Let's remind ourselves that before the election John Key promised not to raise GST
So on the day the National Party raise GST to fund a tax cut, two thirds of which will go to the wealthiest top 1 third, let's remind ourselves that before the election John Key promised NOT to raise GST...
...why isn't this snippet on loop throughout the mainstream media today rather than endless bullshit stories about how retailers are repricing everything. Why is retailers repricing a news story yet the fact the Merchant Banker Prime Minister promising not to raise GST before the election and then raising GST ISN'T A STORY?
John Key said if his Government had done its job, he promised he wouldn't raise GST - the fact he is then, by his own damned words, means his Government HASN'T done it's job.
And I quote: "If the Government are doing a half decent job there will be no need to raise GST" - John Key 2008 - before the election.
If Helen Clark had pulled shit like this, the NZ Herald editorial department would be firebombing Government buildings.
The really frustrating thing is that Key has never been challenged on his GST pre-election lie. The day after he announced the GST rise and the VERY DAY him promising NOT to raise GST surfaced on You Tube - Close Up bumped Key for an interview with an All Black who groped a teenager on a Fiji beach. Thanks for keeping us all stupid mainstream media.
So far today the TV news have spent more time on Paris Hilton having a car crash than the fact our Merchant Banker Prime Minister promised not to raise GST before the election, while raising GST after the election.
