The Green Taliban were on Firstline this morning criticising petrol tax increases… Turei has no shame.
The Green Party is ending this year on a high with polls showing it could possibly form a government with the Labour Party.
Co-leader Metiria Turei is buoyed by the party’s form, personally rating it as high as a 10 out of 10.
It is continuing the platform which saw it succeed in 2012 – attacking the Government – by criticising increases to petrol tax and road user charges announced yesterday.
The Greens have a series of new fossil fuel taxes in their policies… and they’re a lot bigger than anything the Government has planned. The Greens also have plans for minimum emissions standards to pass a WoF (more costs for the motorists) – and they’re against oil exploration (supply/demand).
