        • Comrade Holysheet,
          how did you gain access to Dear Leaders top secret glorious plan to Make Aoteroa Glorious Again, eradicating inequality buy the surgical application of targeted taxation to “Rich Pricks”, liberal administration of “Captains Calls” and a continuous wave of “relendless posidividy, which will close the gender pay gap, stop emo kids topping themselves and totally eliminate vehicle related deaths?

            • Comrade Waikatogirl,
              If recent events have taught us anything, its that peace, security and all things good can only be found in the loving embrace of our Glorious Dear Leader. Come over to the light, where you can live a life without care, worry… or possessions.

              • “Come over to the light, where you can live a life without care, worry… or possessions.”

                I’m already living life without any cares or real worry, although I do have some very comfortable possessions after a long life of hard work and sacrifice. Work is good for the soul. What respect can comrades have for themselves if they haven’t earned what they are handed? I guess that’s why the comrades at the Politburo keep the masses ill-informed with the msm propaganda machine, a growing poorly educated, needy and hungry for more handouts.
                But then Cindy believes, above all odds, that she has the right recipe to spread her Marxist nirvana throughout NZ. Just as long as she and her mate Grant the finance minister can bleed the taxpayers for every drop of tax she can wring out of them.

At least last night was a major win for the average Joe in this country. A big loss for those with their hands out. 🙂

      • Your hard work and decent job is supposed to keep Labour’s core constituents out of poverty.

        More correctly, since Labour only ever pays lip service to the poor, your hard work and decent job is to help Labour’s other core constituents…the bureaucrats!

  2. The Green Party have no integrity, as expected.

    Quoting Shaw:
    In February on Morning Report he boldly suggested the government didn’t deserved to be re-elected if it didn’t follow through with a capital gains tax.
    Now he’s changed his mind.
    “Yes this government does deserve to be re-elected. We are taking bold action on climate change, on ending homelessness [and] on cleaning up our rivers.”

    Didn’t Shaw say there would be inaction on carbon emissions for the next six years? Hasn’t homelessness increased under his watch? Possibly someone else can comment on rivers, but it seems by Shaw’s own words, that his government doesn’t deserve to be re-elected.

      • But they were such good friends from their days in Britain, Ryan Bridge asked Shaw when he had spoken to Peters, I wonder when he last spoke to Jacinda, there would be no need for her to speak to him ever.

    • No mention of the Kermadecs, the most shameful position on the Greens part, closely followed by the lack of cameras on ‘our’ fishing fleet, as so much quota is owned by Maori, where is their practical application of sustainability and their guardianship, Kaitiakitanga, does that not survive the profit imperative? So much virtue signalling, so little virtue.

      On listening to Shaw this morning, there were not many what I would consider Green things that he considered wins, other than shutting down oil and gas, is Jacinda prepared to share that with them?

      • Poor Shaw, I felt genuine sorrow for the little guy when he got thumped by that nutjob. It’s obvious that his Butch Mum hadn’t taught him how to throw a punch and stick up for himself. That’s how it was in my day. My grandfather took me out back under the clothesline and showed me left and right, taught me how to do it properly, because, as he said, the world is full of arseholes, and one of them is bound to take a swing at you one day. Gotta be able to stick up for yourself. Tough old geezer, went off to WW2 when he was over 40, and ended up as a prisoner of war in Crete. He eventually escaped with the help of partisans and was evacuated by a Greek submarine. Wharfie, tugboat captain and harbour pilot, he was one of the original Labour supporters back in the 30s. He’d be spinning in his grave if he could see the Labour Party of today.

          The only story line when the Tardis Stove is white is that of being oppressive force.

          The last episode, as a surprise cliffhanger twist, would reveal that it wasn’t a straight white old male in control at all! It was an orange man all along.

Yes, we are glad you are here, its a constant reminder of the lunacy of the left and why most of us will never vote Labour. Remember, if you want to argue coherently, a well-developed hypothesis based on sound empirical data is always a good start. Don’t look at Labour for either at this stage, they are still getting through vacuous “feelz” stages of grief, denial and anger at the massive back down they have had to endure….

        • Like rightoverlabour says, you have no right at all. You have been accorded a privilege. But insofar as we all have been accorded the same privilege, your statement is correct. However I believe at least one of holysheet’s aims in setting up this blog was to escape the sudden strictures that have engulfed Kiwiblog and provide an echo chamber, as it were, where people can say whatever they damn well like about the Communist mule-toothed wannabe who’s nominally in charge, and her government of fools and idiots. If you’re looking for more like you, then leave here and head over to The Standard.

      I was doing my taxes and finding it difficult to figure out exactly what I had to pay. I called up the IRD and asked how I could streamline things and make the payment easier.
      They replied, “We have an option for you where you can just walk over and hand $5000 to your lazy feral neighbours.”

      • Do you think that ‘poor’ people don’t vote National? My opinion is that aspirational people who are currently ‘poor’ will want to retain more of their hard earned money when ‘they’ reach their goals. The system that you seem to espouse or support keeps them down and down trodden and dependent because they are made to feel that there is nothing that they can do to change their position and that only the government can do that for them.

        It becomes a circle of self perpetuation.

        • My parents were probably pissed off none of their children ended up voting Labour (or the Greens) like they did. I’ve always put it down to the fact that we easily saw through the empty platitudes of socialist politicians and instead saw them as they truly were: power hungry egomaniacs that were only too willing to trample over the corpses of the poor to get to their positions of power.

          The Left have a vested interest in keeping the poor, poor; they’ll lose too many votes if they actually got the poor out of poverty. It’s better to say things that sound well-meaning but are practically useless.

      • If you are sad about the CGT being binned, you could always calculate what the CGT on you Kiwisaver would have been and give it to the IRD. I understand that the IRD are willing to accept donations. Cindy could then give your money to the poor to top up their meth supplies.

      • It wasn’t my idea it was the Jacinda’s via the working group, with her terms of reference, if anyone hates the poor it is them, as they want them to remain dependent and poor and un-aspirational, if your unicorn could fly and aspire, then it could be Pegasus with a horn.
        The way that I see it is that since it is all about Jacinda, she gets the brickbats and bouquets, she has been getting a lot of bouquets, but I sense that the brick bats they are a coming.

There are equal opportunities for everyone in this country and they will be able to realise those opportunities once the Left take their jackboot off their neck and start encouraging people to own their future. Rather than trying to keep them poor so they’ll beg for dollars in exchange for votes.

      • Right G. But this mob still are still blinded by ideology that prevents them seeing any of the unintended consequences attached to every move. Artificially pushing incomes up automatically push up the number of children in poverty. While others pushing for bigger increases are penalized by bracket creep for minimal net gain. The old socialist MO for increased tax gathering.
        However most are sitting back to await their laugh fest coming soon. A Wellness Budget! Ya. Added to which Ministers have had to put their case for their demands for bigger allocations. How will this be effected by this latest U Turn? IMHO opinion this U Turn was decided long before the actual announcement. Evidenced by it being proceeded by a compliant Colmar/TV1 poll then held to be delivered ahead of a long weekend during a recess of the House. Get the popcorn ready.

    • With 40% of NZ receiving more in benefits than they pay in tax and 3% of our population paying nearly a quarter of all taxes I would welcome paying my fair share.

      I am a bit surprised though to see a Leftie arguing for a fairer tax system. How do you intend to do it? Reduce benefits or increase taxes paid by the lower brackets?

      • I’ve occasionally pondered whether the ‘progressive’ income tax law should be flipped.

        $0 to $14k, 33% tax
        $14k to $48k, 30% tax
        $48k to $70k, 17.5% tax
        > 70k, 10.5% tax

        Afterall, we know from tobacco and alcohol percentages (as examples), that tax is a punitive measure, i.e. to try and get people to stop or reduce using those products. It stands to reason that under the current income tax rates that they’re also designed to put people off earning more. If they were inverted, it would encourage people to try for higher incomes.

        It might also be fairer; as those that want to receive more than they pay, will end up paying more under this change.

        (Personally, I’d prefer a flat tax: that way everyone has skin in the game whenever a politician wants to be generous with other people’s money, but the above idea might be interesting to pursue).
