"Democracy of course involves elections but it also involves freedom of media and freedom of speech and you're not going to be able to have a proper democratic process and elections in a years time unless those basic freedoms are upheld."

Now, Aunt Helen has either completely lost track of the attacks by her this week on NZ journalists over things they wrote which she disagreed with, and clearly the passing of the anti freedom of speech Electoral Finance Act last year slipped her mind like a 175km an hour car trip through the streets of an unimportant small New Zealand town.
