    Bannon, is possibly more of a more of a wight or ghoul.

    Alt-wight, surely?

    Also, I like the idea of people being asked more often what they would like.

    What we need is an experiment in participatory democracy...

    Influential New Zealand musician Buster Stiggs has died. He was 63.
    Stiggs, real name Mark John Hough, was a founding member of The Swingers and a member of influential punk outfit Suburban Reptiles. He played drums on The Swingers' major hit Counting the Beat.

    To me the thing with postal ballots is that there is no real way of knowing that it was returned to the post/ballot box marked by the person to whom it was addressed.

    When delivering local community newsletters in Richmond Chchch during the ‘Flag Exercise’ I noticed many stuck in overfull letterboxes of empty houses – this may just have been a post-earthquke Chchch thing.

    They could also be just taken filled in and returned, or people who don’t give a toss could pass the form onto someone else to use their vote in aid of a particular outcome.

    People will try anything.

    I reckon at an election time (either local or national) is best – when people are more ‘civically aware’ and use the time up to that, to educate and engage the public.

    Trump’s bowtie persona would be Richie Rich, while everyone wishes he were more like lookalike Stumbo…. - maybe a little less golf...

    The ” city on a shining hill” is starting to look like a shit can.

    City on the shill?

    ...watching a car crash...

    In ultra-slow motion (tell the lawyers it's called 'Peckinpahesque')
    I suspect Trump is a loose deployed airbag...
    up in the air with a lot of baggage carrying momentum.
