National Shows Smart Politics Reducing Taxation on Petrol

In a clever move that can only make Labour look mean and churlish National has said, in Government, it will reduce the excise tax on petrol from October 1. This is smart politics - National knows it has room to manoevre with the windfall from increased GST on rising fuel prices and as with its income tax cut programme is offering immediate relief.

Cullen can hardly say the windfall should not be returned to the hard pressed motorist.
