The report of Michael Cullen’s Taxation Working Group is a major disappointment.
It is bereft of innovative ideas, signals increasing bureaucracy, and is a regurgitation of outdated tax concepts.

The demise of the Opportunities Party is another example of a rich entrepreneur having “a go” at politics without any real commitment to a philosophy or core policy.
Gareth Morgan joins a long list of similar people who thought money was going to buy them an easy road into parliament and who gave up when the going got tough. Read More ...

The combination of petrol tax increases and a higher families package is a needless roundabout that will be self cancelling for some households and unnecessarily expensive for many others.
The petrol taxes will have a double whammy effect by also raising the price of food and most other goods as freight companies and shops seek to recover their additional costs. Read More ...
