The great big list of John Key’s big fat lies

As Key,  is apparently swanning off with his family to Hawaii tomorrow following his shock resignation, likely deserting the ship he’s helped sink, let’s reflect on our ‘esteemed’ leader’s honesty or lack thereof for the past terms we’ve had him installed with his wrecking ball. He wasn’t a banker for nothing. Our post war leaders will be turning in their graves.

“Yep, its that time again when readers are reminded of some of the lies John Key told in the lead-up to and in the seven years since his National Ltd™ came to power.  No doubt there will be a bunch more lies to be added later today when John Key presents his “State Of The Nation” address and, in doing so, further bolsters his legacy as the most dishonest Prime Minister New Zealand has ever had. So, from the top . . .

Every year the IRD identifies about $1.2 BILLION in fraud committed by NZ business people … and Welfare fraud? … $30 million

“Every year the IRD identifies about $1.2 BILLION [fraud]committed by NZ business people .
Yes..EVERY year.
It discovers around $30 million in welfare fraud (tiny by comparison)
Yet , as Dr Marriott discovered – welfare fraudsters are far more likely to be sent to prison than white collar criminals.” Remember our PM is a banker … our country has been heisted by corporate money interests & our welfare state is seriously in demise, thanks to the aforementioned!”

Welfare fraudsters are more likely to be sent to prison than white collar criminals who account for far more dollars lost than the former

Tax Fraud Vs Welfare Fraud
I’m on the board of the Bruce Jesson Foundation which supports investigative journalism and each year funds a lecture on some aspect of society.
This year’s lecture was by Dr Lisa Marriott from Victoria University Business School on her investigation into how and why white collar tax fraud is treated far more leniently than welfare fraud.

The size of the problem?

Why are those less advantaged in New Zealand society treated differently from those who are in relatively privileged positions? Why are white-collar tax evaders treated differently to welfare fraudsters? In the Annual Jesson Lecture in Politics for 2016, Dr Lisa Marriott considers the circumstances where this occurs, aiming to highlight and challenge issues of equity, privilege, and the construction of crime and criminals in New Zealand.
