The focus groups must be squealing

Fuel hikes spur Government to look at pricing – 05 May 2008 – NZ Herald: New Zealand National news

Clark’s much vaunted focus groups must be squealing like pigs at a slaughterhouse over fuel. Why do I say this?

Well all of a sudden the government is going to pull its thumb out of their collective arses and look at fuel pricing. Might I hazard to suggest to perhaps the only competent minister in this government that instead of looking at fuel companies she draws a bead on Michael Cullen who through increased fuel prices is rapaciously nicking even more cash through the taxes levied on fuel.

From my recollection something 48% of the price of fuel is made up from varios taxes the largest being excise tax.
