Is Labour trying to sneak in Public Funding of Political Parties?

Lucyna over at the FNFFA at her place had this interesting comment

[quote]Now, this was interesting. In the midst of talking about why Labour is pushing through the anti-smacking bill, John Key said that Labour was broke, couldn't afford to fight another election, let alone pay back the $800,000 they owe on the last one, so want the anti-smacking bill through to then push forward public funding for political parties![/quote]

This could be very, very interesting.

Oh yeah, and Pay It Back you thieving scum.?
