Cullen Wrong On Tax, Again - Young
Cullen wrong on tax, Again
Tax is the issue for the 1999 election.
“Cullen’s attempts to down-play the importance of the tax issue shows that Labour is running scared on this issue. Their polls tell them that Labour has mis-judged the mood of the electorate on tax. Labour MPs fail to understand that no-one likes it when the Government takes money out of their pockets,” said National List MP, Annabel Young.
“Cullen failed when he tried to manipulate the tax numbers but he has finally realised that it is the idea of paying money to the government is a big electoral turn-off. “
Annabel Young says that Labour has forgotten the message that the Alliance got at the last election. “At the last election, Alliance ran on higher taxes and they were punished for it. Surely Cullen’s memory stretches back to 1996.”
