Basically Jim thought the law would just apply to “bad people” and not himself. Here’s the real irony:
The decision means all four parties that supported the controversial electoral law changes last year have now fallen foul of the tight new rules on election advertising – mostly for not carrying authorising statements.
There was close to a dozen decisions released on Friday by the Electoral Commission. If I have time later today, I’ll take readers through them one by one. As usual I agree with most of them, but differ with a couple.
