Oh How The Left Lie

McCarten is fairly dripping with envy and jealousy as he sets out to tell us how he is neither envious nor jealous.

A whole column is wasted as he trudges through the same old same old tired litany of leftist claptrap.

The fool (who usually doesn't let his guard down so badly) doesn't realise that ordinary Mums and Dads don't want to be there just to be 'his poor' so that he can continue to draw a salary spruiking for them. He actually admits he has lost the war because his erstwhile 'poor' now have become rich Mums and Dads.

The newly rich aren't being asked to buy shares in basket cases like KiwiRail.......

.........Instead English is offering plum assets such as Kiwibank. It's a big money maker and he wants to let the "mum and dad" investors join the party.


Nowhere is there a better demonstration that the left needs to keep you poor in order for it to survive and prosper. They need to keep you dependent on them for your meal ticket. How dare these ordinary hard working New Zealanders get ahead on their own! We can't have that.

The silly bugger doesn't realise he gave the game away with his too clever closing one liner. The Left don't like it when a center right government actually makes the poor a little better off. It's like sticking cold steel up their Omdurmans.

Let real political debate begin. I'm not jealous of the rich's new wealth. I'm just annoyed that in the Budget they got it at the expense of the poor.

Only problem with his argument is that the poor all were made a little bit better off by the budget. But facts never got in the way of a good leftist mantra.

McCarten should go off and join Phil The Greek's strategy team. They might give him some lessons.

But how much more are the "rich pricks" getting?

Beauty in the simplicity of the lie...

Well, they will be a little bit better off if:

1. Property owners don't pass increased costs put on them by the budget to their tenants.

2. Retailers only increase prices by exactly the 2.5% added to GST.

3. Nick Smith isn't lying like a politician about how much the ETS is going to cost.

I admit, it is conceivably possible that all three of these could come to pass. But then, it's also conceivably possible that I could win the next three Lotto draws.

Is that all you've got, Milt?

I presumed it went without saying that people with money to invest in Kiwibank are pretty much by definition not "poor," and that McCarten is exactly right about tax cuts for the well-off being at the expense of those not so well-off. Those two are basically self-explanatory. Obviously it didn't go without saying...

I have not seen any denial that those who pay the majority of the tax will be getting taxed less.

What is simple is that if you decrease a number by a certain percentage then the larger the number the greater decrease in numerical terms. Geddit?

Please, cry me a river.

Yes. It's entirely straightforward. However, it's also entirely irrelevant to the discussion at hand, seeing as the budget didn't uniformly reduce everyone's tax by a percentage.
