Labour wants to allow police to raid political party offices to gather evidence of breaches of its planned election spending laws.As Lucyna says, "You can almost hear the jack-boots already."
The Herald's own editorial draws a lesson for the Clark Government that it "has not learned very much from its public lashing last year over election spending." Highly ironic then that a raid on Heather Simpson's office just days before the last election would have revealed her own run around the election spending laws on behalf of the Clark Government.
Where, oh where, are the left liberals who still truly value democracy?
