Fran's War Cabinet to tackle Financial Crisis


Our favourite Fran, Fran O'Sullivan today calls for a War Cabinet- both the big parties coming togther to get New Zeland through the economic crisis ahead.
Certainly the idea of bringing in a wider range to talents to develop a recovery plan is an excellent suggestion.
But considering how Liarbour helped get New Zealand into the mess, they are hardy qualified to help get us out of it.
However, I hope John Key looks at Fran's suggestions, such as a council of economic advisers, aproductivity commission, etc, etc.
The crisis shaping up to be a bad one, and John Key will need all the help he can get to articulate and deliver the radical action that will be necessary.

No! No! No! We need decisive leadership - not yet more snouts in the trough!

Douglas started it alone.
Richardson did it alone and got part of the way there.
If enough people Party vote ACT - English will have no choice to have Douglas as finance minister - in a far worse situation than 1991 - there will be no choice but to finish the job once and for all.

30% immediate cut to all state servant's salaries before xmas.

30% immediate cut to absolute number of state servants before xmas. (no redundancy neither!)

flat tax rate of 30% on all income up to 100,000: zero tax rate after that.

termination of all benefits including WFF.

immediate closure of Kiwi bank; forclose on all mortgages.

immediate sale of all other SOEs including RNZ and TVNZ

yeah the bleeding heart lefties will howl: if they protest have the truckers run 'em over or the police baton charge 'em and shoot 'em down.

there were no riots in 1984 or 1991. there will be none this year, either.
