I'm sure it was mcully who leaked it. I know shane dosen't have a lot of love for cunliffe but he did seem to have some tribal loyalty to labour im pretty sure he wouldn't have wanted it to be outed like this
I wonder if the fact the he is German and owns a copy of a book by Hitler made it news worthy to @3news. (I'm sure there is more than one politician in NZ who has a copy of that book and many other political biographies)
Isn't nice that with just a tiny scratch you can reveal New Zealand's racist side
I bloody love a good jump cuts!
(After watching 12 years a slave I had to go an watch 7 days before I could sleep)
This is a very personal story about a dear friend and your grief must be very raw. Thank you for sharing this with us David I have something in both my eyes
Most universities have political clubs for every party and staff are welcome to join 'Princes St Labour' being one of the most famous and they will often use rooms at the university for party meetings.
There would be hell to pay if this didn't happen, freedom of political expression and all that
Paul Henry is an interesting case. On his first show at TV3 he told David Cunliffe he would never vote for him. Cunliffe said he thought he was supposed to be an independent journalist. Henry replied 'what gave you that idea?'
So Henry has declared his bias and not to many people has an issue with it.
So it seems to me people have an issue with Shane because he didn't wear his bias like a badge.
I't couldn't be just about using an an empty room and sending personal emails on work time could it?
The person yelling ‘she is getting away’ and talking about the excitement was Guy Williams. He was doing his usual rabble rousing stuff which is funny but not when the people he is there to take the piss out of (ie the media scrum) take it seriously.
He latter apologised for his behaviour on twitter which FWIW seemed genuine
The Hives frontman had real issues with those balls. He was pretty keen for the crowd view of him not to obstructed (the dude is so rock n roll)
I see David Cunliffe has an open invite to a state of the nation event happening soon. I also remember dancing to Che Fu at a part conference some year ago.
It seems the electoral commission’s policy on treating is related to
1. how big is your party
2. how much fun are you likely to have at this event
It’s not good enough. For many young people going to a concert and hearing the artists speak between songs IS political discourse the commision should stay out of it
