And don’t forget selling our assets offshore!

Doesn’t look like much compared to CGT, tax-free zone, GST off fresh fruit and vegetables, R&D tax credits, ETS on farming, skills and training investment ….

    I voted National because of the cycle way as I could see the potential in jobs and exports

    I was ready to start a chain of Lycra changing stations up and to the country where these bone brained advert festooned Lycra clad clowns, could change into fresh garments so not to offend other cyclist or the locals especially in hot weather.

    A golden opportunity missed by this government, as we could have franchised that and exported it like a Mc Donald’s chain.

    Our small fledging Aerospace industry could have designed and manufactured an airworthy cycle rack to hang on the back of aircraft. This would enable tourists to bring their own bicycles with them. Boeing, Douglas and the European Airbus manufacturers would be queuing up with orders for these racks. Imagine the number of jobs that would have created towards the 170 000 this pack of clowns said they would produce. Oh. I forgot, after the new diesel rail engine debacle those jobs were not for New Zealanders they were for China.

    And finally, with tax rip-offs, employment rates and conditions approved by Warner Brothers and provided we all bow down to Peter Jackson I am sure we could negotiate with Monty Python to make a film of “Bicycle Repair Man” in New Zealand. The earning potential of this would eclipse the success of Lord of Rings.

    It was stupid to suggest that a national cycle way would get this country out of the poo.
    If labour had suggested it, there would have been the same hysterical ranting from the right as we are now getting over the Capital Gains Tax. This tax is long overdue,

    According to the latest polls the general public is still being conned by smiley Key and his pack of incompetents. They are in for a big surprise if Mr. (I will not raise GST ) Key wins the next election as he will introduce a Capital Gains Tax at some later date and we will end up with both, sold off state assets as well as a capital gains tax.

      Jokey spoils you for choice:
      Sold, Screwed or Conned
      Too conflicted to choose?
      With a cabinet of dicks
      (eg http://thestandard.org.nz/open-mike-02092011/#comment-370582)
      Jokey looks for more suckers

      Rise, rise and rise
      O mighty Pole, err Poll

    • tc 3.2

      The nats will never introduce a fair across the board CGT as that impacts the asset rich more than the middle/poor.
      It’ll be more tax cuts for the already well off as the last cuts didn’t stimulate so we must need more….then some more as that round of cuts will not work etc etc
      It’s not so much the public being conned by key alone but the ‘media’ assisting them in selling the lie with biased reporting or non reporting and dodgy polls they jump up and down about as if they’re accurate.
      I put the ‘media’ like that as it’s not actual media but mediums of delivering their masters message.

    I think i can see Kyle Chapman in the background with a sniper’s rifle, or possibly Cameron Slater?

    The Labour version would show Phil Goff on his bike, with the same caption.
    And David Cunliffe in the background ready to stab him in the back? Oh no can’t be him he hasn’t got the guts.
    Must be David Parker then. No can’t be him either, he is busy winning Epsom for Labour.
    Oh well Shane Jones come out of the bushes now and trip him up before the election. Can’t do that either, all election posters are made to show Phil Goff and the party cannot afford the “airbrushing” these photos to make him look like Shane. Pity really as Shane is the only one who can take on John Key. Opprtunity lost.
