RNZ’s Insight is hosting a debate on the Electoral System Referendum next Wednesday in Wellington.

It’s an excellent panel, with Jim Bolger, Michael Cullen, Ruth Richardson and Jeanette Fitzsimons, as well as Sandra Grey from the Campaign for MMP and Jordan Williams from Vote for Change. Chaired by independent expert Prof. Nigel Roberts. Should be very informative, and could even be fun!

If you want to be part of the audience, get along to Te Papa’s Sounding’s Theatre at 6pm next Wednesday, October 26 (scheduled to last 1 hour). The debate will be broadcast just after the 8am news on Sunday the 30th, and will be available on the web at

    Heavyweight panel, BTW has anyone actually figured out what VFC stand for, if anything? Makes voting MMP a good option just so you’ll at least know what you’re gettting.

    I’ll be there as long as you know who doesn’t scoff all the sausage rolls and the rubber chickens first.
