      Libertarianz Will Not Contest Te Tai Hauauru By-election
      ========================================

      Libertarianz Deputy Stephen Berry has ruled out any participation in the Te
      Tai Hauauru by-election by Libertarianz. It will be a farcical event, he
      says, contested only by racists making racist offers in a racist electorate.

      "Libertarianz has always opposed the existence of the Maori seats," points
      out Berry. "For any government to uphold such a prime example of separatism
      is a disgrace in a society where individuals are meant to have equal
      rights.".

      Berry envisions the quality of the by-election campaign will be very low in
      any case. "We have nothing but a simple racial scabfest to look forward to.
      With most parliamentary parties reportedly ignoring the event, contenders
      will likely compete only by promising more of other people's money for
      Maori."

      "The only concern now is the possibility of this being a launching pad for a
      Maori party. The abolition of the racist Maori seats is a sure way of
      destroying the electoral chances of such a party. Libertarianz encourages
      this abolition because it will eliminate an anomaly in power that has been
      granted to racial extremists over voters of other races. These are
      gerrymandered seats whose time for extinction has arrived."

      Ends
