Facts matter Josie

Yesterday on The Cauldron, Josie Pagani and I set about each other over taxation.

Her claims were that the “poor” pay more in tax than anyone else…my contention was she was talking rubbish.

Lindsay Mitchell points out who was right and who was wrong.

The topic for discussion was tax cuts. Cam said that half of people already pay no tax (or words to that effect). That tax cuts for them would be ‘smoke and mirrors’.

Josie Pagani mounted an absolute denial saying that low and middle income people pay more tax than wealthier people relative to their income.

Time to remind ourselves that

…households earning under $60,000 a year ‚Äď which is half of all households ‚Äď are expected to pay 11 per cent of income tax. ‚ÄúWhen we take income support payments into account, as a group they will actually pay no net income tax at all,‚ÄĚ Mr English says. Read more »

Cam on The Cauldron at 16:00 on Newstalk ZB

Join Larry Williams, Josie Pagani, Barry Soper and some guy called Cam Slater on The Cauldron.

The format of the Cauldron may be different today, mostly because instead of commenting on political stories, I am the political story.   At this stage, it is expected that I will solo with Larry for the first half of the show.  Then I step back, and the rest of the team can comment on matters without me getting in the way.

This is the likely format, but it can still change. ¬†I’ll try and get Pete to update asap this if that’s the case.

Cam on The Cauldron at 16:00 on Newstalk ZB – [UPDATED]

[UPDATE]
ZB tell me Cam is not going to feature on the Cauldron today. Cam told me he is. Apart from the foibles of trying to run a media organisation from my bedroom and control a Type-A personality that’s now probably in a Kava induced coma, let’s all get together and see what is actually going to happen – Pete

I will be calling in from Fiji, so there will be little point watching me on Studio Cam.  Perhaps just use this charming photo with my The Edge death stare instead:
