The editor

Dominion Post


John Key justifies his electoral bribe of tax cuts saying that his government will be “back in surplus” next year.

This is a lie. A $68 billion lie.

Because $68 billion is the debt that government (and we, the public) owe after six years of borrowings.

New Zealanders should reflect on that before voting. We are being bribed with money we don’t have; must be borrowed from offshore; and will have to be paid back.

What is supremely ironic is that John Key and Bill English then have the gall to label Labour and the Greens as “fiscally irresponsible”?

National won the 2008 with promises of tax cuts.

They were unaffordable then, they are unaffordable now.

$68 billion in debt. Think about it.
