Goff has been making a lot of noise recently about standing up for the middle class. Reducing the squeeze. As I have remarked before, the objective of the left has always been to crush the middle class, as Lenin said, between the two grindstones of taxation and inflation. And for some decades now, they’ve been doing very well with this strategy. Can a leopard change its spots?
Yesterday afternoon Duncan Garner asked Goff directly- “does his rhetoric mean that if he is PM, he will introduce tax cuts for the middle class?” Here is Goff’s answer-
“They will be facing absolutely no tax increases and if we crack down on tax avoiders and dodgers… and we can get further revenue from those sources, then down the track, they’re the people, if there is a chance to give tax relief, that will get it.”
This is what he calls “standing up” ??? Its nothing but meaningless obfuscating cowardly waffle. What contempt this cheap con man must have for NZ voters that he thinks he can utter such weasel words and earn their vote. How depraved and empty the field of politics must be when representatives would offer such words without a skerrick of apparent shame. What a shallow pool of talent the Labour party must have if they would elect as leader a man so feeble of mind as to utter such words. Whenever I think I have seen the worst of the left, they always come up with something that forces me to reassess. This is so bad, it almost makes John Key look decisive and purposeful.
