"No Crap" Youth Website Launched

"No Crap" Youth Website Launched

20 October 1999 - For Immediate Release

"NO CRAP" YOUTH WEBSITE LAUNCHED

National has launched a "youth website" very different to the traditional party website.

A group of young National Party members and supporters have put together a "no crap" website, designed by young people for young people. The website at www.nocrap.org.nz is designed to show that politics need not be boring and a "turn off" for young people.

Campaign Director Jeff Grant said "Too often political parties assume that what appeals to middle aged people will also appeal to those under 30. This is not the case which is why National gave permission for some of our younger members and supporters to design their own website without too much interference from the rest of us.

"They have certainly done that in coming up with an entertaining and provocative site.

The site has a "no crap" guide to all 27 registered political parties, some humourous jokes and quotes, information on key policies, a calendar of upcoming events, downloadable games and more. It will be updated regularly.

The team of young people who put together the site came from Auckland, Wellington and Christchurch.

ENDS
