Greens should turn shocking pink from deep embarrassment over waka-jumping position

Point of Order

Former Green Party co-leader Jeanette Fitzsimons will be deeply disappointed in the anti-democratic position taken (reluctantly” – ha!) by her party’s current bunch of Parliamentary incumbents.  They will be voting in support of the so-called waka-jumping bill.

As reported by Newshub, Fitzsimons said of the Electoral (Integrity) Amendment Bill:

“You can’t legislate for integrity. Integrity is a question of judgement. It’s a question of conscience,” she said.

The bill’s singular aim is to prevent disgruntled MPs from exercising their freedom to join or create another party if they fall out with their own.
