Labour’s bright new star and youngest MP, Jacinda Arden will be speaking at Drinking Liberally Palmerston North next Friday (I’ll do a reminder closer to the time). Jacinda was fantastic at Backbenches on Wednesday, so if you’re in the Palmerston North area, I recommend you get along to see her.

More than a chance to listen to great speakers, Drinking Liberally is a great chance to meet other lefties, get involved, and launch new ideas. DL Palmy even held a series of debates for the Rangatikei candidates before the election, while Both Eyes Open grew out of connections established at DL Wellington. Get along to one if you can.

Ok, so details.

What: Drinking Liberally Palmerston North

Where: Legends Bar (the old railway hotel, aka scarifies, aka 275 Main street Palmerston North – Over the road from TeManuwa)

When: Friday 28th November 7:30pm

Who: Jacinda Arden and a bunch of good fellas and fellesses.

    I think she is going to be appearing on Breakfast as well with Nicki Kaye (in the regular slot Darren Hughes & Paula Bennett used to have)? I haven’t heard either of them speak, so will look forward to that.

    She was good on Backbenches… And thats IMO Plus one of the film crew of the show cause I spun a yarn with him.

    Should be a good event!

    Both Jacinda and Nikki were on Breakfast this morning. Both were very impressive. I haven’t heard Jacinda speak before, but she is very articulate and has a very strong, distinctive voice. Is she a trained singer, by any chance?

    So because lefties go to DL, the people there are “good fellas and fellesses”?

    I’d hate to see what bigoted remarks you would say about the people who go to right-wing events.

    I say this as a fellow ‘rightie and member of the VRWC’… stop being so precious – you look ridiculous.

  6. sarah, false premise and logic error.

    I didn’t say the are goof fellas and fellasses because they’re leftwing

    nor did i say only leftwingers are good fellas and fellasses

    your behaviour might suggest that is, in fact, the case

    but, on the other hand, Phil et al tend to refute

    If I could be so rude as to point out the following: It’s Rangitikei, not Rangatikei.;
    It’s Scarfies, not scarifies;
    It’s Te Manawa, not Te Manuwa.

    Auckland DL won’t be happening tomorrow but we are hoping to let people know by the end of the week about our Xmas special in a couple of weeks’ time 🙂
