20/08/2019New Zealanders are being fleeced at the petrol pump. The reality is that the biggest fleecer is Jacinda Ardern’s Government with all the taxes it’s piled on. https://t.co/g3MAPS5TKi304100
24/08/2019The Prime Minister spoke in riddles this week about Ihumātao, saying she speaks directly to herself. It’s time to speak directly to the protesters by telling them there will be no sweetheart deals, so it’s time to go home and let some houses be built.18339
19/08/2019Talk of law changes for prison letters by the PM today are simply excuses to deflect from Kelvin Davis & Corrections being asleep at the wheel. The law doesn’t need to change. Kelvin & Corrections just need to wake up & do their job properly.14926

25/08/2019I’ve just launched our Economic Discussion Document. We’re doing the work now in Opposition so we’re ready to hit the ground running in 2020.6322
25/08/2019We’ll repeal 100 regulations in our first six months of office and eliminate two old regulations for every new one we introduce in our first term.447
21/08/2019Speaking at the @Infra_NZ Building Nations Symposium today. My Government will invest in the infrastructure to get New Zealand moving.425
25/08/2019We’ll make sure there is quality cost-benefit analysis for any major new regulation, ensuring the Treasury has a greater focus on providing sound advice on the effectiveness of Government spending, identifying wasteful spending and driving higher public sector productivity.356
25/08/2019We’ll establish a ‘Small Business Payments Guarantee’ to make sure more small businesses get paid on time.143

21/08/2019Phil Twyford tells Infrastructure NZ conference: “Decision by Cabinet early in the new year” on light rail. This is the project the PM promised would be finished (to Mt Roskill) by 2021! There’s no chance you’ll be running down Dom Rd in your undies @simonjbridges09

21/08/2019The Government could reduce petrol prices tomorrow if they really wanted to. But they’re raising taxes instead. National will get rid of the Regional Fuel Tax, saving you 11.5 cents a litre.031
22/08/2019Pretty clear who’s making the most sense on Ihumātao. And it’s not the Prime Minister.059
22/08/2019Labour cancelling vital transport projects to muck around with a slow tram in Auckland has left the sector with nothing to work on, pushing NZ closer to an infrastructure crisis. If work doesn’t start soon on major projects, we’ll lose our construction workforce to Australia.029

23/08/2019Will the Government rule out more fuel taxes? https://t.co/jmai4STpna027
25/08/2019The Government has been working behind closed doors on a law change to ban petrol and diesel vehicles. Seems like their only policies are taxes or bans. You can’t trust this Government.059
26/08/2019New Zealand’s economy is driven by hardworking small business owners. Every Government should do what it can to reduce costs and uncertainty so that our small businesses have the confidence to take risks, invest, hire new staff and lift wages.011
