National decides it can cope with satire

Nats decide they can cope with satire – Newstalk ZB

National has decided to back a more lenient approach to the rules around TV footage from Parliament.

Last week they joined the sooks from Labour and the lickspittles to ban any footage which satirised or denigrated them.

But today leader John Key has announced his party will back a re-visit of the rules.

Mr Key says National wants to have grater transparency, rather than less. He says National MPs are not so precious that they cannot accept from time to time, someone will “take the mickey” out of them.

Good stuff.
