I don't think this will work

Reserve Bank suggests floating gst – New Zealand, world, sport, business & entertainment news on Stuff.co.nz

A floating GST rate, I can’t see this working to halt inflation, not when inflation is largely fueled by excessive and poorly controlled government spending. All this measure will do is pour money into the government coffers as GST rises on necessities that people can’t avoid and will also increase the prices and thus inflation.

I think it is time for a clean out at Treasury, they are clearly bereft of ideas.

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.
