Mike Moore has continued his attack on the Electoral Finance Bill. (emphasis mine)

The
former Labour Prime Minister has today labelled the piece of
legislation as fatally flawed. He says the restrictions in the
electoral finance law, promised by the Government to be passed next
week in Parliament, are without precedent in the free world.

Mike Moore says the bill is wrong in principle and in substance and will end up doing the opposite of what its authors expected.

The
fresh comments come in response to Invercargill mayor Tim Shadbolt's
promise he will continue to run ads against funding cuts at Southern
Institute of Technology, even if the bill passes and he is breaking the
law.

Mike Moore launched a public attack on Prime Minister Helen Clark earlier this year, comparing her to Robert Muldoon.[/quote]

Good on Mike.
