Libz "Staggered" At Worse Electoral Finance Bill

Libz "Staggered" At "Even Worse" Electoral Finance Bill

Party leader Bernard Darnton said today that he was "staggered" that the Electoral Finance Bill had come back from select committee even worse than originally drafted.

"Given how awful the Bill was, it's unbelievable that it has come back from select committee even worse."

"The clock is ticking for freedom of speech in this country. Not even the smallest act of political opposition escapes this Bill's reach. Every political comment made during an election year must carry an authorisation statement. The Clark government's message to anyone who opposes it is, 'We know who you are and we know where you live.'"

Darnton encouraged people to join the march on Parliament this Wednesday. "Anyone, of any political stripe, who believes in open political debate should march on Parliament this Wednesday Show your opposition to this attempted repression."

"The tired and corrupt Clark regime is no longer fit to govern. They want to make it illegal to tell that truth. Tell it on Wednesday."

The march against the Electoral Finance Bill leaves Civic Square in Wellington at 12.30 on Wednesday.
