Meet the Real Colin Craig
Meet the Real Colin Craig: Dishonest Vanity Politician
Watching Conservative Party leader Colin Craig struggling to explain his tax policy on The Nation this morning finally revealed that he is making dishonest promises.
Craig claimed that a $20,000 tax free threshold would reduce government revenues by $4 billion.
Confronted with two expert opinions that the cost would be $7 billion he admitted that his policies are ‘uncosted.’
He believes that such savings can be made by reducing the number of MPs to 99.
Even if every MP, their offices, and their two-to-four staff and travel added up to one million dollars each, that would only save $21 million per year, only $6.979 billion to go.
Craig seems to believe that policies such as tax are merely a prop to his self-funded bid for political power.
Craig is either making it up or mucking it up.
His dishonest policies are a betrayal of those who support him.
He should properly cost his tax policy or abandon it.
