Ep 27: In which I chat with Simon Holmes à Court about Hung Parliaments, Not-Shit Independents and how they can help end this shit-stained Government at the 2022 election.
Excerpt from Honest Government Ad (from Juice media)
“You might remember us from the last ad we made about preferential voting. We hope you haven’t watched it, because the last thing we want you to know is how to use it to vote for a not-shit candidate at the coming election. You know, one who isn’t owned by these guys, and who’ll fight for your kids’ future rather than theirs. Because if enough of you give your first preference vote to not-shit candidates, some of them might win some seats and become not-shit MPs. And ifthat happens, this election will end up With a hung Parliament.”
