"We’ll Fight On Vow GST Campaigners"
Senator Alan Breckon
THE battle for GST exemptions has been lost after a day and half of debate – but supporters in the States say that the war is far from over.
Senator Alan Breckon’s proposal for exemptions, backed by the Senior Citizens Association, was defeated by 29 votes to 22, with two abstentions – by St Lawrence Constable Deidre Mezbourian and Social Security Minister Ian Gorst .
With the sales tax about to go up from 3% to 5% in a fortnight, States Members have voted to keep the tax simple and have rejected UK-style exemptions.
But Members have made it clear that the fight for exemptions will continue, and a proposal exempting fresh and healthy food is likely to come to the States before the October election.
"Those who benefit
from any societal mechanism
rarely wish to understand
especially if it appears
to grant them
power, control or authority
over their fellow man and
understanding that mechanism
would limit, diminish or remove
power, control or authority.
They simply do not want to know. Because… It is far easier to Ignorantly Control Others than it is to Wisely Control Yourself."
