How about we avoid a totalitarian state
I am expecting you will be disappointed
no, that is doing what the electorate has voted you to do.
why? the electorate has given Labour a mandate to govern alone.
Labour is highly aware of and deeply concerned about both those issues already, you know that Weka, why pretend otherwise.
the greens are superfluous to requirements
Why? Do you not wish to live a life where you get to make personal choices? People who blame everything on "the system" or "the Government" are pitiful.
Hey Alien, see what I mean? The membership of the Green Party seem to think that the wealth tax is a brilliant idea and the membership makes the decisions right??
That does not alter the fact that the Greens keep raising it. What would your response be if the boot was on the other foot? Scott's sentiments/fears and his wish that Richardo etc would shut up are well founded.

Labour will dump the RMA and free up housing development - great move. well done. This will actually achieve results, much better strategy than Kiwibiuld.
yes, I got that wrong, they pay 1% on the amount above $1 million.Say the house is now worth $1.6 million, that means they need to find an additional $6,000.00 per year after tax for the rest of their life - another winner from the kind, sharing hard left....
yes but as soon as one of them dies the surviving partner will start paying wealth tax, financial hardship piled on top of grief. - such a wonderful thing for our aged community to look forward to, thanks Greens
vote green for wealth taxes
agreed, well stated.
are you sure about that?
so if there house is worth $1.5 million and they live for 25 more years, the government will take $375,000 when they die, that is really a vote winner [Read the policy before you comment on it. It might help inform you. A retired couple living in in house ...
does the term "Political Suicide" mean anything to you Rosemary?
