Larry Baldock: National have no intention of repealing s59

Hi everyone.

Recent comments reported in the media by John key have made it abundantly clear that National have no intention of repealing Sue Bradford’s anti-smacking law.

National’s call for the referendum to be held at the election so New Zealanders can have their say is meaningless if they are not prepared to listen and respond to the result of the referendum.

You will recall I said very clearly that if we want to see the law changed it is essential that the Kiwi party hold the balance of power after this election.

In less than 4 months New Zealand will hold a general election and we have much to do to prepare the Kiwi Party for a successful result.

The good news is that we have come along way in the five months since our registration with the Electoral Commission was finalised.  Regional conferences have been held in eight cities and Kiwi Party committees have been established and are preparing for action in the coming months.

The Party now has over 1000 members. At every meeting where we have the opportunity to present what the Kiwi Party stands for we find an almost 100% positive response from those who attend.

National Conference
In just over two weeks we will hold our Kiwi Party National conference in Auckland on Aug 9 at the Ellislie Racecourse.

We have an exciting line up of speakers from within the party and invited guests. You can register directly on line.

Nationwide Protest
We are discussing the potential for launching a campaign to protest the Prime Ministers disregard for democracy by not holding the referendum at the election. We are formulating plans and will advise you shortly. I am keen to hear from anyone who would be interested in helping organise a protest gathering in your city or town.

Warm regards,

Larry Baldock
Kiwi Party Leader.
