      Like you said, one has to go away and mull this over a whisky which in my case is our premium Tequila Mexihcah!

      Yeah, the more I think about it, the more I think it is fair. Hard sell though…

      So you still have my vote, but almost lost it!

      Thanks Tristan for pointing this out. Apologies for not picking up on your original same question.

      Good on you Gareth for getting out there and standing up. You’ll be up against some of the most nasty people in New Zealand, e.g. the Don Brash example (always smiling…hmmm):

      And nowadays the right-wing bloggers.

      Stay away from the negativity.

      Also you don’t have party resources behind you and you also do not have the benefit of having been to National Party’s “Candidate School”, for example. This is both good and bad.

      So although I like your get out there and speak attitude, and with your own speeches, you are at a disadvantage without the backing of the political speech gurus and spin doctors by your side, i.e. those who made John Key and other politicians so popular with mainstream New Zealand.

      However, if you stick with what you are doing and don’t give up, I will vote for you.

      But going back to my original suggestion/question, can you not leave out people with one home from your tax equation? However you word it, I cannot agree that taxing a persons own home is good, and is actually more likely morally incorrect. Better if you abolish the rates that people have to pay on their homes so that people really do own their own home.

      After all, a man’s home is his castle.
