        • 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?

          • You have learnt dear leader’s strategy well. Ideology rules over common sense. Out of interest were you always an autocrat or did you attend a re-education centre? Stand on your own feet, come over into the light and fight for freedom of individuals and from the tyranny of the State.

            • 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.

                • Well said- the middle class is to be despised for their independence. Labour and their ilk don’t even hide their true intentions of state dependency for everybody. At least last night was a major win for the average Joe in this country. A big loss for those with their hands out. 🙂

                  There is most certainly a place for you in the Great and Glorious state of Aotearoa! Dear Leader appreciates apparatchiks with such vision!

        I bet her staff scattered when Dear Leader arrived back from Caucus after Winston’s emphatic NO to her CGT yesterday. ? ?

      • 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!

  1. 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.

    • Poor James, he looks like he’s about to cry when he’s asked about this massive backdown by Jacinda.
      But no worries, he`ll purchase some Carbon “indulgences” and jet off to a Climate gabfest safe space away from the bad persons where he can wrap up in his cosy blanket of sanctimony.

    • 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.

      • Yardy yardy yardy, keep up the attacks. I have as much right to be here as you. If this blog was all one sided, then you would be talking in an echo chamber. At least I am bringing a sense of sanity to this blog. I only wish there were more like me here.

        • Of course you do dear, did I say anything different? I am trying to think back to whether I was ever so sweet, I don’t think so, how is calling you sweet an attack? I couldn’t agree more about not having echo chambers, it is a preserve that I usually associate with the left.

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….

            May the Grace and Peace of Dear Leader comfort thee through the cold winter to come!

        • 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.

    • Nah they can just copy this man
      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.”

  3. Watched Peter FitzSimonds on Seven Sharp last night telling us that Israel Falou didn’t have a leg to stand on and was wasting his time with Rugby Australia. Shame they didn’t “Ask Alan”(Jones) for an alternative view as well.

  4. Interesting point made on AM by one of the panel,apparently increasing gst by 1% would capture the same amount of money as the proposed CGT would have according to the working group apparently.

      • 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.

      • It’s not hate, but many of us who have never been unemployed, and never set foot in a WINZ office have a real problem with so many in NZ not pulling their weight and wanting the Govt to solve their problems. Wake up- WE are the Govt. It is OUR money.

      • 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.

  6. All this crowing about the CGT from Rich Prick Capitalists! Well the Polls are saying that the Country overwhelmingly wants a Labour/Green Government!

    • You’re too thick to understand that the top income earners are already paying the bulk of the tax take, already paying more than their fair share. The bottom income earners contribute very little to the country’s income. They do plenty of taking though, as I would guess you do.

        • We have free education, business grants, etc. Hell, John Key came from State Home poverty to being in a position where he didn’t need to draw a Prime Minister salary to serve his country. 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.

Now I have three degrees, Bachelors, Post Grad Honours and an MSc. 9 Years of study… so I think I do have an education and do have an understanding of basic economics, and guess what, I probably fit the description of a ” Rabid Right Winger”.

        • Post-grads and intelligence aren’t necessarily mutually-inclusive entities. I speak as a post-grad myself – some of my fellows were, and still are, the most benighted and ridiculous people I’ve ever known. Can barely wipe their own bums, frequently unemployable outside the tertiary bubble. Don’t play the smarty-pants post-grad card round here. You’ll find your worldview might become a little challenged.

      • 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).

  8. It is noteworthy that timed with U Turn the PGF has sprinkled a bit of their slush fund in the South Island. Not so well orchestrated for the Nelson region though. At the time the PGF news was released the NZTA announced more deferments of roading improvements in the region. Lol
