Turkeys Vote For Christmas

A Bill to reduce Parliament to 100 members has passed its first hurdle. NZ First's Barbara Stewart was supported 61/59. Our resident democrats, Labour (50), Greens (6) and United Future (3) were agin its introduction.

Tanczos said it would lead to an unrepresentative Parliament - certainly I agree dope smokers would struggle to make it. Not sure society goes backwards at that point. He cited two lawyers; a Lab and a Nat who made an 'immeasurable contribution legislation at the select committee stage." Well Nandor - best you promote a few lawyers up your list if they are so necessary.
