A recent pledge to snuff out the habit entirely by 2025.

This is what confuses me the most. Why would it take this long for New Zealand to completely kick this habit? It took a proposed 4-5 years for new Zealand to redevelop its broadband or connectivity infrastructure.

We had an ingrained habit a certain "give way process" which has been proposed this year and has not taken 12-13 years for kiwi's to get used to.

Why are our taxes aiming for something that the current government cannot promise? We cannot predict National will be leading our government in the upcoming years. Are our taxes going to be impacted as of now?

I perhaps overlooked the title, and the proposed date of prohibition.

I confess to being completely confused by that last post. Try as I may, I just can't make sense of it.
