  • Jacinda going going gone

    Not sure this was a surprise - Jacinda resigns months out from a GE. It may also open the floodgates with other MPs following her lead.



    Not sure what National would need to do to lose the Election now.

    Will National roll back the following as I believe they have said they would...?
    • Three Waters
    • Interest non-deductibility
    • New top income tax rate
    • AKL regional fuel tax
    • AKL light rail

    There are many more - so I have added the link to the Stuff article for the full list.

    A personal wish...... the rollback of exclusive use of the Maori names of Government departments.

    cheers,

    Donna
    From the Plain Language Act to light rail, there's a big list of things National wants to get rid of if it wins next year's election.

    Interesting times.....

    I'm not sure National will roll back the top income tax rate. They may bring some inflation adjustments to the tax bands.

    Odd, I didn't see mention of interest deductions in the "12 things the National party says it will repeal" STUFF article.

    I wonder what tax policy LABOUR will now roll out? With Jacinda gone, capital gains and wealth taxes will surely be considered. Given David Parkers research effort via IRD on wealthy New Zealanders effective tax rate based on "Economic Income" - which will obviously result in a low effective rate - would LABOUR take a wealth tax to election?

      Stick to the same - no significant policies to announce - vacuum.

      Just shuffle a few shadow portfolios.

      Although I think abolishing the Apartheid-based health system changes are also on the gNats revocation list.

      I can only imagine the furore going on with charwoman Mao Hoota and racist-style-new-democracy jumped-up-Jackson.

        Yes. The Maori caucus is quite vocal.

        Who's your pick for next PM? Chris Hipkins?

          The worst PM in New Zealand's history and the worst misgovernment.
          I'm out to celebrate.

          Yaaaahhooo.

            I know it's fatuous, but if those who are wishful candidates thought for a moment . . . "wonder how the Titanic captain felt?"
            If any real thought happened, there would be no nominations.
            Lose an election and lose your job.

                You had me worried re. the interest deductibility - but Chris Bishop makes it clear....


                “Labour’s removal of interest deductibility was always unprincipled, as well as being a broken promise. A fundamental principle of tax law is to tax profit, not revenue.

                “Mum and Dad landlords aren’t the enemy. They’re critical in addressing our housing supply problems.

                “The next National Government will reverse Labour’s Tenant Tax, as well as the extension of the brightline test to 10 years.

                  You can add removing CCCFA form residential mortgages as Luxom said at the FANZ conference in September. That's a game changer.

                    if the 15 Māori in caucus are united they may sway the decision. This could be the deathnell for their nomination and reversal for maori when they inevitably lose

                        Perhaps, but the block is not sufficient to dictate. The decision requires at least a 66% majority in caucus or, 43 of the party’s 64 MPs.

                        One possibility is that that the new PM trades the Maori caucus votes for the deputy Prime Minister position. In that case, we may see Kiritapu Allan as deputy PM.

                        Ardern is pressuring the entire Labour caucus to make a quick decision by indicating she's out by February 7.

                          How's about charwoman Mao Hoota for PM and wee Willie Wonky for deputy?

                          Then it could be, vive la revolution!

                          I wonder if nothing short of that will stir apathetic kiwi sheople from their moribund torpor?

                          It does seem that comrade commissar Cindy was a puppet and charwoman Mao Hoota was pulling the strings.
                          Will the anti-democracy racists get so lucky, this time round?

                              The only thing that pairing would be good for is to lose the election.

                              The chardonnay socialists would prefer Chippy and Kiri.
