Labour at last has done the right thing, and will be putting the Tax Working group decisions to the 2020 polls, and will only come in if they get re-elected. But this flip flop does make me wonder if there is some division in the party, as wasn't JA clear that these policies would come in before the election?
Just a question, is Labour also planning on removing GST off fruit and veges? I recall this used to be one of Labours policies 1 or 2 elections ago. But haven't seen any mention of it this time around? If they no longer have that policy, anyone know why they have removed it, because the need for that sort of policy would be greater now than ever. Apparently NZ first want this to come in.
I can't believe that policy is real. What do you spend on those? $10 a week? So that saves a whole $1.50?
A family would require a lot more than $10 per week for fruit and vegetables.
Mine doesn't. Even doubling the amount saves...$3 a week.
KFC chips? They are vegetables...
It's not a problem for me - I can't stand many vegetables and eat no fruit at all, ever. I can see why vegetarians might want to loose the GST on their main food source though...!
