G News – the good news
After a week of factless ranting about our non existent catastrophic relationship breakdown with China, the MSM suddenly dropped the topic and fucked off onto a new topic for the next weekly news cycle.
The good news is that after a week of gnawing angst from our MSM over baseless hype about New Zealand’s relationship with China – this pile of bunk was tossed into the rubbish bin and we moved on from that shit.
Not so good was that it was immediately replaced by feverish speculation about what parts of the recommendations from the Tax Working Group might stick and become legislation.
As if speculative spin will do any good two months before anything is decided.
Utter morons suddenly became tax experts like Duncan Garner, Mark Richardson, Mike Hosking, Audrey Young, Simon Bridges, Gerry Brownlee and Paula Bennett.
Like a flock of fuckwits they all rushed to pen their opinions that the sky was falling, two months before the Coalition decided anything.
Rubbish I know, yes, it’s boring but still some of us ignored it completely.
Somewhere in Point Chev someone celebrated a birthday and staggered home, entirely oblivious to all of this shit – while the MSM fuckwits bleated frantically about the end of the world.
Notably every single fuckwit claimed the middle classes would be most effected while none of them referred to any hard statistical data to support that bogus claim.
The vast majority of the extra tax would come from the wealthiest 20 per cent of Kiwis, who own more than 80 per cent of the assets that would be newly taxed.
The reason National have to lie about how a CGT will mostly impact the middle classes is because they don’t have the numbers amongst the top 20%.
So they have to misinform New Zealand hard out.
Even Michael Cullen said he reckoned this tax shit would end up being reduced down to just the property related tax and the business tax etc would be dismissed by Cabinet.
In which case Winston will be hailed a hero again.
In other news – Paula Bennett said she was worried about Taxi Drivers in Taranaki in 30 years time, after a bogus report paid for by BIG OIL was passed around the MSM as if it were the gospel truth.
Nobody believed Bennet gave a rats arse about Taxi Drivers and most people never even read the Big Oil report she was bullshitting on about.
Yet they still held opinions about it and that dreadful woman wanked on about how worried she was – after helping to decimate the Taxi Industry herself.
Thankfully the report was 100% bebunked because : it was crafted to leave out 30,000 new jobs that would be created by alternative energy industries, the report also ignored the 100,000 square kilometres of sea bed that is still be explored under existing permits and….and the report was based on another report that said – this is an attempt to quantify the almost unquantifiable.
Jacinda kicked Simon’s ass again about the Housing Waiting lists after she revealed National had removed Category C and D people off the list in 2010 to make it artificially look better.
The far more open and transparent Coalition put those categories back onto the list and it sprang back up to 2010 levels. ( over 10,000 )
Thousands of angry Nat Troll barked and foamed at the mouth over this with no fucking clue what had really happened.
I watched their ignorance and said nothing.
No headlines clarified the matter and most people did not even know about the issue.
Speaking of not knowing, a gathering of men at a “Men’s Night” in Sandringham grumbled about how Labour promised no new taxes , but not one of these men ( so smug, so knowing ) knew how they had been lied to about what was really promised and none of them could accept they were uninformed or too lazy to check what they heard.
Well maybe one of them could.
The MSM had shortened “No new taxes beyond those we have already committed to in our first term” down to “No new taxes”, but the men at the men’s night were all blissfully ignorant about this and comfortable in their misplaced outrage over this lying government.
This same microcosm of ignorance is repeated across large segments of New Zealand society.
Sometimes it is best to say nothing unless you know your facts.
Facts like none of us are Gerry Brownlee.
New Zealand beat Bangladesh in the cricket but nobody could say what that meant after India gave NZ a towelling in the first three ODIs.
You’ll have to wait till the World Cup to find out.
PM Ardern told the Aussie PM that Aussie deporting people who hardly lived here to NZ is corrosive to our relationship with them.
You can tell an Aussie , but you can’t tell em much!
Remember the underarm?
I’ve got to go make a coffee for the wife and make the bed.
