"The question is for a household, are they prepared to pay $3 a week for the insurance premium of our environment and I think the answer to that is yes," he told TVNZ's Breakfast."
John Key. Not for me mate. I am hopping off the smile and wave magical mystery bus. You can give me tax cuts, you can promise to slash and burn the non jobs in the public service. Fuck, you can even promise to drag Clark back in chains and put her next to Cullen in public stocks for us all to fling shit at. But never again will I vote for a person who can sit there and spout absolute gobshite like that.
Insurance premium? You are having a laugh mate. At least I hope you are because if this is not a laugh that can only mean you are shitting in our faces in the exact same way that the last lot did.
Where is this "insurance premium" going? Towards building a big dome over the whole country to protect us from all that evil carbon? Or to fund the SAS to blow up every coal fired power station in China? Or perhaps to build us a humungous rocket ship to fly to new worlds where we can all live in a time where people who dream of becoming vacuous empty politicians are drowned at birth.
Where is the critical analysis in the MSM?
Forget whether you believe in climate change or not. That is completely beside the point. What exactly is this extra tax going to do?
