In an effort to gain ‘street cred’ with the business community over plans by her government to introduce a capital gains tax she claimed she … “had experience in running small businesses, having run a small NGO and worked in small businesses ”
However, an OIA to the PM’s Office about these claims discovered that her ‘small businesses experience’ was not that extensive.
According to the answers: ‘The Prime Minister was the President of international political youth organisation IUSY. The small businesses the Prime Minister worked at were a fish and chip shop in Morrinsville and a gift shop. She has also worked at a supermarket’.
Oh dear her only business experience is an after-school job at the local chippy and supermarket.
