Winston doesnt know how much his election bribes will cost

Media Release
3rd September 2014

Dr Jamie Whyte ACT Leader

Winston doesn't even know how much his election bribes will cost.

”That's because Winston is not even keeping count. ACT is the only party to carefully cost its election policy,” said ACT Leader Dr Jamie Whyte

"So when Winston said by tweet today that ACT is talking gibberish he is just mouthing off."

“Winston goes on about when he was Treasurer and ran a balanced budget as a fiscal conservative. This is nonsense,' said Dr Whyte”

“The fact is that Winston Peters is the most expensive politician in New Zealand’s history. Not only do his promises these elections add up to more than the Greens and Labour parties put together but it was Winston Peters who tore up the multi-party agreement on Superannuation. If that agreement was in existence today we would have a balance budget and sustainable Super".

"The public will believe Winston when he ponies up the figures to back his extravagant election polices."
“While Winston continues to spray costly promises that he has no idea how much they cost ACT will continue being honest with the electorate on the costs and benefits of our policy”

”We invite the public to check out who is being extravagant “ said Dr Whyte
