Those of you who are forced to pay child tax will know the mantra of the tax police, “you have to pay … it’s the law.” I am sure many of you are aware of the harsh measures Mr Dunne’s tax police use to insure you comply with the law.
Today saw NZ First walk out of Parliament over Dunne’s flouting of the legal requirement to have 500 eligible members.
If you pay child tax, you must comply to the law. If your the Minister of Revenue you don’t have to comply with the law . That is hypocrisy at its best.
As Winston Peters put it : “What you’ve got is a Speaker saying I’ll give this man six weeks… to comply or otherwise. That is simply third world banana republic type of decision making and we won’t accept it.”
One law for everyone – except Peter Dunne.
