  • Legal Beagle: MMP Review #1: The Party…,

    Dear All,
    It is fascinating to see everyone going on about mmp and what the threshold should be. The threshold isnt the problem, it is how many politicians there are.
    Most of my (over 50) friends think that most politicians are self serving scum who want to control far to many aspects of our lives and get paid too much. and that 120 of them is far too many and that should be halved. Complaints about how hard they have to work fall on deaf ears.
    If there were fewer of them less would get done. Which is a good thing. Might be less knee jerk reactions and un needed legislation passed
