This is funny, but somehow I don’t feel like laughing. It’s a sign of just scared the public should be of their current government and what they are prepared to do to stay in power.
I marched 3 times to support the rights of people and organizations including unions from this sort of restraint. I didn’t see any union organizers there.

The EMA ran the ads a few days before the parliamentary debate on the law change, and they did not mention voting – they encouraged people to lobby the Government and MPs. The ad (copied from The Standard) is below:
I’m quite sure that at the back of the min of the Electoral Commission is the knowledge that Labour wanted this law to restrain it’s critics, while leaving it’s supporters able to speak. That won’t have changed the result much, just the satisfaction level!
The reality is that Labour know full well which side of the political spectrum is more likely to follow the law. They were counting on the same loose enforcement that got them off their $800,000 scam that they used to win the last election to get their mates off the hook, while using the respect their opponents have for the law to restrain them.
Funny how we’ve had another example of how Labour regards the law just today…
Update: Oops, the EMA is not a union, it’s the Employer’s organisation.
