"No new taxes ..."

Deborah Coddington has caught up with Jimmy Jangles's list of all Labour's new taxes since promising not to introduce any new ones on their 1999 Pledge Card. Yeah right.

Here's La Coddington with the latest list.

"This is your money," concludes Deborah. "You are being robbed."

She's right you know.

[UPDATE: Far be it from me to promote two ACT MPs in one day, but justice when it's due ... Rodney Hide has just announced a tax petition "to return the [$6.7 billion] surpluses to working New Zealanders. Announcement here.

"That is $1,600 for every man, woman and child in New Zealand. Put another way, it is $4,000 for every household in the country...working Kiwis are right to be outraged about this budget."

The tax petition can be downloaded here.]
