It did occur to me that my suggestion that John Banks must resign might have been a bit premature, and he may, in fact, have a role to play, as a minister.
Right now the Minister for Revenue is Peter Dunne, but I've not seen him do much except mumble platitudes. It occurred to me that John Banks knows a bit about getting the money rolling in. His unsuccessful campaign for the mayoralty of Auckland cost a bit.
Maybe he could redesign the tax system along the lines of his campaign fundraising plan. He didn't fund it by getting lots of little donations from every individual, he targeted a select list of people who he thought could afford, instead. Sounds very efficient.
