Labour’s ‘Axe the Tax’ campaign has hit the road” says the post. Except they have no plans, policies or intention to axe any tax – and certainly not GST -- and the campaign that has just hit the road is paid for by you and me.
Out of our taxes.
Irony, thy name is Labour—a party who, hitherto, never saw a tax it didn’t like, or a tax increase it couldn’t get in behind .
Mind you, if it inadvertently gets some of those stall-holders at the markets getting in behind an actual axing of GST – the bain of market traders everywhere – the campaign might have done some good.

NB: Just for the record, the only political party I’m aware of who actually does have a policy of axing GST is Libertarianz. If PhilGoff really is keen on the real thing, I’m sure they’ll be only to happy to receive his membership form in the post.
UPDATE: Yep, their road trip is being paid for with your dollars.
