"Our preference would have been for lower taxes for these families. We cannot understand why it is that tax is taken from a low wage worker and then given back to them, under another name."So that's what Rodney's been chatting to her about during their recent, cosy tete-a-tetes :-)
Revealing her inner-neocon, she explains:
"By the Government redistributing the tax, they deny the initiative, entrepreneurship, and creativity that should be rewarded by a higher working pay"What to make of this logic-defying, contortionist, fence straddling? Perhaps being "bi-cultural" means always being able to see both sides of the coin?
Maybe it's a Maori thing ;-)
