Wait ... what??? Don't tell me there are consequences for doing stupid things just to score political points that you have to face once you are elected??? Who could predict that removing the Auckland fuel tax would result in less revenue for the projects it was funding??? And on that theme, next will be the 3-Waters fiscal hole for funding essential infrastructure ... Would be funny if not serious for the average NZ ratepayer eh?

Policy weighted voting system. Surely it can be done. It’s disgusting that (by the polls taken) Aucklanders would rather have the regional fuel tax retained rather than a promise of slightly cheaper gas… and no one in central govt is listening.
