Image result for tax


1. a sum of money demanded by a government for its support or for specific facilities 
    or services, levied upon incomes, property, sales, etc.

2. a burdensome charge, obligation, duty, or demand.


So you you see I have underlined one word in the definition of tax. It is money demanded by Govt.

I mention this because just yesterday the Govt. released figures showing New Zealand Inc had $3.7 Billion left over after costs (more taxes)were taken away from revenue (even more taxes) for the preceding year.

Now what you have is a struggle of ideas from 2 main camps. (as well as some others that have Contact Energy holders laughing) One; National, that would kinda be plain sailing - still overspending our tax. Two; Labour that would introduce a wealth of taxes, water, capital gains and a whole host of others just to pay for the extra spending they have promised.

What about us?

The demands, (there's that word again) that are placed upon the workers in this country increasingly get more and more each and every year. 

AND it has to stop.

From the individual who earns the minimum wage right up to those who pay the most tax and will pay more under Jacinda Adern.

We want our ***ken money back.

We earnt it. We should decide where it will go.

So when you go to vote in about 4 weeks time. Think about it.

Don't be so selfish and go after the party the promises you the most - they probably wont deliver - Especially if they are left of centre. 

Vote for somebody that will give as much of your money back as possible. 

It is after all your money.

Demand it.

Share Price Alert: Contact Energy 11

If you ignored a buy in Nov last year and then again in Feb 2017 here I am telling you that Contact Energy Ltd [CEN.NZX] is a buy on today's market.


Because of certainty.

Certainty of dividends being returned to you. The shareholder.

Next year we are likely to see a whopping 23% increase in div's and further increases as the years drag on.


Contact Energy is no longer building extra capacity (they are likely too in the future but that looks to be five years off - at least).

So the capital that was going to infrastructure can now go to the (some would say long suffering - depending on where you bought your CEN shares and for how much - shareholder).

Its our turn now.

Buy CEN on weakness (there bound to be some) up to $6 or where you feel comfortable.

At current prices it is paying almost 6% PA.

Good luck.

What is it with Metiria Turei and her wanton lust for power at all costs?

Well one only has to look slightly down the hallway towards a wall of shiny teeth to see the answer to that.

Jacinda Adern is simply just flaky. Shes processed, manufactured and young, too young to run a country. For fucks sake shes the spend, spend, spend, spend, spend.... leader whereas Helen Clarke was the spend, spend spend leader.

Jacinda has not finished yet. She will spend your money like it was printed.

When Turei stole money and then committed electoral fraud that was one thing. To then come out and defend her position in such a bald faced way is simply deigning the obvious.

She has ripped off you, me and all the other hard working kiwis who see the benefit as a hand up. NOT a handout for as long as you need it'

She has also taken a lot of support with her but she undeniably has damaged the Green brand.

The majority of her support is now looking for a place to put their votes.

May I suggest David Seymour . A man with obvious talent.

Share Investor Bows out of the WHS

Image result for the warehouse nz in comics

Well they are taking their bloody time about it. But finally The Warehouse Group Ltd [WHS.NZX] are selling their financial services unit.

They shouldn't have bought it in the first place.

Seeing they are doing this and it is going to take "4-5 weeks" the rest of what they need to do to stop their ship from sinking will probably take 2 -3 years. They simply don't have this luxury of time.

But they cant see this.

As a result I ditched my meagre holding of 100 shares for $2.28.

It was only meant as a means to cause trouble but I don't wanna do that anymore.

So I'm gone.

The Warehouse will be history as well, Foodstuffs have written down their shareholding to zero. I suspect the other major shareholders have as well.

You too?
