  • Hard News: News from home ...,

    Well I just hope that those who are genuine Labour supporters (all 6000+) of you tuck in behind the present Leader and do what it takes to build a creditable opposition

    Not a bad idea but it is worth remembering that people pay the ever bigger prices not the agents

  • Hard News: Doing over the witness,

    You say rather ingeniously that Hager was just " a witness" but he was more than that as he clearly profited from a crime
    It can be said ( certainly from the Left ) " that it was for the public good" but let us let the Courts make that decision
    And while we are doing that lets see what real motivation was behind all this

  • Hard News: The humanity, in reply to Sofie Bribiesca,

    Sofie, I do have an interest in who leads the opposition, firstly because a strong opposition is important for our democracy and because there is a better than even chance he (or she) will be our PM in three years time

  • Hard News: The humanity,

    So it was ok when the PM was being given a hard time before the election, I certainly don't remember you calling for an easing of the questioning but not ok when the Leader of the opposition who has just lead the party to a historical defeat is trying to be tricky, is called on his actions

    And by being tricky will not resign but wants his colleges to vote no confidence in him so he can rort his own re-election!

  • Hard News: Five further thoughts, in reply to Lilith __,

    I hear what you are saying but most of the polls were a lot closer than that, I don't think either side thought it was in the bag
    I often wonder though what would happen if we held an election just a week later
    Everybody pile in to back a winner or a lot more strategic voting

  • Hard News: The sole party of government, in reply to Tom Semmens,

    And much as I admire Deborah who worked hard but the vote for the left dropped as this time there was no Green candidate, where did those 2000 votes go?

  • Legal Beagle: Election 2014: The Special…,

    Nice work Graeme, the election night result will stand
    The people have spoken, the Left are as not a popular choice as social media would have us believe( the snark on Twitter from the left over the Leaders speeches was amazing) let us as a country get moving, there is plenty to do

  • Hard News: A call from Curia, in reply to Tom Semmens,

    The law does need looking at with the growth of advance voting
    I have seen photos of Mana people in all their regalia standing outside polling places
    I am not sure if that or polls would change voters minds but as the law is so strict on polling day changes are needed
