This petition relates to Auckland, but remember that’s a third of NZ’s economy.
“New Zealanders are paying more at the petrol pump than ever before at a time of rising cost of living.
“Aucklanders are paying an additional 11.5c per litre on petrol due to the Government’s Auckland Regional Fuel Tax which was imposed in 2018.
“Despite the Government telling New Zealanders this money was urgently required to invest in Auckland’s transport network, less than half the $515 million raised from this tax has been spent.
“$285 million is simply sitting in a Government bank account unspent.
“Aucklanders are being fleeced at the petrol pump by a Government which is good at taking money off you, but fails to deliver on its promises.
“Please sign National’s petition calling on the Government to remove the Auckland Regional Fuel Tax to help provide relief at the petrol pump at a time of rapidly rising costs.“
This was a French trucker protest against high fuel prices in 2018. If this happened here you could imagine Comrade Jacinda’s bleating: “They are not us; they are not representative of New Zealanders; they have unacceptable ideas.” Her paid propagandist Stuff, Newshub, TV One etc. would chime in: “They’re right-wing extremists; Islamophobes; homophobes, Russian agents; QAnoners; they’re violent; they’re filthy” etc. After a day Comrade Great Dear Leader would say: “We’re not talking to you, now go home, you’ve made your point.” The next day in would come the Coster Mob with helicopters, tear gas, pepper spray and all manner of other weapons with which to beat them up.

National are a part of the problem not the solution.
NZ has more oil than the North Sea.
Norway has a sovereign fund of circa one million dollars. The world’s largest.

Waikanae Watch, thankyou always for your ongoing publishing of issues very important to New Zealanders. But my warning re the above article is: HAVE NOTHING TO DO WITH ANYTHING FROM THE NATIONAL PARTY. I am not forgetting an article from Redbaiter March 5, on Gab, entitled “Christopher Luxon: 12 questions the media has not asked.” These included questions about Luxon’s exclusive invite to a dinner in NZ with Obama in 2018, “Why did such a far left politician [Obama] want to speak with you when you weren’t even in politics at the time?” Luxon’s favourite politician is Obama apparently – dubious – Luxon’s connections with Epstein’s friend Bill Gates. Luxon sent airline executives to conferences arranged by Bill Gates and Luxon himself also participated. Does Luxon have any regard for the global political plan advanced by Klaus Schwab and the WEF? You bet. Stands to reason – you have to be part of the club to get on in the political world.
Apart from the fact the suggestion that a drop in the price of petrol is ridiculous, and not going to solve anything in this country presently being governed by corrupt, lying, pieces of work.
Mark my words people, BEWARE, as I have said before, Luxon is a snake in the grass, being set up by the globalists to replace Ardern, and he will be a far worse enemy than what we have sitting in the Beehive at the moment. Have NOTHING to do with anything from this party that calls itself “National.” Do not be deceived!

Yes, removing the regional fuel tax in itself won’t make a significant difference to the price at the pump. Here in Kapiti we get better prices elsewhere in the Wellington and Manawatu regions and we have never got a straight answer as to why pump prices here are the highest. But this tax is just another example of this government’s love of taxation to fund a massive inefficient bureaucracy and give huge amounts of money to their favored people.
Because we reproduce media releases from the opposition parties doesn’t mean we favour anyone of them in particular; David Seymour and ACT have actually been a bigger disappointment than National, but they’ve finally called for the end of the vax mandates (after many months of persuasion). The role of opposition parties is to scrutinize, criticize and propose alternatives — it should not matter which or who they come from. The Jacinda regime’s paid Mainstream Media slavishly promote her government with its bad attitudes and policies — and they give opposition media releases minimal coverage. We try to balance that.
Robin correct me if I am wrong, but it seems that Luxon is an acolyte of John Key. Now Key is great mates with Obama and those other Democrats: Clinton et al plus Gates, Epstein. Did Key ever fly on the Lolita Express to Epstein’s Caribbean island? He certainly had some strange habits such the fetish of pulling young women’s pony tails.
I have always wondered why Key resigned as prime minister so abruptly straight after Hillary Clinton lost the presidential election in 2016 when a general election was due in less than a year. He obviously didn’t care much for the National party.

Wow, interesting observations Antigone and valid. Thankyou for that. Yes, I have seen somewhere indications that Key and Luxon had some kind of special relationship. Yes, we always wondered why Key resigned so abruptly – had not picked up that it was straight after Clinton’s defeat by President Donald Trump. If that is not significant! Key – another globalist puppet? I wonder who comprises the Khazarian Jews who are supposed to be represented in New Zealand.
I agree with all of the above. The making of a grand coalition to force in the NWO. If the Trumpeter had not beaten Hillary and Obama all would have been in place. What was the real reason Marsden point was shut down? Luxton get off the grass! Auckland is not New Zealand. The tax must come off for all of the country. Primary production costs are becoming stratispheric. I bet you will still order a real steak.
