Labour has tried to say they decided to axe the carbon tax because they reviewed it, and it had nothing to do with other parties. Never mind they couldn’t get it through Parliament.
Just to show how upset they are, Dr Cullen is again threatening that he may have to cancel the 2008 tax threshold adjustments. Oh yes that $8b surplus just can’t survive without the carbon tax to make it bigger.
Personally I hope Cullen does cancel the income tax threshold adjustments. To quote Clint, go ahead and make my day. Because the only thing which could piss people off more than giving them an 89 cent a week tax cut, is to then take it back off them!
