The evil Cameron Slater and David Farrar are planning to rob you of MMP

The NZ Herald has appointed Government pollster (he polls on the Friday and presents to Caucus on the Tuesday), propagandist and on-line National Party mouthpiece, David Farrar as their weekly online political commentator minus ANY right of return from any number of left wing bloggers (Chris Trotter, Russell Brown, Idiot Savant or the brilliant Julie Fairey over at The Hand Mirror) and this despite the shocking revelations that he, Cameron Slater and the man behind the corporate coup take over of the ACT Party by Don Brash (courtesy of Alan Gibbs), Simon Lusk are preparing a smear campaign to attack MMP in the hopes First Past the Post can be re-implemented to ensure hard right Government from now on back in NZ.

Anti-MMP plan leaked
A group of National and Act Party activists is preparing to launch a campaign against MMP.

Details of the campaign, to be launched soon in the lead-up to the referendum on MMP on election day in November, have been leaked to the Sunday Star-Times.

Among the campaign's key players is Simon Lusk, who played a major role in Don Brash's leadership coup against Act leader Rodney Hide.

Jordan Williams, the young Wellington lawyer who accompanied Brash on the day he deposed Hide, is being considered for the role of frontman of the campaign.

David Farrar, National's pollster and a well-known right-wing blogger and columnist, is providing strategic advice. Also involved is right-wing blogger Cameron Slater, known as Whale Oil.

Dumping MMP helps straight white rich old men take power in this country, and I just don't think they need any more help than they currently get! MMP allows our diverse country to have better representation and that provides for a better democracy. The whinging old white man voice you get croaking on about how evil MMP is seems more a cultural backlash against being forced to share power with other cultures, genders, ages and sexual orientation. Remember, MMP has only been around for a decade, in the bad old days of First Past The Post, Parliament was a rich white straight old boys club and white men saw themselves as the essence of power, being forced to share that power has caused a cultural backlash by that group towards all the perceived evils of MMP.

Farrar, Slater and company want to drag NZ back into the dark ages, and the mainstream media by constantly providing them unchallenged platforms is playing along with that agenda.

Thank God for Anthony Hubbard's outing of this underhanded black ops campaign. Slater will appear on Citizen A, 7.30pm Stratos Freeview 21 and Sky 89 this week to answer the charges to see if he should stand trial for treason.

Long live MMP!

I think the Herald's been listening to you, Bomber, their website had a column from Mana Party organiser Matt McCarten this morning.

Well done!

Nice try, but that's not balance Graeme! Matt's column on a Sunday is up against Deborah Coddington's column, you remember Deb's right? She of the ACT Party? That is balance, Matt from the left, Deb's from the rabid right (what was her column today - stopping the poor from breeding - y-e-a-h) - however allowing a pollster like Farrar a weekly political column with NO balance is as fair and balanced as Fox News.

You don't want the NZ Herald to be fair and balanced like Fox News do you Graeme?

MMP is a dog of a system, we have been robbed to what actually worked well.

Go anti-MMP camopaign, and out with unelected list MPs.

Where's your evidence that David Farrar polls over the weekend to present the results to the National party caucus on Tuesday?

MMP is the only thing saving NZ from an Oligarchy, USA style. The two party system, that pretends to have night and day policy differences but on closer inspection are EXACTLY THE FUCKING SAME, is what "democracy" looks like in the 21st century. However, I have little hope NZers understand that their freedom to choose parties with GENUINE political difference is at stake. It's going to be John Key and his pit of vipers as far as the eye can see.

I wonder if ACT actually does support an anti-MMP campaign? It would take National to field a half-decent candidate in Epsom to destroy that party completely under MMP. FPP would obliterate ACT utterly, especially as they are not exactly putting younger people with fresh 21st century ideas on their list. Perhaps they unconsciouslu realise they are actually heading their whole circus for retirement.

Which leads me to your "rich old white man" label. I find this to be flagrantly racist. Many supporters of the so-called "right" actually fit within a number of demographics. Can we finally stop blaming white men for every problem in Western society? Especially when some of us are out to improve it in unexpected ways!
