Alf has been working on a private member’s bill that would bar Whitireia Polytechnic students from voting in general elections, and maybe from all local government elections, too.
He was concerned that the students have demonstrated bad judgement by casting their votes in favour of a candidate who – it turns out – had a bothersome blot on his copy-book.
They voted on to their executive a bloke called Tai Te Karu, who became their union vice-president.
At least, Alf assumes they voted him on. They do vote for those positions, don’t they?
If so, how well did they inform themselves about the qualities of the candidates to whom they would be handing stewardship of their compulsory student fees?
