New venue for 'Colorblind State' launch

Outspoken ad man John Ansell has found a new venue to launch his "Colourblind State" campaign after an Auckland business group pulled the pin on him.

The Rotary Club of Remuera cancelled a meeting Ansell planned earlier this month, claiming it had been "ambushed" into providing a platform for a political ad campaign launch.

On his blog, Ansell said he would hold the meeting at an undisclosed venue in Tauranga, on November 12.

"To avoid trouble I'm not releasing the name of the venue until everyone who wants to come has told me who they are and how to contact them," he posted.
