    So the price of bread goes up too? Will no-one think of the children?

    Look, I know they're a good source of protein but, really, some things are off the menu.

  • Up Front: Mmmmmm, MMP,

    So, if National win the election, proceed with their promise to hold a referendum on MMP (and assuming FFP would no longer pass muster), what would you folks vote for..?

    I'd stay with MMP myself: Not perfect but simple to explain compared to other systems (as I've been paid to do some elections).

    Clark as the victim of media bias here?

    I don't think so Craig. The Herald has gone into campaign mode earlier than in 2005 due to the Electorial Finance Act which, I think anyone might agree, their has been some inaccurate reporting of in the paper. But Labour won 2005. The Herald may have the majority view more with them this time. Or not.

    But what is clear is that the Herald's coverage cannot be taken as a neutral, near objective angle. And I think that's obvious to anyone paying attention.

    By the way, why hasn't there been a headline in the papers yet - "Winnie in the Pooh".

    Because a Public Address discussion got there first a few days ago...

    Rodney won't hold Epsom, where my spies tell me people are sick of having an even more absentee MP than Worth.

    I wish I had your confidence but there's plenty of feeling on the ground in the eastern areas of the electorate that they'd *really* like to try to return Roger. My Mt Eden end of the electorate tends left but is out-voted by actual Epsom et al.
