I keep walking into the “In Committee” sections of the conference. As a amateur “journalist”, I’m really going to have to start working on that.
Listening to a quite good speech by a 17 year old from Dunedin (must find out his name – Kobe?). It sounds like he has been reading our site. But it is heavily scripted and rehearsed. None the less pretty impressive. Winston in a standup said that NZ First hadn’t been involved in writing it. He isn’t a member – too young?
In the stand up. Winston said that his announcements this afternoon will have monetary policy, tax policy, asset and land sales, and sound economy on issues like dirty dairy. By the sound of it there will be the law and order issues.
Winston really not interested in talking about polls – he just thinks (like me) that they are simply inaccurate. Nor is he interested in talking particularly about other parties. However he does think that they will get more MPs and that is why NZF has been taking quite a lot of care about candidates.
Speech by Winston Peters at 2pm. Starts as traditional with what NZ First has done in the past.
Looks like he is winding up. Talking about the 21 years of NZ First despite being predicted to be “dog tucker”.
The campaign pitch. Slogan “It’s common sense”
