Submission on Open Government

This is a last minute, short, one item submission to the consultation on Open Government:

Hi Martin,
Apologies for such a short statement at the last minute today.
The most important thing that NZ could do to promote open government would be to narrow the criteria and limit the use of “urgency” by government.  A government is not elected to be a dictator but this government is using their popularity to shove through much important legislation that deserves a national discussion, even clearly unpopular legislation.  Urgency is meant to keep the government working, not to shut off debate.
