TAX FREEDOM DAY GETTING LATER
Tax firm Staples Rodway calculate Tax Freedom Day every year. How many days do you have to work to pay tax and rates before you can work for yourself for the rest of the year? Last year, you were in the clear on May 1st. This year it is May 8th. Good thing we threw out that tax-and-spend Labour Government!

ACT STANDS ALONE ON TAX
ACT understands the real reason for the delay in Labour’s list announcement: they’re trying to make room for Steven Joyce. Joyce has joined the socialists by ruling out tax cuts. He is not even sure about bracket adjustments, saying “I’d like to one day. Can I do it this time? I still don’t know. Maybe.” This is a real quote.

LEST WE FORGET
Free Press salutes those who fought and died far from home to secure our freedom this week. They will not be forgotten.

NATIONAL DISAPPOINTMENT
This week, National is working with the Māori Party to pass weak reforms to the Resource Management Act, adding bureaucracy and pandering to iwi interests.

WHAT DO THE REFORMS DO?
Within six months of a local body election the Council must identify Iwi in its jurisdiction and make an Arrangement for planning. So after the democratic election comes an undemocratic one. National will try to play down the significance of this move, but if you’re on the fence you need only ask yourself: Why have the Māori Party been prepared to walk away from Government to achieve it?

ACT LAYS DOWN A CHALLENGE
In a full-length interview with The Nation on Saturday, David Seymour laid out ACT’s challenge for 2017: To hold the balance of power after the election, stop New Zealand First, keep Labour, the Greens, and Mana out of power, and hold National accountable to taxpayers. The full interview is here.
