Is Vote for Change sinking even before it sets sail

It’s interesting to see the disarray that the Vote for Change folk seem to be in. Yesterday’s Kiwiblog post on them has pictures of two crowd-sourced billboards – neither of which are logical*, let alone compelling. And then the comments underneath seem to be running majority in favour of MMP. If Vote for Change can’t muster a simple majority (ha ha) among the Kiwiblog comments you wonder where they are planning to get their support.

$10,000 in prize money to promote something, anything, we’re still not quite sure what yet, so long as it makes sure that some people’s votes are worth more than other people’s.

*e.g. the first billboard seems to have forgotten that Winston Peters came to power and prominence under First Past the Post, then lost his seat under MMP. And, as for the second billboard, surely the concern is supposed to be that tails wag dogs not that dogs wag tails?

  1. …where they are planning to get their support.

    Maybe from the NACToids and Dunne rorting the MMP electoral system to the max in electorates like Epsom and Ohariu at this election in order to discredit it.

  2. FFP is dead and needs to be buried once and for all, it’s a waste of time putting it up for debate, I know Key and Co. support it but are and will be outnumbered by people who nurture real freedom and democracy and not some diseased system that hails from colonial times and injustices.

  3. Point, Toad.

    And I’ve seen a few rabid posts on Nat blogs that re-iterate disinformation, seemingly in a concerted campaign, so somebody is calling shots to confuse the electorate.

    The only consolation seems to be that there is so few of them, with only one idea between them, and as Steve picked up already, not a lot of coherent supporters.
