    What would a Simon Bridges candle smell like?

    Some light relief. Steve Braunias watch out.

    That article is ridiculous. Those charts are both nonsense. The difference between 48000 and 70,000 is 22000. - Always. The tax on that portion of income is $6,600 for everybody, no matter how much over 70k he or she earns.
    Hard to know why you would post that link to such an inaccurate piece. Either you didn't read it or, more likely, you couldn't understand it.

    This is exactly what he said:

    "People on the average wage shouldn't be paying almost 33 per cent in the dollar. Tax relief is one part of how your family can get ahead."

    Anyone who understands our tax rates will know what that means.

    Except for those who choose to play around with words.

    I agree he is a player who cant be trusted. Suggest he will be dumped soon if the rest of the party have any sense.The SFO trail will lead to him imo.Last straw for the party?

    Excellent article from Gordon Campbell

    Gordon Campbell on the political donations scandals

    "Footnote One.
    The surreal ‘pot calling kettle black’ aspects of the NZF donations scandal has been underlined by the media-generated rumpus over two journalists being photographed in a public place by someone in New Zealand First ! Egad. On RNZ this morning, Bridges expressed his disquiet at this photograph ending up (allegedly with the collusion of NZF) on a blog closely tied to Whale Oil. Really? Readers of the Dirty Politics allegations about the systematic leaks previously to that blogger by senior National MPs can only be amazed at the hypocrisy."

    Good almighty false idol & god!

    This the very same Gordon Campbell who wrote that the Adern/Winston government was going to herald in an era of hope, optimism and promises kept for NZ, especially for the youth of the country?

    The calculations made in the article are based on incomes of $53000 or $64650 per year. Tax on either of those incomes at no point reaches 33 cents in the dollar.
    Bridges is incorrect in his statement which seems to be a common occurrence in National Party announcements.
    The article is neither ridiculous or nonsense.

    If the Committee for Ideology and Discipline are no longer filling Ximons rice bowl because of austerity measures will he abandon his kow towing to the leaders of the one party state?

    I am not a fan Ximon Bridges but last nights item about him by Jessica Much McKay on One network news was a tawdry smear.

    Hes self nailing his own coffin with his complete disregard of the lockdown, his selfjustifying and sense of entitlement are his undoing. His lame excuse "my internet is dodgy" lol.
    At some point soon his party will have to act but who to replace him with?

    Nonsense JT. Bridges is effectively running parliament in the absence of the Speaker. It should be of no surprise that he finds it easier to be in Wellington for the days the Select Committee meets and other work that would need to be done around the fringes. I doubt he drives between Tauranga and Wellington for the fun of it or out of eagerness to provide you with ammunition.
