An Electoral Finance Bill Supporter
A supporter of the Electoral Finance Bill writes to the NZ Herald. His name is Peter Davis. He works for the Sociology Department in Auckland University. He compares freedom of speech restrictions to advertising restrictions for tobacco advertising,saying limits on the rights to " purchase" speech are justified in the Electoral Finance Bill in the name of protecting democracy Ha!
Of course he doesn't mention how it curtails political opinion that is not bought through advertising, because it may annoy his wife - who so happens to be Prime Minister Helen Clark. Perhaps he`ll have a snuggle with Miss Clark over a microwaved cuppa tea
Then again, perhaps he doesnt like microwaved tea, and Miss Clark will kick up a stink, go to the World Cup netball final tonight, and we`ll LOSE.. Hat tip
UPDATE We lost. Anybody know if Dear Leader was there to cast her spell? Well, she had to be there, as least she wasnt here as well.
