DON'T VOTE - DON'T VOTE - DON'T VOTE - CONTD

With the voting papers on the asset sales referendum due to arrive in your letter-box today/tomorrow please accept this as a gentle reminder that you should not indulge the collective wet dreams of Messrs Cunliffe, Norman and Peters by voting in this 9 million dollar farce.    

Rather than just 'bin' them (and in the spirit of being helpful) you may wish to consider some alternative options ... please feel free to add to the list:
  • Shred them.    Makes great garden compost.
  • Cut them into 18x12cm rectangles, staple together, upper LH corner, mail to the above mentioned at Parliament Buildings to be used as toilet paper (no stamp required).
  • Do your bit for recycling.
  • Turn them into paper logs/bricks in preparation for next winter.   To see how to go about this click here.  
  • Return them to the Electoral Commission in the envelope supplied marked 'Junk mail not wanted'.
From the positive feedback I have received, both on and off net, I can confidently predict a massive majority for the NO vote.   

Have your say and don't vote.

Now hold on a bit that's been a little hypocritical.

Yah can't in one breath bemoan the use of taxpayer monies for the referendum then turn around and advice further use of taxpayer money for you protest.

Watcher ... as I understand the position, mail to a serving MP is free as in free. NZ Post isn't reimbursed by Parliamentary Services.

Communication with a serving MP is seen as a basic right.

A priceless opportunity to smack the watermelons down, and you're not gonna take it?!

I'm not familiar with the principle but if you are correct there remains a taxpayer expense, possible overtime by staff to handle the influx of shit paper?

Come on Vet, as any decent rightwinger knows, there's no such thing as "free" only "someone else is paying" (or possibly, you're still paying, you just can't see it).

@ciaron, IMO the best smackdown for the watermelons is a resounding 20% turnout.

PM's admitted that the asset sales are wildly unpopular. They've been an abysmal failure for both the government and the poor Kiwi Mums and Dads who they suckered, and the best you can come up with is to denigrate the democratic process. Hilarious.

Strange! most of the feedback on your posts has been for a YES vote.

Hmmmm a bit of the reverse physiology is it?

Whaat the fuck is reverse Phisiology?

No it can't be reverse psychology .
Given his focus on the NO vote instead of his favoured YES he must be trying to reduce the total number of votes cast so he can claim it's less than those who voted for National.

That would make it a parcel and not a letter.

Wrong. Only applies to letters.
