No tax cuts for you

It’s official by the way, the tax cuts are cancelled.

Jacinda Ardern has confirmed the Government she leads will dump the tax cuts planned by National.

Ardern has also suggested a planned referendum on legalising cannabis for personal use could be binding.

The Labour leader addressed media at Parliament today after a caucus meeting that elected the 21 Labour Ministers who will serve in the new Government, along with ministers from NZ First and the Greens.

Ardern confirmed National’s tax cut package would be cancelled. New Zealand First and the Green Party both voted in favour of the package.

“It means dumping National’s plans and replacing it with Labour’s tax package which is substantially more generous to lower and middle income families.”

Well, we better strap in.   They’re coming for our money.   And there isn’t a damn thing we can do about it.

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.
