(NZ Politics) Was Salute to Lindsay Mitchell - now, Bloody ACT
Submitted by Mark Hubbard on Wed, 2008-03-12 00:56
I know, an unusual heading for a post in here, but I've been reading Lindsay's (ACT) blog for a long time, and agree with her on probably 90% of content. And because of that, I reckon she must be feeling pretty betrayed by ACT today.
My post to her blog over lunch, (her entry was to slam the Speaker's Tour junket):
"Lindsay, I love your blog, and have a huge amount of respect for you, but if you want to know why I won't be voting ACT anymore, then yet another reason has been printed in The Press this morning, quote:
"ACT leader Rodney Hide, who joined a taxpayer-funded jaunt to South America, said such trips were all about building relationship overseas."
From your own post here, I know we both see that for the BS it is. You are right, Rodney is way out of order.
You say on another post below that you want to be thought of as a liberal, not right wing, well, assuming you're talking classic liberal, then you're in the wrong party, you should be looking at Libertarianz: that's the party with my vote from this election on. I've had a gutsful of all the non-Left parties, including ACT, and am voting on principle from this point on."
