National’s Confused Blogger Spreads Nonsense





PRESS RELEASE

Rt. Hon Winston Peters Leader NZ First

November 25 2011


National’s Confused Blogger Spreads Nonsense with Dirty Tricks

Rt Hon Winston Peters says the National Party’s paid blogger David Farrar is spreading confusion about New Zealand First on the last day of the election campaign at the behest of politicians who should know better.

Farrar has written a blog about New Zealand First claiming it is an incorporated society when in fact it is a registered political party. An incorporated society simply holds and protects the name “New Zealand First”, which has been the case since 1993.

“All Mr Farrar had to do was contact the party secretary and this would have been explained. He could also have checked with the Electoral Commission.

Or he could have taken sound legal advice

“It is unfortunate that National’s paid bloggers have to resort to spreading confusion and dirty tricks instead of talking about the issues. They must be extremely getting desperate,” says Mr Peters.
