Electoral Finance Act anger just won't go away

Just got back from holding a placard outside the Carlton Hotel to protest the iniquity on free speech that is the Clark Government's Electoral Finance Act.

Helen Clark was there for the post-Budget lunch, where she and a few compliant business leaders swap jokes and election pork over a few tax-paid canapes.  For some reason however she decided to eschew our genteel welcoming party outside the front door and chose instead to enter the hotel by the tradesman's entrance -- sort of sad, isn't it, when a Prime Minister can't even enter the front door of a major Auckland hotel without being harassed by errant serfs.

Here's a few pictures.

Looks like even 'Michael Cullen' agreed with the protest.
