DPF doesn't care about democracy

A couple of years ago, DPF went apeshit about the then-Labour government's Electoral Finance Act. While intended to protect democracy from the unequal influence of the rich, DPF saw it as an attack on democracy. So he vented online, raised funds, even launched billboards comparing the government to Mao Zedong, Kim Jong-Il, and Frank Bainimarama. So you'd think that when the present government announced plans to sack an elected council and strip 560,000 people of their vote in regional council elections for four years, as a "defender of democracy", he'd be similarly outraged about it, right?

Yeah, right. He supports it. Taking people's votes off them is fine if you take them from people who vote the "wrong" way.

So much for DPF's commitment to democracy.
