The campaign continues

Many people will have seen ads on Sunday by John Boscawen continuing his campaign against the Finance Act. As I have said, I doubt there will be a vote against repealing it after the election, and then work could commence in good on a replacement which not only is clearer, but doesn’t have the restrictions on every-day advocacy and such low limits.

The NZPA database has 716 articles on the Finance Act since 1 January. Almost without exception, they are all negative.

Even worse is the hypocrisy since then of Peters and Clark, who claim it was all about stopping secret donations. That wasn’t even in the original bill, and since it got passed we have learnt a lot about how are the masters of the secret donations.
