David Farrar tears apart Annette King’s pathetic defence of the draconian Electoral Finance Bill.

This question from Bill English shows just how draconian the bill actually is and why we say that it is worse than before.
[quote]Hon Bill English: Is the Minister aware that if someone goes *door-knocking down a street, knocking on doors and saying: ?Vote National.?, then under her law that action constitutes the publication of an election advertisement, and therefore such persons constitute a promoters under the law; and if those persons are promoters, then when they knock on a door, they will have to give their name and address to the person they are addressing, present the authorisation by the financial agent for the party for which they are canvassing, and then say: ?Good morning.??[/quote]

And includes this vide of question time.
