I don't understand all the "new tax" faux outrage aimed at the new government.
National had been flagging this as coming down the track for at least 2 years.
You'd still be getting this "new tax" regardless of whether Red or Blue was in charge.
It's not about red or blue. It's about promises made, and promises broken.
National never campaigned on new taxes, Labour did. Don't even get me started on all the other promises they made and have already broken. There is no faux outrage, it's real outrage.
