Libertarianz offers Clark tax cut help

PRESS RELEASE
LIBERTARIANZ
PARTY LIST

Libertarianz offers Clark tax cut help

Helen Clark says she "can't look the electorate in the eye and say that significant across-the-board tax cuts can be afforded while we still maintain our spending on areas that are critical to New Zealanders."

Libertarianz leader Bernard Darnton has some help for Helen: "How about starting with this list below and see which departments, boards, SOEs and quangos present some opportunities for large-scale savings."

Libertarianz suggests the vast majority could be gone by lunchtime.

Gordon Campbell: On Last Night’s Debate, And The Collins Accusation

Debating is a peculiar discipline in that what you say is less important than how you’re saying it. Looking poised, being articulate and staying on topic generally wins the day – and on that score, Labour leader David Cunliffe won what turned out to be a bruising encounter with Prime Minister John Key last night on TVNZ.

Cunliffe marshalled his points better, kept Key off balance and – more often than not – was in control of the general tenor of the contest. Labour supporters would have been heartened, and given some belated reassurance that maybe the change of leadership last year had been the right decision. More>>

So, as many as 90,000 people could derive some benefit from National’s housing assistance plans for low and middle-income earners...

From The Scoop Video Archive: PM Says SIS "Told Me" About OIA Release

In a press conference immediately following an controversial OIA release of notes on an SIS briefing to then Labour leader Phil Goff, Key said "at that point [Tucker] told me he'd release it ...".
