Big BORA fly in the 3 Strikes ointment

Constitutional legal brain Andrew Geddis has a ripper post on Garrett's Three Strikes Bill and the Bill of Rights Act:
Sitting opposite [Garrett] in the caucus room you’ve got John Boscawen, who has spent some tens-of-thousands of his own dollars going all the way to the Court of Appeal in a vain effort to have the now-repealed Electoral Finance Act declared inconsistent with … that same Bill of Rights Act.

Then you’ve got Rodney Hide and Heather Roy, who in 2007 voted to extend that same Bill of Rights Act to protect private property rights.
A very good read.
