Is this another defeat looming for the government?

Labour must be a glutton for punishment this year, either that or David Benson-Pope is bringing his personal proclivities into the caucus and they all want a good paddlin'.

The latest dumb idea being floated is that of the Minister who Holds Helen's Handbag Judith Tizard.

Her and Helen's "bright" idea is to have a resale royalty for artists. The gift that keeps on giving over and over again. It means artists would receive a royalty payment each time an original artwork was resold on the secondary art market.

Gee Whiz, I guess that means that the artist didn't really sell their painting, rather they are leasing it to long tern leasees.

Here's a thought, when something is SOLD it is SOLD….end of story.?
