So after hours of brain-storming, what do you come up with as the best way to convince National they are wrong.
You get the Maritime Union to put out a press release stating their support for compulsory membership, and demand National drop the bill.
Yes that should do it.
I can’t think of anything more likely to convince any doubting MPs in National they should support the bill, than having the Maritime Union speak out on the virtues of compulsory membership.
It’s like getting Graeme Burton to come out against the three strikes law. Fail.
