John Key is being hauled over the coals for his hypocrisy by announcing tax cuts without the facts yesterday and rightly so, says Labour’s Finance spokesperson David Parker.
“After carrying on for days and demanding more details on other parties’ policies John Key is now facing a grilling of his own. He has come up short.
“He demanded a debate on the minutiae of Labour’s capital gains tax despite that information clearly being determined by an experts’ working group.
“But when he releases a tax cut policy minus any facts he refuses to answer the questions. It’s desperate stuff and he’s done it over the head of his Finance Minister.
“National’s fiscal plan has made no allowance for spending in coalition negotiations, unlike Labour.
“Tax cuts were National’s big silver bullet to get out of the hole of Dirty Politics. It has backfired,” says David Parker.
