OPINION: “All I want for Christmas,” a festive National MP told me at the press gallery party back on December 19, “is a capital gains tax.”

As strange as it may sound, it was not a surprise.

Another senior National MP said earlier on the same day that they were “praying” for a capital gains tax to be put before Parliament in 2019.

To be clear, National most certainly does not want a capital gains tax.
