It has been suggested by one of the locals that Colin Craig should stand in the Helensville electorate, because John Key is "too gay". Does Colin Craig even live in the electorate, or will that not be a problem?
I don't often have something nice to say about John Key, but I do like how he has supported the repeal of s59 of the Crimes Act, and marriage equality.
As for Colin Craig, he is a joke. If he didn't have the money to fund his political fantasies of imposing his version of sharia law on NZ, the media would not care a jot for his thoughts. The only reason he gets any coverage is because publishing his views generates advertising revenue. His party might make the threshold in an election, once, but it seems unlikely. And they would be a terrible coalition partner - imagine a National/Conservative government facing the marriage equality or asset sales issues. It's almost a shame that the bill legalising adoption by gay couples has come up in the ballot, I'd love to see Mr Craig's opposition to that as an MP in a National-led government.
