  1. I heard comment this a.m. on NatRadio about Dick Hubbard when Auckland mayor getting opposition from his deputy mayor Dr Bruce Hucker.

    Looked up this link where Dick H says he wasn’t thinking of standing against Banks but considering standing as councillor. He seemed to think well of Len Brown.

    Another private prison bidder damned

    A damning official report on the first privately-managed prison in England further undermines National’s ideological commitment to building a private prison in New Zealand, says Labour Law and Order spokesperson Clayton Cosgrove.

    Clayton Cosgrove said the report by UK Chief Inspector of Prisons Anne Owers into HMP Wolds presented a sorry picture of G4S, one of four firms bidding to run the Mt Eden-Auckland Central Remand Prison.

    Oh, look at that – private business proving itself far worse than government again.

    Snarky piece of anti-student union propaganda on TVOne news tonight. The ‘news’ was that a student didn’t want to pay her subs because she didn’t use any of the services. Hardly worth the 6pm news. But lo, it’s all just a ruse to talk about the Private Member’s Bill to do away with compulsory student unionism. And who appears at the end – Heather (I’m not the leader of ACT…yet) Roy. She was given the final say and her point (that students are the only ones with compulsory unionism) was allowed, therefore, to frame the itme. Yep, they ticked the ‘balanced journalism’ box by interviewing a student president who pointed out everything that the fee pays for. But no one asked the original student, did you really not use any service? Could she defend her position if challenged? The whole thing had the stink of a set up. How did they even find this girl? Let me guess…ACT put them onto her…
