QUESTION FOR MP
My message is directed at Louise Upston [Taupo MP].
To Louise, I contacted your office on the 26th May 2017.
A response by your staff said you couldn’t reply right then, but would contact me later.
So far, ten days later, this Sunday, I still haven’t had a response, which seems a long time, just to answer my question.
I know you have a column on this paper. So I’ll ask again, in the hope of some success.
What is the benefit in this so called `Lolly scramble` budget, for those older people. The pensioners, the Grandparents, whose taxes they paid, during their 50 years of working lives, enabled schools to stay open, amongst other things, so that your age group and others, could get a decent education, and achieve positions in this life, such as yours?
We bought our houses. We pay our rates, and I believe still pay taxes on our pensions.
But, were we remembered, when all the wealthy people had a share?
I can’t see any mention of such a hand out?
I know you will be in Tokoroa on the 10th June, at the event centre. But dread the thought of interrupting that meeting.
That meeting is very important to those people, so I certainly won’t interrupt.
In anticipation of a response, I am.
A reader accuses the Government of a ‘‘lolly scramble’’ budget.
