Sith laugh evilly at Libertarianz

Press release in response to http://www.scoop.co.nz/stories/PO1102/S00082/jedi-high-council-statement-challenged.htm

The Libertarianz party of New Zealand is destined to be one of mediocrity and will never truly know the power of the Dark Side, the New Zealand Sith Conclave said today.

"By seeking an alliance with the Jedi Council the Libertarianz have confirmed their weakness," Sith Lord Darth Vader said.

"We care not for freedom of speech, freedom of religious choice and the need for government to respect the personal beliefs of New Zealanders — we believe only in power.

"By not having any power, whatsoever, at all, in New Zealand politics we are sure that the Libertarianz are not practitioners of either side of the force.

'The Sith Conclave was invited to their AGM last year. I have never seen a more wretched hive of scum and villany.

Mr Vader was quick to point out that the Sith Conclave is very active in New Zealand politics.

"The Sith are great. While we don't generally operate in the open, I think it is safe to lay claim to destroying the rebel Alliance in 2002.

"We're also lucky that not all of the Brash emails were leaked — that could've been very embarassing," Mr Vader chuckled.

Mr Vader was quick to point out that he was not Libertarianz Leader, Richard McGrath's father.

Gordon Campbell: On The Gun Buy-Back Scheme

Do gun amnesties and buy-backs save lives? Since it’s always difficult to exclude all of the socio-economic factors that may be operating in parallel, the die-hard denialists in the gun lobby will always be able to find a bit of wiggle room.

Yet when taken in tandem with the actions already taken by the Ardern government to outlaw rapid fire rifles and shotguns, there is ample reason to conclude that the buy-back and amnesty scheme announced this morning will indeed save lives in New Zealand. More>>
