SOLO-NZ Press Release
Shock! Horror! It's a Roundtable Conspiracy!

By Lindsay Perigo
Created 2007-12-04 09:35

A member of the Business Roundtable is behind the marches against campaign finance reform. The man paying an organiser to run the marches against the Electoral Finance Bill, John Boscawen, is a member of the Business Roundtable, as well as a former Act Party fundraiser, the Greens inform us, breathlessly.

"Well, duh!" says SOLO Principal Lindsay Perigo. "Of course the Business Roundtable is behind the campaign against the fascist EFB! Why shouldn't it be?! Why don't the Greens tell us something we don't know?

"Of course the Roundtable is concerned that its own folk won't be able to donate money to political parties without the donations being publicised. Why shouldn't it be?

"For years the Labour Party got by on compulsory donations from unions to which it was compulsory for workers to belong. That's the way the Labour Party and the Greens like to do things. Labour and the Greens also know that Roundtable members and sympathisers, unlike their own supporters, are not sub-human parasites, losers and child-killers—and they won't contribute to parties like Labour and the Greens who glorify sub-human parasites, losers and child-killers. So Labour and the Greens wish to cash in on the mentality of envy that they have created, exposing (and thereby, they hope, discrediting) the contributions of actual human beings to parties that are slightly more human-friendly than Labour and the Greens.

"The tragedy is, Roundtable, ACT and National and the people behind them won't be up front, because they're weak as weasel-piss. Alan Gibbs, David Richwhite, Doug Myers, Peter Shirtcliffe et al should be shouting their allegiances and their involvement from the rooftops, in their frilly knickers. But they cower, quiver, quail ... and deny. This, alas, is what one has come to expect from people guiltily obsessed with but one aspect of freedom—freedom from gratuitous taxation, intellectually incapable of putting up a case for freedom across the board.

"Fact is, with the violations of freedom of speech and association proposed in this fascist bill, the government has forfeited its moral legitimacy. It's not marches the Roundtable should be behind—it's a coup," Perigo concludes.
