dlnzThe Drinking Liberally empire keeps on growing. Tomorrow there’s an event in Wellington, and Dannevirke, the newest chapter, has its first event on Saturday.

I’m not sure if the people in Dannevirke have hooked into the DL Facebook organisation but it’s great they’ve got it started. They’ll have Rick Barker, Labour’s buddy MP for Wairarapa along for a chat. Looking for kick off from about 6pm on Saturday, August the 8th at the Mangatera Hotel, 391 High Street, Dannevirke. Hope you have fun out there!

[Oh crap, DL Dunedin was on last night. Flick an email around guys, some people (like us) forget to check Facebook]

    Bloody hell! Good work Dannevirke!! Why can’t the Auckland crew get their act together ? Do they need a hand?

      We’re all too damn busy…. In my case with 80+ hour weeks at work and servers that do not like some of the load the blog gives it.

        if you’re keen to help up in Auckers, BLiP you should offer to help Lynn or Julie out. contacts are in the facebook group

    Don’t knock the idea of DL in small towns. There were around 1,000 votes for Labour and Greens in Dannevirke booths last November – every one playing as much part in electing MPs as votes in Auckland or Wellington.

    And that’s without counting specials / votes in advance / Maori roll. Strength to all DL teams.

      I don’t think anyone’s mocking it, personally I think it’s choice you guys have set one up there.

  3. Score one for Dannevirke!

    I guess its all that Scandinavian blood, I hear it makes you really progressive.
