…this is the Billionaire class, the 1% richest who are pumping millions into the National Party to ensure their interests are protected and wealth taxes never happen.

The latest Government-commissioned survey suggests replacing fuel tax with wealth tax – and people love it!

That’s right, the people who have suffered under the yolk of cruel taxation want the rich pricks to pay for more!

There are 14 Billionaires in NZ, and 3118 ultra-high net worth individuals, let’s start with them, then move onto the Banks, then the Property Speculators, the Climate Change polluters and big industry.

There’s no point making workers pay more to rebuild our resilience, tax the rich!

-Sugar Tax

-Inheritance Tax

-Wealth Tax

-Financial Transactions Tax

-New top tax rate on people earning over $250 000 per year.

-Capital Gains Tax

-Windfall profit taxes

-First $10 000 tax free

The Reserve Bank Governor is clearly telling us to raise taxes to pay for the rebuild, if Chippy’s Bread and Butter politics is to mean anything, he has to tax the rich to pay for the rebuild.

The 30 year neoliberal experiment in NZ cut the State back to the bone and the political project of the Right ever since is to tax-cut starve off revenue for the State so it can’t redistribute it in the first place.

What we saw with Covid is that you desperately need a State with capacity. So many of the problems we encountered was the shear slowness of an underfunded, under capacity public service.

With the economic recession, the geopolitical shockwaves and catastrophic climate change upon us, we must have a debate about the capacity of the State!

The filthy rich know this, the filthy rich fear this and that’s why the billionaire class are sinking so much money into National and ACT.

The real question here is are Kiwis stupid enough to vote in the political interests of the Billionaires class?

Well, are we?

National are the party of bankers, billionaires, farmers, property speculators and all the aggrieved reactionary class who can’t see their petty bigotries are being manipulated for the wealthy.

  1. “The real question here is are Kiwis stupid enough to vote in the political interests of the Billionaires class?” Those guys don’t generally throw money away so the answer is will be yes unless there is a pre-election, re-education campaign.

    The latest news has the National party digging at Labour for not applying a Bank Profit Export tax and that National would(nt), such humourous tragedy.
