David Farrar at Kiwiblog is trying to wash off some of the stench of Dirty Politics.
Best quote “I don’t believe that the book shows me having acted in any way inappropriately.” So “Princess Parties” are perfectly appropriate for David:
His action points for cleaning up his sewer (after the election of course) are populated by weasel words like “substantially”, “Generally”, ” more often” and “tougher”.
Expect business as usual at Kiwiblog.
[Update: For the record, I note that Farrar now denies the allegation in Dirty Politics that he organised the “Princess Party”, though he did attend. As to why writers sometimes choose to remain anonymous, such as me on this occasion, look no further than the climate of intimidation created by the Nats’ attack politics machine. Who needs that kind of filth, I don’t.]
