In a Liberal Party ad posted online this week I am quoted as saying, 'I think my colleagues, like me, are looking forward to the tax which is coming on 1 July.'

The incorrect transcribing in the Liberal Party ad is not an accident. The ad is clearly aimed at deceiving the viewer. The Liberal Party operative who transcribed my words would have heard the next sentence: 'Taxes on big polluters going up; taxes on workers—'
