  • Speaker: An Open Letter To David Cunliffe,

    I've been a member for years. I will be voting! Agree leadership isn't the only issue and will input into the review as well. As I did last time.

  • Speaker: An Open Letter To David Cunliffe,

    I've been composing a post re David Cunliffe all day. I was going to put it on The Standard because I was frustrated at the nasty, one-eyed, posts on there. Then I saw the link to this - exactly what I was going to say. I posted leaflets in the bloody rain, talked on doorsteps till I was blue in the face, hounded young people to register etc. I also voted for Cunliffe in the leadership election.
    No more. If Cunliffe gets in I'm off to the Greens, with all my whanau and all my mates. He won't get Labour over the line - he doesn't cut through and appeal to those people the party needs to get over the line. Simple as that.

    I agree. There's a buzz about them today and being unconventional will build on that courage/creative feeling people are beginning, ever so tentatively, to develop.

    Presumably voters.
    Listening to Act radio broadcast. I think Don roped in his relations.

    The poll in the media today says JK is doing well with young, male Aucklanders. Who presumably aren't at home on a Friday night watching the box. And presumably the handshake didn't bother them either. Or Rena. An hour on the radio would've hit the spot though.

  • Southerly: Tower Insurance Have Some Bad…,

    Take a bow Gerry, you got it just right - John Armstrong in the NZ Herald this morning.

  • Muse: OPEN THREAD: Voices from Christchurch,

    My dad was in the cathedral yesterday and was missing until 6ish last night. Worst thing was the TV3 reporter wandering in to the cathedral and chatting away about "if there are people in here they're under there..." How he was allowed in there I do not know. Felt like he was walking on dad's grave.
    Dad eventually found in hospital, covered in cuts and bruises but well enough to go home to my frantic mum. Thankfully she had no power and wasn't seeing the telly.

  • Hard News: What about that Welfare…,

    Why is this government focusing on those on welfare? What about the failing export sector? The exodus of our young and talented, our deficit, our S and P rating? Welfare reform and tax cuts? pathetic and won't stop us sliding into Ireland and Greece territory.

  • Hard News: Morning in Auckland,

    Of course the suspension is PR spin. My guess is that advertisers got worried about boycott talk all over Facebook etc. It won't be anything to do with good sense or decent TV.

  • Hard News: Do these people even talk?,

    The sad thing about this whole saga is that you're right Russell, the development fund clearly isn't for this sort of project. But, Maori TV is the only channel that looks like it belongs to us, it is passionate, quirky, homegrown etc. Whereas TVNZ treat us all like fools night after night - and my Great Aunt Sheila would give a more lively and interesting rugby commentary.
