I find it odd that both NZ First and Labour's letterbox 'party flyers' don't have their websites listed on them - the one for our local MP (Poto Williams - Labour) does - I threw the National one away so I can't check that.
I guess it isn't hard to work out what their websites would be, but I'd have thought that they wouldn't put any impediment to people following things up...
I'd like to buy a beer for the RNZ newsreader at 5pm tonight who was just talking about the increase in advance voting this election and then went on to say 'more people than usual were taking the drug...' (or words to that effect )
- I had heard this voting is addictive, nice to have it confirmed.
Even if she just did 30mins, it’d be great.
Literally 'House music from in da house!'
hopefully with Parliament samples of all sorts...
New video out from Blair Parkes latest release 'Saturations'
'so very useful'
and I have to say I'm loving his new paintings on old boards from Lyttelton
I guess all we have left now then is
the Wisdom of Crowds and
the Kindness of Strangers...
Polling 2017: life beyond landlines?
Have to admit at first glance I read that as
life beyond landmines?
...and thought how much more dangerous
modern politics is nowadays...
The underlying problem is that, to be bunt, New Zealanders don’t know shit about China.
Bearing that in mind, can I open a sweepstake on this ending up as the 'Manchurian Candidategate'...
...the “wasted vote” (ie votes for parties that don’t cross the 5% threshold and don’t win an electorate).
I have to admit I hadn't fully realised that this was part of the MMP equation - until they started talking about the 'discarded vote' on Morning Report this morning.
Though I thought it was a bit on the nose at this point in the voting process for them to be pointing to a Green vote as a potential 'discarded vote' - that may sway some voters.
Upon looking through my voting pack, I had to laugh when I saw ACT has 39 (thirty nine) list candidates!!!
Should be renamed The Optimists Party!
