This is brilliant – A line from PR put out by the group wanting to abolish MMP  (proportional voting system in use in NZ) can be read in a way that says completely the opposite thing.

“Put MMP to the Vote is recommending New Zealand voters adopt the supplementary member system, which will halve the number of list MPs and limit the power of minor parties to frustrate the will of the people.”

i read it first time as saying: limiting the power of minor parties will frustrate the will of the people.which is of course completely true but I don’t think that’ was the message they were trying to convey.

Hire a better PR company “Put MMP to the vote” !!
