Happy now, Hero?

Will you now stop asking questions and sign the constitution?


How does ONE Independant get even 1% of a State Wide vote? When I ran in a State seat, I made money, but can't recall what % vote it was.......way in excess of 1% but that was just in ONE electorate. I would never have got to 1% State wide, I guess.


In the hybrid system I talked about, the independent would run in a single-member constituency.

Here is a link to an explanation of MMP by the NZ Electoral Commission: hopefully they can explain it better than I can.

Presumably someone from the Jacqui Lambie Network, although she'll choose someone who will temporarily fill her place, and then resign to let her come back, once she's renounced citizenship.

This one in very interesting.

Link.

She was the ALP candidate who beat Liberal prawn Wyatt Roy in Longman and Taxi Industry support had a huge impact.

Seems to me there is a smidgen of doubt, but I reckon the High Court will clear her if she is referred. Turnbull...'bullying?'

Huh?

Cut their pensions they gave no right to.

Link.

A case to pay back pensions

He said it was not right that taxpayers were paying pensions to MPs who had failed to follow the law and renounce their dual citizenship.

"I think there is a case for requiring them to pay some of it back," he said.

"There was a case in NSW in the last few weeks where a barrister was struck off for acting without a practising certificate and acting without professional indemnity insurance.

"Well not only was he struck off, but he had to re-pay to all his clients what they'd paid for him for the services that he'd carried out and I don't see a distinction between the two."

Know anyone masochistic enough to give up their money?

And what does the taxi industry have to do with Canberra?

Another case where federal politicians are responding to state issues.
