Cactus Kate asks why ACT MPs are going against the party principles in doing a shabby back room deal with Simon Power?
She even posts a video of Trevor Mallard to show that even the opposition knows how shabby this affront to democracy is.
I don’t think the largest issue is one of list MP’s or MMP as both David and Whaleoil have opined, but more asking ACT MP’s to explain if they vote against the Party Principles, why they have done so.
Heather Roy and Roger Douglas for example were actively pushing and fronting the Freedom of Association Bill (VSM Bill) so really cannot now go and support something that erodes arguably a far larger right or freedom than being forced to join a Student Union for the few years a person is subject to University rule. Hilary Calvert’s proposed actions don’t make any sense at all. Not uncommon as I have opined in previous posts, but still needing explanation.
Have Roy and Calvert corruptly sidestepped their own and their parties principles for some shabby promises from a third rate small town flea lawyer?
One can only imagine what Simon Power promised a brothel owning trust fund baby from Dunedin.
