@NewstalkZB @PouTepou Nope. He is incompetent. The deputy pm should be either Grant Robertson or Andrew Little.
@dairymanNZ No, but grant Robertson has promised a tax increase & water reform

Ardern might've ruled out a CGT and the Greens' wealth tax, but she hasn't ruled out a land tax. I just wish Grant Robertson stopped referring to me as Winkie.

@ajthompson13 Perhaps theres a formula for working out how much (on average)people pay in gst..even though it’s not direct income tax....a high percentage of people’s total expenditure would incur gst...which is effectively part of their total tax paid...I bet grant Robertson has a formula😉😜

@zenpeacekeeper @grantrobertson1 I really like Grant Robertson. Glad he spoke about the WEAG as a blueprint as this is something I was disappointed hadn’t been actioned prior, possibly due to money constraints which hopefully will be eased from here on. Nearly 40 years late but now is better than in the future.

@MarkHubbard33 @stew_rachel The point was to get Labour into an absolute majority to avoid having to appease the Greens. Grant Robertson painted a very centrist picture of the next term under Labour and it worked, so we'll see how that pans out.
@_DanielleTay Yup, I have nothing against Kelvin Davis it's just that Grant Robertson has been really great with getting across the financial ramifications of the Covid19 pandemic & he hasn't shied away from the tough questions & he's definitely no loose canon. Fiscally responsible I'd say.
@frankritchie He is bereft of class and humility and now Grant Robertson has defended Kelvin. The shape of things to come - nasty and poor behaviour will be acceptable and tolerated at senior levels in the @nzlabour party. Hardly a shining example to their newbies.
David Clark might be best mates w Grant Robertson - but given pressure on economy & employment - tho he might have ambition to be given a finance portfolio, a theologian isn’t person for such a job. If he is given any ministerial role, esp finance - it’ll be a gift to Opposition
Wait, where is this "Kelvin Davis will be Deputy PM" coming from? Surely it'll be Grant Robertson?
My thoughts about portfolios: Grant Robertson is safe in Finance; Chris Hipkins can keep Education. Someone new for Health. Caramel needs to go in Social Development. Maybe David Parker can have Foreign Affairs. Not sure about Defence. Could Megan Woods have Environment?
Robertson says he might go vegan if Garner keeps promise to go plant-based https://t.co/MqfxUIYEEe

@StatesmanWorld @NewStatesman @JeremyCliffe That's what we're telling her down here too. Ardern's instincts (and Grant Robertson Finance Minister) are more conservative and gradual than many of their party activists. But I think world events are forcing radical change on NZ. I'd rather Ardern led us through than a neo-Nazi
@DavidGr07837209 @jillychapman @RobertGEdge Yes. It may not be a full coalition, although I know senior Greens want Cabinet portfolios. Big stumbling block is wealth tax: Greens say yes, Labour says no. There may be another form of agreement - Grant Robertson and David Parker have experience negotiating and managing these.

@Proggie76 Should be Grant Robertson as deputy Prime Minister, this man’s speech last night was vile and disgusting.
@un_wellington Doesn't really matter. Grant Robertson has control of the purse strings anyway. David Parker for Minister of Foreign Affairs?
Finance Minister Grant Robertson has repeatedly said he won’t put a target on debt, and will aim to get debt down as quickly as possible, but not at the expense of the public services Labour deems important. Translates into the paying down the debt will be left for a later time.
@Rachelgpeters As long as it is NOT Kelvin Davis, I don't mind too much. Grant Robertson has his hands full as Minister of Finance. If David Parker gets it, someone else may have to pick up the Environment - both are big portfolio's; Megan Woods?
@Rachelgpeters My thoughts: Finance and DPM Grant Robertson, Health Chris Hipkins, Education Trevor Mallard, Economy and Building Megan Woods, Foreign Affairs David Parker, Tourism Kelvin Davis, Defence David Clark, others will be shuffled around 1/2
@Joe_Sothcott True, I only left him out because Finance Minister is a big job and an important one over the next few years. But yes Grant Robertson.
