    Queenstown bed tax proposal will not be replicated

    lies! they've pushed through a tourist bed tax in auckland, which has gutted long-term investors in hotel pools

    hence crippling future hotel building

    David - remember saying something about a tradie who gets a GST Return wrong and the W'gton woodenheads who mostly just get things wrong and how they excuse them . . .

    I spotted this in the item linked, below.

    I thought about that comment of yours, immediately.

    Government shifts goalposts on 1800 new police promise after PM questioned in Parliament

    Seems just like the aspiration for 10,000 affordable homes each year and no new taxes and . . .

    Yes, sigh, these guys just all do this. Adern comes across as an honest person, but obviously she's finding it hard to be honest when things are going wrong. It's like she's becoming corrupted by the system. If you are totally honest, all the time, then you are out next election...

    But if you fudge things a bit, whilst still appearing honest, then you can perhaps get another term.

    Of course Winnie doesn't even bother with trying to appear honest, he's a crook through and through and everyone with half a brain knows it. Trouble is, the old dears over 60 don't have half a brain any more...

    So, they seem to be able to set these targets, make promises and then get away with not fulfilling them. And indeed, refusing to admit they even set those targets, or made those promises at all. And people still vote for them.

    Trouble is, it's both sides of the house which do this.
    Squadly dinky do!

    Funny, I've only noticed Labour come up with stupid targets that they promise to hit if they get elected.

    If the politics outside his office was difficult, that going on inside it was becoming toxic and untenable.

    Insiders claim decisions were often made on emotion rather than reasoning.

    It finally happened:
    https://www.stuff.co.nz/national/117...our-days-leave

    Jacinda Ardern will take four days leave from Prime Ministerial duties to recover from dental surgery, which she is having on Friday.
    It's understood she will be under general anaesthetic and will take four days off, including two days over the weekend, to recover.
    Stretch the top lip, pin back the ears and tighten the neck.
    Next year, she'll be beautiful for the election.

    The unfortunate truth facing Ardern and her Labour colleagues is that the likes of Peters and Jones are feeding the media with what is becoming a non-stop diet of the conflict-ridden material which the nations’ newsrooms crave.

    It has to be assumed that Jones’ contribution to coalition dynamics —usually in the form of an oversized spanner chucked into its workings — has as much if not more to do with leadership succession in New Zealand First as being a constant pest to Labour

    That offers no solace to Labour, however.

    The impact is to marginalise reportage of Labour’s announcements.

    For a political party which promised 2019 would be its “year of delivery”, belong shut out of the picture is something that Labour does not have the luxury of affording.

    Just another chapter in a succession of failures for Taxcindarella and co.

    Trouble is, where's a viable alternative?

    Would she be any better, though?

    Thinking of past records.
