United Future has no future

May 26, 2007

Dave at big news has information that United Future has fallen below the 500 members required to be registered as a political party. Dave does not give the source of the story on his blog, and asuming he is honest, I doubt United Future will be derigistered given that even small fringe parties like Legalise Cannibis have 500 members. If true, United future is in big trouble. Given that its only two weeks since Copeland’s defection, it is likely there will be more defections with him, and some members may not renew their membership. If derigistered Dunne can stay in parliament if he keeps his Ohariu seat in 2008, but can’t bring anyone on the list with him.
