I just don’t know what to say anymore, this buffoon is about to be crowned Prime Minister by an electorate angry that Jacinda saved 20 000 lives!

He can’t even get his Tax lies straight…

Election 2023: Christopher Luxon apologises for tax policy inaccuracies – immediately repeats error

National leader Christopher Luxon has apologised for not always being accurate in saying who gets what in National’s tax package, but then immediately repeated his error.

The party has been under fire for selling the tax package as delivering “up to $250 a fortnight” for a family with kids on the average income, but sometimes omitting the words “up to”.

Labour says this would have led the average family to think they would be $250 a fortnight richer under National, but that was a “scam” given only a fraction of 1 per cent of families would qualify for that amount.

While campaigning in New Plymouth today, Luxon apologised for when the words “up to” had been missing, which even happened in one of the party’s official press releases

“If I’ve missed that a couple of times, I apologise for that.”

He then immediately made the same mistake in explaining what the policy meant for certain people.

“If you think about the 130,000 families that actually will be entitled to our family boost tax care rebate to deal with the early childhood costs that they have – that’s another $150 a fortnight. Think about an average median income, single earner, that’s $50 a fortnight.”

Prompted by media about whether he should have said “up to”, Luxon replied: “I said ‘up to’, up to $150.”

…Jesus wept NZ, this right wing muppet is seriously who you are about to make PM?

Labour, Greens and Māori Party on a. bad day are a million times better than National, ACT and NZ First on a good day.

National hid the fact only 3000 of the richest landlords would get their full tax cut but they’ve tricked you into thinking you were getting the $250 per fortnight and after apologising for hiding this, he goes and tricks you again, because they knew they had to hide it and have trained themselves to keep the lie hidden by using the exact phrasing they have been caught out doing.

You have been tricked by the culture wars to think rich peoples interests are your interests.
