Today Grant Robertson’s books will be laid bare.

Thanks to Ruth Richardson’s Fiscal Responsibility Act, incumbent governments can no longer hide the state of the books before an election. Treasury officials are putting the final touches on the opening of the books.

Grill today, so we don’t pay tomorrow! 

That’s why to coincide with our launching of the official New Zealand Debt Clock, we are holding a sausage sizzle fundraiser at Parliament to help pay back Grant Robertson’s debt [the debt that he has saddled all NZers with]!

So come along today between midday and 1pm to get your sausage and photo in front of the debt clock.  At 1 pm we will be resetting the clock to factor in the new Treasury numbers.

We only need to sell $3 million, 89 thousand dollars worth of sausages to keep the clock still for the hour! 

To pay back the whole debt, we only need to sell 78 and a half billion sausages at $2 each. Laid end-to-end that’s enough sausages to get you to the moon and back 14 times!

So come along, meet the team, bring your gold coin donation because unless we “Stop the Clock” our kids will be paying Grant Robertson’s interest for a very, very, very long time.

See you down at Parliament.
