No Crap Is Back

Thursday 27th June 2002

The controversial youth political website, www.nocrap.org.nz, has been relaunched.

"Many young people are cynical and bored with politics. This website aims to show that politics is not necessarily boring, and that some parties do have a sense of humour," says spokesperson Jamie Simpson.

The site was built by a group of young people from around the country who believe that National is the best choice this election.

"The internet is one of the most effective ways to reach people and get National's point of view across. Last election the site registered over a million hits, so we're hoping to repeat that."

The entertaining and provocative site features a guide to all political parties, jokes, satire, competitions, photos and interactive polls. It will be updated weekly with new content every week until the election.
