The Herald – Your views on the petrol tax

Amongst them was this pearler;

Cullen and the rest of the greedy little hoodwinkers in government figured out that somehow sheep DNA entered the human inhabitants of New Zealand about 10 years ago. The thieving little gnome has struck again. Petrol is already taxed heavily, but somehow we get hoodwinked into accepting that it should go into other non-transport related government expenditure. What do we do about this extra local fuel tax he has legislated for in the latest budget? Nothing. Like all good sheep we will just be compliant and keep our mouths shut while we all get shorn. What can we do about it? Plenty. At 2.30pm on a Tuesday afternoon sometime very soon, a small group of 5 vehicles could easily form up across the Southern Motorway and not allow any traffic past them on the journey from the Harbour Bridge to Manukau at a speed of say 20kph. At the same time, a similar protest could start at say Manukau, and make its way at 20kph on the Northern Motorway to the Harbour Bridge. You know what, without breaking any laws it could bring a great deal of attention to what we are allowing to have done to us as citizens of this great city. Aucklanders – you are not like the rest of the sheep people in this country. Send a strong message to Wellington that we have not been affected by this terrible virus![/quote]
