Why do MMP supporters lie?

Jonathan Milne should know better, he is supposed to be a reputable journalist, yet he publishes a diatribe in support of MMP that is demonstrably misleading and in one egregious example an outright lie.

Now, the big business and old money who supported the status quo in 1993 have again put their money behind dumping MMP at next month’s referendum.

Really! There is only one organisation registered to oppose MMP in the referendum. To my knowledge and it is pretty well informed there isn;t big money involved in the campaign. If there is big money then where ois the evidence of it? In advertising? No. In letterbox drops? No. In armies of workers? No.

There is no evidence.

On the other side though, the side that Jonathan Milne supports there is vast arrays of cash, organisations and workers, and yet it is Vote for Change that Jonathan Milne maligns.

I’ll tell my loyal readers something for nothing.

If the Labour party, the Greens, the CTU, the NZEI, the PPTA, the Service and Food Workers Union, then PSA, the NZ Diary Workers Union, the NZ Nurses Organisation, the Rail and Maritime Transport Union, the Maritime Union of NZ, and the EPMU think MMP is the best system for New Zealand then we must Vote for Change in the referendum and Vote for Supplementary Member, otherwise we hand control of our parliament to the vested interests of the union movement.
