Nice One Sue

Nice One Sue


Conservative Party Leader Colin Craig is congratulating Sue Bradford on her resignation from the Mana Party.

“Whilst Sue’s politics and the causes she has championed are an absolute anathema to us, we appreciate her principled stand on the internet party and Mana’s surrender to big money,” says Colin Craig.

“Being true to your principles is a rare thing in politics nowadays. When Hone sells out for electronic beads and blankets, and Laila Haire is working for a German multi-millionaire wanted on criminal charges; when John Key campaigns against carbon tax, but once elected introduces the ETS; when Key says he could never work with Winston, but changes his mind; when Russell Norman abandons his party’s principle of respectful engagement and begins sledging his opponent; it’s easy to see how rare it is for someone to stand by their principles.”

“Sue’s principled stand is worthy of appreciation, and that’s why we have an advertisement in tomorrow’s paper.”

Election Day: Make Sure You're A Part Of It!

Saturday 20 September, is election day, and New Zealanders’ last chance to have a say on who leads the country for the next three years.

“The people and parties we elect tomorrow will be making the decisions that affect us, our families and our communities,” says Robert Peden, Chief Electoral Officer. “It doesn’t get much more important than that, and we need all New Zealanders to use their voice and vote.”

Voting places will be open from 9.00am until 7.00pm on election day. The busiest time at voting places is usually 9.00am - 11.00am.

“Take your EasyVote card with you when you go to vote, as it will make voting faster and easier, and vote close to home if you can. But don’t worry if you forget your card, or didn’t receive one, because as long as you are enrolled to vote, your voice will be heard,” says Mr Peden. More>>
