GST exemption gaining momentum?   Leave a comment

Today’s presentation of a petition to Parliament for GST to be removed from food shows debate around this is only going to intensify leading up to the election.

It seems there’s support coming from Maori and Mana Parties and the Greens. With Labour’s stated policy to remove GST from fresh fruit and vegetables there is growing public sentiment which National may find hard to bat away should they be forced into tough post election negotiations to stay in Government.

Of course it’s not just low income households which would benefit. The biggest spenders would save the most. So it could be a real vote winner.
