referendums, extremists and motley fanatics.


I`m not sure what Green MP Sue Bradford has got against Christians.

She is worried that National will " waver to get the Christian vote" if there is a referendum on physical discipline at the election. Just 30,000 signatures are required to force that referendum.

Furthermore, she wants to know how much groups like Family First ( which is headed by a Christian) is paying for newspaper advertisements in the papers during the weekend - the same day that the particular paper concerned, the Sunday Star Times, described Family First as " religious extremists.. gathering libertarians, Act voters and other motley fanatics of that kind.", adding that FF views the referendum as a vehicle to elect Labour, and it was a "significant player at the last election".

Ironic really. Family First didn't exist at the last election and had no hand in constructing the referendum. Yet,at the same time taking their money for advertising, the SST wants to smear Family First purely because another citizen unconnected with any of the groups the editorial mentioned exercised their democratic right to initiate a referendum.

I wouldn't stand for that abuse if I was an Act voter, a libertarian or the director of Family First.

It's enough to make you vote Libertarianz.
