85 bans – and what they REALLY are

Baybuzz has unfortunately bought into Kiwiblog’s anti-Green agenda and highlighted a supposed list of 85 bans contained in Green Policy. Green policy is very detailed in the interests of transparency, and is often being revised and updated. Behind it sit principles that do not change. One of my colleagues has done a quite analysis of the “85” so voters can judge for themselves. As you’ll see some are bans for good reason, some are partial restrictions and others are not bans at all. As I commented on Baybuzz, every party seeks to ‘ban’, stop, restrict, close things – ACT wants to ban Kyoto and the ETS, and even the LiberteriaNZ seem to want to ban the Greens!

Here’s the list and explanation: 85-bans
