McGillicuddy Serious Announces Deregistration

********* Press Release 6 December 1999 *********

McGillicuddy Serious Party Announces Deregistration

The McGillicuddy Serious Party today announced it's imminent deregistration as a political party, and total internal dissolution. The party failed to take the cross benches with a total majority, as had been prophesied to party faithful in the year leading up to the election.

The subsequent internal chaos that has arisen, as a result of the parties stunning failure, make it necessary to now totally remove the party from New Zealand's political scene, in the best interests of both the country, and Clan McGillicuddy, parent group of the party.

The Party has written to the Electoral Commission, stating it's wish to be deregistered on the last stroke before midnight on 31 December 1999, in preparation for the coming apocalypse. It is believed that in ceasing to exist in this form, at this time, the aims of the party will be best served, and will survive without a political body. The concept is best illustrated by the 80's New Zealand film, 'The Quiet Earth', and has become the last hope for uniting the parties internal factions once more, as we stand on the brink of the total collapse of the world itself.

It is believed that the party will be the first ever to deregister under New Zealand law, and encourages all other parties and politicians to abandon central government in a similar fashion, before the end of next year.

Party Members, who had paid up for memberships lasting until the new millenium, will be refunded two (2) cents each, to make up for the one year that was left in the current millenium.

Voters are encouraged to return to their homes, and prepare for the coming Great Leap Backwards, which will now occur without the benefit of a directed McGillicuddy Leadership. We urge everyone to remember that there is enough food to make sure everyone is fed, and that rioting need only be done to secure those consumer items that will cease to be available with the collapse of the modern world.

Jah only to save us now.
