Surprise… Maurice Williamson
Damn. That speech was good, clear and as daft as I tend to find marriage (but if Lyn wants one then I willingly grasp it – at a registry office please?), he best espoused my view.
update1: By contrast Winston Peters played classic politics. If that doesn’t give his party a few percent at the next election in South Auckland then I don’t know what would.
update2: Tau Henare the twitter maniac then followed in the spirit of vengeance..
This is one time that I wish I’d gotten around to putting the aerial on.
update4: Kevin Hague stating the effect on him.
update5: John Banks – getting older and wiser? Or following Act’s policy. Either way a good speech and a good vote.
On the other(live) screen, the voting is going on.
And they’re back… Unusually I’m interested in the result. As Lyn says it is a historic moment.. Now if the silly “representatives” would just sit down…..
Ok – passed quite well. Passed well.
Despite my skepticism about the institution of marriage, I think that anyone who wants to try that as a route to a stable relationship should be allowed to try it. Lyn amends that to adults…
update5: Flavell – I particularly liked the description of maori customary marriage. This is now the kiwi way.
update6: Chester Burrowes was probably one of the more interesting speakers. Watch it and see why. This is NZ (even old policemen) growing up.
update7: I’m afraid that I’m far more interested in how far the right has come than I am in the left. Dr Hutchinson.
Update8: Honourable mention for Mojo Mathers and Ruth Dyson routing out the debate… But Moana Mackey was almost as blunt as I would be – but somewhat more polite.. Why are we having this debate?
Update9: And back to the hero.
ok, thats over now Louisa – can we talk about your bad speaking habits now? Why in the hell do you keep doing these vague looks around looking at things we cannot see. You look like you have zombies surrounding you!!!!!!!! Ok – coming to think of it. And considering where you are. It is possible that you may have cause. Plenty of the walking dead in the house.
Finalupdate: Ok Louisa, you didn’t do better than Maurice Williamson. However your speech was pretty damn good… I may have to keep an malevolent eye on you.
