United Changes Position on EFB

Some good news today, Peter Dunne and his United Party have made the right decision and will vote against the Electoral Finance Bill. Of course, we like to think that lobbying, and the analysis and pressure from blogs such as this have had an impact.

As we noted a week or so ago, Peter Dunne, also distanced himself a little on the Emissions Trading Bill, signalling a willingness for Select Committee consideration to stretch into the next Parliament - so that Parliament can get this policy right.
