Bob Jones has had a gutsful

He voted National in 1981, three years later he got 12.4% of the vote - but no seats - with the New Zealand Party - and now that he knocked off Rob Muldoon, he wants to knock off Helen Clark. He is going to vote National for the first time since 1981.

Jones has had a gutsful of the undemocratic Electoral Finance Act. He thinking of testing it with an ad campaign against the Government.
This is the most despicable thing I think I have seen in my lifetime in this country, I really do, certainly by any Government... this overwhelms me. I cannot believe it happened.

Jones is sniffing around for policy-for-sale opportunities leke everyone else.

The EFA doesn't stop anyone spending millions to communicate their views. What you can't do is be dishonest or tell people who to vote for.

If I had a $1million, I could legally spend it tomorrow telling everyone in NZ what I think should be done about the price of oil. My views. Free to speak.

At an extremely entertaining dinner earlier this week, when questioned on his 'plan to vote National', Sir Bob excused his foible, apparently, he was drunk.
