David Round – What?

 and then states…

I tell a lie when I say that no- one is protesting against the bill. In Christchurch, about 200 people demonstrated last Wednesday. It was a quiet and civilised protest. Too quiet, perhaps. Decency can be a disadvantage. To overcome our enemies – this is life’s tragedy – we must become like them.

I checked that date and this article was written after the Auckland protest of 5000 people. Does he not remember the other Auckland protest of 2000 people and the small but vocal Wellington protest.

 He also makes assumptions that protests should take the same shape in form as they did 20 odd years ago.  Well we have techonology now and if you want to see protests have a look

and then google Electoral Finance Bill and see what you come up with.
