Bill & Ben reject close coalition with Aunty Helen

If the "undecided/swinging" voters do actually manage to make it to the polling booths this year, I sincerely hope they don't fall into the trap of casting their "protest" votes for the so-called Green party.

Casting a protest vote is one thing, but when it risks destroying the lives of over 4.2 million people, it's not something that should be taken lightly.

This election, voters who miss the insight of Graham Lee can choose between the "Family" and "Kiwi" parties. Those who staunchly believe in a Libertarian utopia can vote for their own "Libertarianz" party. Anyone who misses the financial mumbo-jumbo of Bruce Beetham can still vote for the "Democrats for Social Credit".

But if you want your protest vote to really count this election, I encourage you to take a look at The Bill and Ben Party. They're promising to put the "Party" back into "Political Party".

(And they're even backed by the Hospitality Association of New Zealand, as evidenced by the many "B&B" signs outside bed and breakfast spots around the country!)

    None of those B&B signs have authorisation statements - they must be breachign the EFA :)

    I wonder if the Hospitality Assn would get pinged for that breach, rather than the Bill and Ben Party? ;-)

    [For anyone that's confused, we're not talking about The Bill and Ben party campaign images or youtube ads (which do both have the correct authorisation statements), but about those "B&B" signs outside bed & breakfast establishments across NZ... ;-) ]
