Darnton v Clark: Fly the flag!

Here's a way you can show your support for Bernard Darnton's case against Helen Clark: fly a Darnton v Clark banner at your site.

The first banner is now available at Darnton Vs Clark, a news ticker that keeps readers updated with events (you can see it in my right-hand sidebar). More banners to come very shortly.

  1. can you get a banner like the make poverty history banners?

  2. Yep, I'm told that's on the drawing board as we speak.

  3. Yes. Looks good on yours. You've obviously worked out how to nudge it over a little. :-/

  4. Can someone explain why this issue is not being promoted as a transpartisan ideological one. Why are Libertarians running to the conservative side of the aisle (yet again), when the matter of limits to governmental power transcends partisan conflicts?

    It's not just me asking that either. Interested people want to know, because if supporting this endeavour is akin to supporting the Right we don't want to know about it.

  5. "Can someone explain why this issue is not being promoted as a transpartisan ideological one."

    Because the Left doesn't care. To quote "Havoc" from a recent RNZ interview with Bernard:

    "All I hear is Geoffry Palmer Constitution blah blah blah yawn."

    The fact of the matter is that if you believe that government power should be limited, then you should support this action.

    This time Helen Clark got caught out. If you don't act now, the next government to step over the line may be a National/ACT party (remember Tony Rile positing the idea that the burden of proof should be placed on the accused rather than the accuser [ie the government] in certain criminal cases?) and the infringement may be much much worse.

    Stop the bleeding now I say - partisan political loyalties be damned.
