In a major poke in the eye for the small but loud mouthed 'broken election promises' brigade, justice minister Power has announced details of proposals for a series of referenda on the future of MMP. The proposals appear to have met favour with the county's leading political journos and with the Labour Party.
The details have been well covered elsewhere so it remains only for Adolf to remark that he will be agitating for the retention of MMP, albeit with some major structural adjustments to eliminate mischievous outfits such as Jamdertin's little labour party. In addition, I'd support Homepaddock's suggestions for an increase in the number of registered members required for recognition of a political party. Currently 500, the thresh hold is too low and should be increased to at least 1,000.
Let's face it, if you put it up to 2,000 you might embarrass the Labour Party.
