    I think my son Travis might have been amongst the descending hordes.

    There must be. The Pretty Things returned to NZ last year, after being banned for life from our shores after some greatly exaggerated rascally behaviour here in the 1960s. I saw them at The Powerhouse, and they seemed quite alive.

    That is a very good argument. There are also vested interests ie the proliferation of market research firms running polls and raking in $$$. One reliable source told me that the average cost of commissioning a national poll is $25,000. Sort of akin to real estate agents pushing up the cost of housing, in the interest of commissions?

    Just hope my daughter in Kyoto has found a way to vote. She had a long chat with David Cunliffe a few weeks back and was very impressed.

  • Hard News: A call from Curia,

    As there does not appear to be any general ‘directory’ of mobile numbers, I wonder how they can be randomly selected. As for online responses, this cannot be regarding as polling as it would be self-selecting.

    Yes, he was magnificent. Mora just sounded embarrassed and eager to change the subject.

  • Hard News: Vision and dumbassery,

    'Jake' or 'Jack' or whatever; whacking kids is popular amongst some sectors of the NZ public but that ain't no reason for voting it back in.

  • Up Front: Oh, God, in reply to BenWilson,

    I have just seen a film festival screening of The Young and Prodigious T.S. Spivet, Not so much about origins but a enjoyable celebration of scientific curiosity.
