David Shearer and Russel Normans $14 billion Budget blowout

Labour and Greens have been leaking their 2013 budget over the last 12 months.

Owl’s Observation

Affordable homes $3.5 billion
Andrew Little raid on ACC Fund to pay for Christchurch $3 billion
Greens printing money $3.5 billion
NZ power company raid on super profits $4 billion
Total: $14 billion. 

That’s $3,000.00 per person. No wonder David Parker the finance spokesman for Labour and Greens said he wasn’t going to comment on tomorrow’s budget because he can’t work out how he was going to tell taxpayers that taxes need to go up 10 cents in the dollar.

I guess he kept his paper and pen in his top drawer and closing it slowly while muttering….£€^%#<~}. Maybe Russel will be better?

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.
