MikeAqua:

 

Jacinda plans to tax water use and agricultural emissions and to invest (mainly) in Auckland housing and infrastructure.  Those taxes are money that will be sucked out of the regions and into treasury.  How will that make the regions 'strong'?  How does she expect main centres (like Auckland) to function as service centres if the real economy suffers?

 

 

What will the $ effect be on each bottle of wine?  And on vegetables? 

 

Edit, how many farmers affected?

 

 

As specific numbers haven't been fixed, any vaguely feasible claim is defensible.

 

Water is typically used at multiple points along a production chain and those charges can be expected to aggregate.  For example in producing wine water is used in irrigating, harvesting, vintning, making packaging and bottling.  Depending on how and where those things are done and where they get their water cost will be added in.

 

But I'm not concerned about the effects on the price of wine.  It's a nice to have and I would benefit from buying less of it.  I'm concerned about the aggregate amounts of tax that will be raised from regional economies to be spent (mostly) elsewhere.

My apologies, I inferred from the various funny names used for Trump on GZ threads (including by me) that politicians were fair game ...

Yes, a bit tough on her to deal with that in what are the most busy days before the election

I see the Govt has said to it's people not to travel unless essential. I expect that JA won't be affected as her Broomstick is powered by magic :) 

 

(yes that is a joke).

Some people have no sense of humor. Relax, take a deep breath.

Well, no-one knows. That's the issue. 

 

 

 

I'd suggest there will be an increase in the price of fresh vegetables and fruit from the water tax.
