Text:It looks like the Christian Right parties are going to be the cheap entertainment during this election campaign. The Adams family has just left United Future. Paul Adams, former City Impact Church minister, has left the caucus, and is standing as an independent in East Coast Bays. Sheree Adams, fundie beauty queen, is helping her dad. He needs help, I'd say. He denied it was out of umbrage at being allocated tenth list place, not that any of his erstwhile fellow FNZ carpetbaggers will get back into Parliament either on current polling. The delightfully ghoulish characters Morticia and Gomez Addams should seek legal advice. They are understood to be seriously upset at the intellectual property implications of a rival grotesquely comic family making off with their trademark. As for Destiny New Zealand, it's still trying to get on to Marae's Wairiki debate, currently restricted to Maori-centred political parties in Parliament. Meanwhile, Christian Heritage is trying to get in on the act, despite the fact that it has only ever been in Parliament once, and that after stealing Frank Grover from the Alliance in the late nineties. It wants an invite to TVNZ's Leaders Debate. Ewen McQueen is a brave man, especially after Capillgate. If he does materialise, I hope someone asks him whether the CHP has policies, protocols and procedures to deal with child sexual abuse within the party now, as they obviously didn't under his predecessor.
