The ﬁrst 10,000
I’m not the only one who cares about democracy in New Zealand, and if anyone needed proof that today’s 20-somethings have their heads screwed on right, Mike Earley has blogged about the petition to the Governor-General to veto the bill where election-campaigning theft is legalized.
Mike’s blog shows the moment the petition reached 10,000 signatures (it’s in the 40,000 region now).
Still, if the bill gets through, I think I will be allowed to demand $2 million from the public chest for an election campaign and really outspend these bastards. If they deny me, then I will say, ‘Hang on, it’s legal. Your denying me: it’s not an Asian thing, is it? Come on, did Winston get to you?’ and create constitutional chaos that way, with that slight tinge of racism to make it all believable.
The petition can be found here. Posted by Jack Yan, 21:34

NoteEntries from 2006 to the end of 2009 were done on the Blogger service. As of January 1, 2010, this blog has shifted to a Wordpress installation, with the latest posts here.
With Blogger ceasing to support FTP publishing on May 1, I have decided to turn these older pages in to an archive, so you will no longer be able to enter comments. However, you can comment on entries posted after January 1, 2010.
