So, in the light of yesterday’s budget, I propose a quote competition. Post your favourite Nat quotes! We could start with two categories. First, foolish tax cut promises. Here’s some starters:
Key, quoted here: “Under National, personal tax cuts are a priority. New Zealanders will be able to believe in our tax cuts, they will be able to trust our tax cuts”
English, quoted here:. “National has structured its credible economic package to take account of the changing international climate. Our tax cut programme will not require any additional borrowing.”
“National will not be going back on any of those promises, as we fully costed and funded them.“
The second category is inspired by my favourite post election comment, this outstanding example of bare faced gall!
Key, quoted here: “And they’re [Labour are] scaremongering, that’s the worst kind of opposition.”
Why not help National out here with some examples of their own outrageous pre-election scare mongering…
