Lyndon Hood - NAL, Lower Hutt

Sunday, May 21, 2006

I have actually written a bunch of words about how, while Labour is indeed guilty of electoral shenanigins, it's still raises a dry smile to see which other parties were criticising them for it.

I also pointed out some other systemic dippiness, some of which may be genuinely mitigating, but I lost patience in the the fact-checking stage. Sorry. You may see it soon, but I don't have a good record on that kind of thing.

Might be some changes afoot at Fighting Talk. But I can't tell you what, because the inquiry has not reported back yet.

By the way, for blogs that you are keen to read, but don't post very often, I recommend using the RSS bookmarks in Firefox.

Brash's Press Conference Prep - Possible Scenarios - After Winston Peter's tabling of leaked emails in Parliament, the question on everyone's lips is - what was Don Brash thinking at that press conference?

We're not sure which one is genuine, but logically, one of them must be. You be the judge!
