    This obviously doesnt apply to paid election broadcasting - right?

  • Joanna,

    But what about his cat? Why is no one covering the big issue? What kind of cat is it? What is its name? Where was it adopted from???

  • chris,

    Frankly impressed JoKey has the time and energy. Supreme multitasking, or inequitable workload? Either way my cat maintains he's a flimsy sot.

    Do some actual work you lazy fuck.

    Donkey John Ill is relaxed about that. He has Coro to save, or will he just "muddle through" until the next Election.

    Paid election advertising may only air after writ day and may only be paid for by the taxpayer dollars we provide through the broadcasting allocation.*

    *candidates may pay for their own after writ day, but it all counts toward their $25k spending limit. It can't endorse the party, or oppose another candidate.

  • Cecelia,

    Wasn't promising to bring Coro back to primetime an electioneering stunt? Good try, John, but I still won't be voting for you.

    John Key had to talk about his cat and Coronation Street

  • Rich of Observationz,

    But it's electioneering even if the candidate talks about his cat. Indeed, if the political strategy is to damp down discussion and sleepwalk to reelection, after the fashion of Bob Parker, then talking about ones cat is the best strategy.

  • Craig Young,

    What about the diversity of media sources? Does anyone have any hard data on which ones are regarded as most reliable, compared to others?
