No Welfare Payments To Rock Stars - Libertarianz
Libertarianz Deputy Leader Richard McGrath today attacked
to underwrite a musical concert in Gisborne.
He suggests we reflect on what these political
hacks want to do here. "They
are advocating using money, extracted from taxpayers by the IRD, to line the
pockets of some of the wealthiest people in the musical industry."
"These rock stars and operatic performers are
already millionaires. It is
utterly obscene for a government to sanction the compulsory transfer of
money from its own citizens to these performers."
asks that the now controversial concert be allowed to
or fail on its own merits. "Why should a person wanting to celebrate New
Year's Eve in their own way be forced to subsidise a party in Gisborne that
no one wants to go to?"
