we’ve had another one of those u-turns by lunchtime from brash…this over lowering gst..(an idea that as a ‘fair for all’ method of lowering taxes has merit..but that’s another story..)
brash told some punters and a reporter in rotorua that lowering gst was one option he would look at..cullen then came out and savaged him..pointing out this would cost nearly 2 billion dollars..and just where was this money going to be coming from..
after a pause, there was a screeching sound and a smell of burning rubber from gnat hq..and a minion rushed out to inform the waiting hacks that “no, no, no,no…we won’t be doing that now..”
cor..just making it up on the hoof , eh..?
promise them anything to get them to vote national..eh?..
and to hell with the cost..eh?
