  • Hard News: UPDATED: Media Take: Election…,

    Re the show on Tuesday night:
    I thought Toi rather missed Laura O’Connell Rapira's point when he said 'we'll see you next election', as she had just stressed that phase II of RockEnrol's vision was to continue to engage young voters after the election.
    Maybe you could check in with them 6 months on to see how it's going.?

    I also imagine RockEnrol will have cyclic work for every new cohort of eligible voters that comes of age each year, hell, every day.
    ...and why wait till election year to apprise them of their rights and power?
    - it could be the new rite of passage the Government should send a letter to everyone when they turn 18, welcoming them to the plebiscite and assuring them their vote counts and why.
    - its nice to feel included...

    and perhaps there's room for a 'younger version' of Media Take as well?
    (or you could let them 'curate' an episode)

    I’ve beanstalkin’…

    A fee? Fie! He only reigns until his foes stop fumbling

    We do need a ‘giant killer’ (figuratively of course!)
    and ‘David’ Cunliffe does look a lot like Stumbo…
    time for a real bridge builder
    (look you can see the Greens in there)
    rather than a spanner in the works…
    (or a mega man!)
    Just sayin…

    forex a jolly good fellow...

    do you have to be born overseas to be a “foreign” millionaire?

    John Key was born in Auckland
    that's a foreign country to us Chchch folk
    (even if we did raise that viper at our breast)
    let's exchange 'foreign' for 'alien'
    'cos he sure acts like he has 'a lien' on the country...

  • Speaker: Why I'm standing in Ilam,

    The 'Scottish' Candidate...
    Ummm, James,

    There are a number of questions that I think the people of Christchurch deserve to have answered.
    What are you going to do to fix EQC, and all the insurance claims that are still outstanding?
    Are you going to renegotiate the cost-sharing agreement with the council, or are you going to stick with the plan of forcing the council to pay for things that they can’t afford, like a stadium, whilst compelling them to sell productive council assets?
    And, probably most importantly, if re-elected, would a National-led government have Gerry Brownlee as earthquake recovery minister...

    ...doesn't sound like you think Labour is going to get in...

    More importantly could you articulate Labour's answers to those same questions here as well (except the Gerry one of course) - because that would explain what you were standing for, (chasing Party Vote too I assume) and that it's not just some 'punitive signal' generation action.

    after all 'here' is just one big doorstep to many rooms...
    just sayin'

    Good luck, go get him!

    (Maybe you didn't put the policy stuff in because it would have made this an ad, which it seems it is any way if I understand Russell aright over on the other thread)

  • Hard News: Dirty Politics,

    The wags of sin?
    I've been trying to find out how much John Key has donated to National over the years - so far I can only find $30,000 back in 2008
    Surely when he first arrived on the scene early 2001/2002 he had his chequebook out?
    Otherwise why was he rushed to the front of the queue, with no real political experience behind him?

    I also found this interesting treatise in the NZ Journal of Media Studies on 'Brand Key'

    ‘What then is the meaning of John Key?’
    He means both nothing and everything, like so many shopping malls around the globe that belong everywhere and nowhere. He means the hegemony of brutal capitalism.
