'Asset Share Bonus' final theft for the rich
Bonus shares eyed to sweeten asset sales
Cheap share packets and bonus shares are being considered as the Government prepares its first sell-down of state-owned assets.
Seeing as the only people who will be able to afford these shares are the richest NZers (those who were given almost $3 billion in borrowed tax cuts), the idea that we will now bonus those same Shire volk has all the rapacious character of a vampire squid high on meth feasting on an infants face.
This is a subsidized public mugging, the impacts of which will deform the economic potential of the next generation.
