MMP could have been overwhelmed by nay-sayers, but Simon Power's process will make for a fairer referendum, mimicing Jim Bolger in the 1990s
Well, National has done it again.
In the 1990s Jim Bolger did the decent thing in his "decent society" and played a more or less straight bat to the MMP referendum. He wasn't a fan, but -- a lack of campaign funding limits aside -- he let the people speak without any political chicanery. Now, Simon Power has offered a new referendum that seems just as immaculate in its fairness.
