Here's some Stats:
Total Votes Cast for National Party 2011
Electors on Master Roll who did not Vote
Total votes for GCSB Bill
Here's how those stats combine:
46,790 / 1,058,636 = 4.4%
...so, over twenty times more people voted for the National Party than voted against the GCSB legislation.
Lies. Damn lies. And statistics :-)
One is a national election where everybody is well informed that it is happening, asked to participate, and there are polling booths everywhere for you to use. The other is something I don't even know about, not even mentioned here, I never "voted against" myself because I never had the chance, someone I live with today asked me about the GCSB bill because they didn't even know what was going on despite the fact it's already passed... Your comparing apples to walrus flatulence.
