Top tax rate set to increase under Labour

Labour is still leaking out details of its proposals to clobber the economy with more taxes.

Just a two days after the Government reduced ACC levies and put more money in workers’ pockets – the tipline is hearing that Labour plans to hit those earning more than $150,000 with a top tax rate of 39 cents in the dollar.

That would raise about $220 million a year – well short of filling the hole that Labour has dug for itself with its reckless promises to spend more of other people’s money.

The problems with Labour soak the rich plans is that there are just not enough rich to soak.

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.
