  • Hard News: Dirty Politics,

    With both Labour and National courting NZ First/Winston Peters support I'm grateful Act are unlikely to be part of such a coalition: http://www.nzherald.co.nz/nz/news/article.cfm?c_id=1&objectid=11326574.
    As someone accidently within the Epsom electorate I hope they don't get in at all But I've been hoping that for a few elections now....

  • Hard News: Interview: Glenn Greenwald, in reply to CJM,

    I think the former. I think she herself would admit technology interviews aren't her strongest submit and was working with the documents the PM had released. As was his intention.

    I'd rather know before the election than not although I do believe what Hager has said of the timing.

  • Hard News: Not doing justice, in reply to Craig Ranapia,

    With Gibson's repeat offensiveness Cunliffe may be called on to act on the 'last warning' given. If so, I don't think Labour would shed too many tears at that point.

  • Hard News: Not doing justice,

    I think refusing to stand on the list indicates that that these candidates are not genuinely campaigning for the party, rather acting more selfishly.

    I think it can also be seen as the opposite: A party in need of rejuvenation getting younger candidates move up the list and electorate candidates test whether they truly have their local support. Likewise, standing as high on the list only could also be seen as selfish but may be argued as necessary for an essential member of the cabinet.

  • Hard News: The crybaby philosopher,

    I ink Whyte got exactly what he sought: People talking about ACT and him. Many may notice the talk without reading or investigating his argument and assume the content to be their own biases. Suits him fine, although intellectually dishonest.
