National's tactics delay final vote on election bill – National's delaying tactics have stalled the final debate on the Electoral Finance Bill until next Thursday.

Labour are becoming hysterical as they start to run out of parliamentary time to pass the Electoral Finance Bill. Not only that the delaying tactics of National have put Jim Anderton's pet law the banning of BZP in jeopardy, unless of course Labour takes urgency to ram them all home.
Annette King is very angry because National is "filibustering". Newsflash Annette, that is what oppositions are supposed to do, to make life hard for the Government. The free ride is over, you are being held to account. Take another sip from the poison chalice that is the Electoral Finance Bill.¬†
