The Herald maintains its high standards in pursuing the Electoral Finance Act story that DPF (Kiwiblog) kicked off.

The Electoral Commission advice is conservative, in my opinion. “Parliamentary” material that has an electioneering effect can also be an election advertisement, but if I had a large stock of pamphlets I did not want to count against my budget I might think it worthwhile going for a declaratory judgment. Of course Labour will not want their stupidity dissected over days in public, and the other side is enjoying the perpetrators’ misery.

How does the line go – “O what a tangled web [they] weave when first [they] practice to deceive”?
