We Come to Bury Nanny, Not to Praise Her!

Libertarianz Spokesman Peter Cresswell says he is looking forward with relish to tomorrow's 'Enough is Enough' March down Auckland's Queen Street.

"This is our chance to tell the Nanny State politicians - of every stripe - that we've had enough," he says. "Enough of them, of their corruption, of their lies, of their broken promises and their insufferable bullying; enough of the whole bankrupt political game they have been playing for so long with our money, and our forbearance."

"Enough is truly enough. Tomorrow at midday it's my chance to tell Nanny: 'It's my life! It's my money! Take away your cloying chains!"

"I invite anybody with the necessary gumption to be there to do the same!"

(Note: Marchers should assemble at midday, Beresford Square, corner of Pitt and Beresford Streets. March will then head down Queen St for Aotea Square.)
