Rev Up the Government

[Imported from Whale Oil Beef Hooked on Blogger]

Go to the site that the Government tried to hush up. Register and show your support for fixing Aucklands roads.

The Employers and Manufacturers have provided this rather telling and in-depth detail on the state of Aucklands roads.

My favourite page is the one entitled Petrol Tax: Highway Robbery.

You can see from their figures that almost ½ of the cost of petrol is made up of tax.

And Labour continues to sock us with following Tax increases announced since 1999:

2001-July Crown Revenue Petroleum Excise Tax 0.70 cents/l
2002-March Moving Forward Package 4.20 cents/l
2003-April ACC Levy Increase 2.78 cents/l

2005-April Investing for Growth 5.00 cents/l

2005-July ACC Levy Increase 0.70 cents/l

Future increases that have been announced:

Annual CPI indexation of NLTF Excise duty 0.50 to 0.75 cents/l

Petroleum Fuels Monitoring levy increase 0.70 to 1.00 cents/l


Carbon Tax 4.00 cents/litre

As much at home writing editorials as being the subject of them, Cam has won awards, including the Canon Media Award for his work on the Len Brown/Bevan Chuang story. When he’s not creating the news, he tends to be in it, with protagonists using the courts, media and social media to deliver financial as well as death threats.

They say that news is something that someone, somewhere, wants kept quiet. Cam Slater doesn’t do quiet and, as a result, he is a polarising, controversial but highly effective journalist who takes no prisoners.

He is fearless in his pursuit of a story.

Love him or loathe him, you can’t ignore him.
