Dalziel Talks About Population Change

- It is very easy to get caught up in statistics, something I am acutely aware of each time the Migration Statistics come out. As Minister of Immigration I am apparently responsible for emigration.

Keith Rankin Defends Home Tax

- The opprobrium heaped onto the 2001 Tax Review committee for suggesting a home ownership tax was so loud and so righteous that it pre-empted any reasonable public debate on both that issue and the other issues raised by the taskforce. See... Keith Rankin: In Defence Of Equitable Home Tax [1]

See... All Blacks Will Win, Say Well-Known Kiwis [1]
