No Right Turn blog launches petition to repeal the financial veto
In the wake of last night's veto of Sue Moroney's bill to extend paid parental leave, the No Right Turn blog has launched a petition to repeal the veto from parliament's Standing Orders.
"The veto is an archaic and unconstitutional relic of English feudalism," said blogger Idiot/Savant. "It has no place in our modern, democratic MMP constitution. It should go".
The petition is being run through the ActionStation platform. At the end of the campaign it will be presented to Parliament, and hopefully to the Standing Orders Committee. It can be signed here:
