This morning the DAFT party got air time on the Paul Holmes breakfast show on Newstalk ZB. Currently waiting to see if can get a sound bite of it to post on here. We are assured of two more voters who like our policy for outlawing the duckworth lewis scoring system.

Today the yet to be named Silly Party of New Zealand has released a new policy on native and or endangered animals.
We will make owning cats, dogs, rats, noxious introduced beasties illegal and we will put a Kiwi or a Tuatara, or other such endangered native animal into every home.

may be hard to fit through the old cat flap.
We also run a parrallel policy for the reduction of introduced pests. We’ll open Pest Eradication Teepee’s (PETs for short) and people can bring in nasties and recieve a bounty. $5 for every pidgeon, $15 for every possum,$100 for every wild deer, $300000 for every Bengal Tiger.

Teepee grow as the the word spreads about
the YtbNNZSP Native NZ Now policy.
The benefits of this policy will be amazing. Not only will we rid our foot paths of dog shit, our tin rooves of possums, and our emo’s rooms of rats, but we will bring back many speciese from the brink of extinction. Also this move to irradicate all non essential animals will have the added effect of saving owners money. Worms and grass hoppers are cheaper than tins of cat food, and dog buscuits. Also having a kiwi as a pet would be a perfect way for NZ to cement some sort of national pride.
Also average Jo(e) would be able to make some money off the initial period of culling. Lets face it I could reach out the window of my Cuba mall apartment and grab at least 5 pigeons. A YtbNNZSP government could also profit on this buy then off selling the meat to Satay Kingdom and on overseas markets, perhaps even give surplus meat to the UN to distribute as it sees fit.
The Bidding on the Party name is going well. Two days in and we’re up to $20, i’m hoping for at least $30 so we can can take out a classified ad in the Taranaki Daily News:
