500,000 Hits For “No Crap” Website

National's humourous and youth orientated "no crap" website has had 500,000 hits in just two weeks.

By comparison the site of US Presidential Contender, John McCain, gets only a bit more than this over a month.

The vast majority of "hits" came after Labour Strategist Pete Hodgson launched the site for National by showing it to all the media. In gratitude for his efforts on behalf of National the "nocrap crew" had started a weekly "pete of the week" award to which Mr Hodgson is the inaugural recipient. The award is given to people for services to the National Party.

Over 1,000 people have e-mailed feedback from the popular website with favourable comments running six to one. A varied selection of them have been placed on the site at http://www.nocrap.org.nz.

Campaign Director Jeff Grant said “We've been delighted with the number of people visiting the site and the great support we have received for it. We can truthfully claim it would be the most visited political site in New Zealand. It's great to see that most New Zealanders do have a sense of humour and can enjoy politics while not overlooking the serious message behind it".

The site is being updated again on Monday with new sections on our most recent political parties, more policies, and the list of best captions for the caption contest
