Kill the Bill

2 comments | 10:41 pm | top |
Around 6,000 Aucklanders marched down Queen Street in Auckland yesterday to show their anger at the Government's arrogance in ignoring the Human Rights commission and shoving through their draconian so called "Electoral Finance Bill".

It is not an Electoral Finance Bill - it is a "you can't say that about the Government bill", essentially shutting down freedom of speech in the year leading up to the election.

This new law will increase the difficulty for challengers (the opposition, minor parties) to the current Government, as the Government has a strong "brand name" as well as a lot of money.

Strange isn't it, that they intend to pass this bill into law less than 3 weeks from when it will have effect!
