National has announced today that when they win the election they will can the highly partisan electoral law panel that Labour and the Greens stacked so they can push for state funding of political parties.
This is as it should be.
I vehemently oppose state funding of political parties. If you can’t convince punters on the street of the merits of your policies and they don’t vote with their pockets then tough shit, get out of the game or get better policies.
Further Labour has egregiously breached long-standing traditions in appointing their lackies to this commission without consulting National.
