If you’ve got any asset sales petitions hanging about, quickly send them in to the address on the bottom (Roy Reid, PO Box 27110, Wellington 6141). The Keep Our Assets coalition are shortly to send in the petition for the Electoral Commission to start verifying the 350,000-odd names they have.
Of course the more names the better as well! So why not download the petition, and go out and grab a few more names this weekend too. Don’t forget to send them in on Monday! Quite a lot of names are likely to be unable to be read or matched up with the electoral roll (people move and don’t update their details…), and we want to make sure we cross the 310,000 voter hurdle at the first try. Not to mention the more signatures, the louder message it sends to National about how unpopular their asset sales programme is!
