Labour votes to repeal their own law

In 2007 Labour changed the bail law to make it easier for people to get bail, even if they had previously offended while on bail.

National pledged to repeal this, and did so a few minutes ago.

But here is the interesting thing – Labour voted to repeal their own law – it passed 106-7. Now that’s a flip-flop.

Phil Goff is very worried about Labour being seen as soft on law & order. I suspect he will push Labour to vote for most of National’s changes to parole and bail.
