OECD statistics, gotta love 'em

[Imported from Whale Oil Beef Hooked on Blogger]

Labour and it’s apologists love quoting OECD statistics….you know NZ is rated third behind Zimbabwe for a biased press etc etc etc.

Checking in on the Friday Night Free for All at Silent Running after watching Distraction on Two, I saw this post.


OECD revenue statistics out this week:


Useful when arguing with lefties over tax. Don’t let them tell you NZ taxes are less than Oz. Not by a long shot. Incidentally, in the Aussie press today, flat tax proposals were costed by the Australian Treasury (at 30 per cent) and found to be possible within the underlying surplus. Interesting. (If you’re into that shit — sad I know.)

Very fascinating reading particularly the tables and graphs.

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.  And 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 that takes no prisoners.

He is fearless in his pursuit of a story.

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