    If my country needs me then I suppose I should oblige.

    We shall expect your next installment no later than mid-2018.

    David I'm hoping your Week in Parliament will be a regular feature from now on. Your country needs you! ;-)

  • Speaker: David Fisher: The OIA arms race, in reply to nzlemming,

    I think Clark’s “no surprises” rule was about letting the minister know information was being released before he/she had to front the media on it. Key’s rule is more about “does the minister want this released?”

    This.
    Also, under Key, ministers seem to consider fronting to the media and/or public to be optional.

  • Speaker: David Fisher: The OIA arms race,

    Thanks for this David. It's such an important issue, and you're in a position to give a big-picture summary of change over time. Valuable.

  • Hard News: The Hager saga continues, in reply to Russell Brown,

    IPCA’s wording to Slater was pretty sloppy

    The "your file will remain closed" sounds like a fervent hope rather than a statement.

  • Up Front: Good to Go?, in reply to Moz,

    the Mary Daly “no woman can consent to sex with a man”

    Perhaps you mean Adrienne Rich? Her famous 1980 essay is titled “Compulsory Heterosexuality and Lesbian Existence”, argued that where heterosexuality is compulsory, “consent” has limited meaning for lesbians.

    It's a stitch-up

    that’s where this sewer has gone

    I'm off to knit up the ravelled sleeve of care.
    Night!

    doesn’t that mean we then
    have a ‘stablehand’ in control?

    If only they'd do the mucking-out. #DirtyPolitics

    a dolt from the Blue Lagoon

    ...trying to shut the stable door, but the House has dolted.

  • Legal Beagle: Terrorism is already illegal,

    This is really scary. We don't even know what freedoms we're about to lose in this make-believe.
