The Green party has launched a campaign to encourage people to vote no in the referendum on whether or not a minority shareholding in a few state owned assets should be sold.
They’ve put up billboards around Auckland and I’m wondering if there’s a parliamentary crest on them.
If not the party is funding them, if there is a crest we are through parliamentary services.
The Greens and Labour turned what was supposed to be a citizens’ initiated referendum into a politicians’ initiated one.
Labour has gone quiet on the referendum, perhaps realising that the public has no appetite for wasting around $9 million on a referendum which will have absolutely no impact on the policy.
But the Greens are continuing to use the issue to keep their profile up.
Enough public money has already been wasted, I’d hate to think we’re paying for the billboards too.
