Reconcile this Phil

Phil Goff started off talking about GST at the beginning of the year saying he would Axe the Tax, turns out that was a lie. Instead his position on GST is that they will try to take GST off fresh fruit and veges. They don’t know how, or what, and presumably the “expert panel” will help them out but that is their policy.

In order to form a government though Phil Goff and labour will likely have to rely on Hone Harawira and what ever band of malcontents he manages to coat-tail into parliament.

Yesterday he was on the Stuff Live chat and had this to say about GST:

Labour are committed to keeping GST, just removing it from fresh fruit and vegetables. Nut he must deal with Hone Harawira, so how is he going to reconcile Mana’s position for the removal of GST all together?

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.
