I thought ACT was suppose to be a party to curb government spending, and cut our taxes, instead they introduce a policy that will bankrupt the country under a poorly guised privatisation school agenda. We need a snap election.

ACT has always struggled to gain a political foothold. I think Banks is the last straw. The irony is that Banks had virtually no history as a member of ACT and was only brought in to try and boost the party's chances in Epsom. National will probably try and win Epsom at the 2014 election and look for support from Colin Craig's Connservative Party and if needed Winston.

Tacitus, you're a victim of your own stereotypes. Despite the pollution caused by industrialisation, children going up chimneys, etc., you fail to mention that almost without exception, the living standards and life expectancy of people in the lowest socio economic groups was increased as a result of the Industrial Revolution, despite the nature of the work they found. It was still better than starving to death as serfs out in the countryside.As a follower of politics, you will also know (although you also failed to mention it) that libertarians support redress through the common law for damage caused by such things as pollution. To use your words: "that's what Libertarianism will get you."
