PSA registers as a third party
The PSA has applied to register as a third party under the Electoral Finance Act - an act that means registered parties can spend more money campaigning for or against a political party.
Hang on.... isn't the PSA supposed to be politically neutral? The excuse to register is that the PSA is not supporting any political party, they just need to be allowed to promote political ideas. Labour's ideas, that is.
But they won't be promoting political ideas, they will be opposing National's political ideas with state-funded member levies, and if they were truly neutral there would be no need to register.
