Ian Andrews has kindly agreed to take over our blog and Facebook page so I can concentrate on other issues. Ian is an extremely intelligent and interesting bloke who often comes up with a different perspective. I hope you will all support him by participating and commenting on issues more important than chocolate biscuits.

Greetings Ian - I have just stumbled across the blog site and I would like to wish you all the best for the future of this vital debate .
I suggest that anyone who is really interested in seeing Binding Referenda adopted in NZ should join up and support both the Better Democracy group and the NZ Conservative Party - the only party that is fully committed to the concept as a fundamental and non negotiable core policy.
