The Herald reports that Paul Keating once tried to teach Tony Blair how to hate his opponents. He also advised:
Keating also had some tips for Blair on economic issues, telling him that if he ever became prime minister he should avoid income tax hikes at all costs.
“Tony, promise me you won’t raise income tax. It’s death.
“Labour parties around the world have enough to contend with without hanging that round their necks. It’s not worth it.”
Luckily in NZ, Labour is suggesting they will campaign in 2011 on a policy to increase income tax for rich pricks.Tags: Paul Keating, tax, Tony Blair
