Grey Power Angry And Disillusioned

Published: Thu 21 Jun 2001 02:48 PM
User-Friendly Government Goes Berserk.
Grey Power and all elder New Zealanders helped put the present government
into power.
Their policies were in line with the elderly.
The suggestion of a tax on our homes, which in most cases is all that a
Superannuitant owns, is government suicide.
A rise in GST would be another nail in the coffin.
We played a vital part in putting the present government into power: if they
go ahead with these radical moves we will move Heaven and Earth to put them out.
We expected this from the last government but did not expect this government
to "dump '' on us.
John Jefferson.
Grey Power Federation President NZ.
