Bradford has the votes

According to this morning's Herald, things are looking good for Sue Bradford's Crimes (Substituted Section 59) Amendment Bill. NZ First MP Doug Woolerton has agreed to back the bill and oppose any amendment, meaning that it now has 61 votes against the amendment. meanwhile, two National MPs, Katherine Rich and Dr Jackie Blue, have confirmed thatthey will vote for it if Chester Borrow's amendments fail. So the bill now seems highly likely to become law.
