Interesting to see National Party blogger David Farrar is inciting his readers to start a political party to bypass/oppose the Electoral Finance Bill. Even more interesting is the fact that his rabid hoard are already calling for him to be its leader.
Here at The Standard we couldn’t agree more – if anyone has the political nous and experience to run such a thing it’s DPF. After all he is one of the founders of Kill the Bill, is probably the most vocal pundit on the issue and, as Tane points out, he’s probably able to get the 500 people he needs to register a party out of his KB readers alone.
So we’re asking you David, if you’re reading this, to put your money where your mouth is (so to speak) and to start this political party you speak of. The only real question is what to call it. I’m sure some of the folk in our comments section can kick-start that brainstorming session…
And if you need a bit more of a head-start here’s the link for registering.
