Taking back control 

OK I've decided that as of today I'll run the best press release of the previous week on Monday morning.

Last week was a tough one, especially with the New Zealand Freemason Society announcing that it will be holding an open day, freaky. Check that out on Scoop.

But taking the cake was this release from the "freedom fighter" Libertarianz health spokesman:

Blowing Smoke at the Wowsers
Libertarianz health deregulation spokesman Richard Goode will tomorrow enjoy a cigarette gifted by Timaru publican Geoff Mulvihill.
At 4pm on Sunday afternoon, at the Carlton Hotel in Timaru, Mulvihill will risk a $5000 fine to protest against oppressive new anti-smoking legislation that could put him out of business.
"This is a courageous and principled stand taken by a man whose livelihood has been put at risk by busybody bureaucrats," said Goode. "I'm more than happy to accept the hospitality of a fellow freedom fighter."
The Libertarianz Party advocates the scrapping of the Smokefree Environments Act and promotes instead that property owners are left free to set their own smoking policies on theuir own property. Echoing Mulvihill's own comments, Goode said, "Who are the government to tell Geoff how to run his business? These control freaks should just get out of the way and let people run their own lives."
Mulvihill and Goode will be taking back control of their lives at 4pm on Sunday 22nd August at the Carlton Hotel, 66 Stafford Street, Timaru.
