Imagine my surprise when I checked out Kiwiblog yesterday afternoon to find that this blog post from NOT PC and this press release from Libertarianz bore a remarkable resemblance to a post at Kiwiblog that bore the fruits, so it was reported, of hours of David Farrar's research. "I engaged my masochistic side," said David, "and decided [read] every Green policy they have released."
Oh well, just another unattributed example of the tribalism of the election period. The important news is out there nonetheless: that the Greens are the ultimate Nanny State party. So if you're a Green supporter do NOT watch this. You should probably try to ban it:
Naturally, intelligent observers will notice that since the video was produced, the Greens have added their population control policy, and their 'ban rich pricks' policy. They don't slow down, do they. And they're likely to have the casting vote come November...
UPDATE 1: Crikey, it's hard to keep up with the buggers. Add "ban inorganic farming." As Liberty Scott explains, the Green Party "wants 15% of farms organic by 2015 and half of all production organic by 2020. The Greens don’t intend to do this by promotion or market demand..."
UPDATE 2: David F. responds with commendable swiftness:
Peter - I'd been working on that blog post for the best part of a week. And I have numerous witnesses to that as I was giving them verbal update reports. In fact I have a witness who was with me as I was reading their policies and extracting bans from them.
I don't appreciate the suggestion I stole it from you. That is unworthy of you...."
