20th December 2010. I grow tired of the carping of retail oligarchs in relation to GST on imported goods . Perhaps if we saw articles from them about bloated supply chains and bloated on costs imposed by bloated bureaucracies they would be more creditable. In the past they have been content to pass these costs on to the consumer, who without any alternatives was forced to cop it sweet.
