Open mike is your post.

It’s open for discussing topics of interest, making announcements, general discussion, whatever you choose.

Comment on whatever takes your fancy.

The usual good behaviour rules apply (see the link to Policy in the banner).

Step right up to the mike…

  1. Does anyone know what’s happened to Pete Bethune?
    His sentencing had been set for 10 June and I’ve heard nothing about him since.

    Just wanted to share my renewed optimism now that the shortest day has been and gone and the sun is finally coming back. (You might need to be a southerner to fully appreciate the passing of the solstice).
    For some reason, I even feel that the tide might just be turning on the fortunes of the right. It’s still very dark, there is a ton of work to be done, but the worst may be over.

    This may be premature but….

      The scale of this failure is monumental.

    • lprent 4.2

      Yeah I wrote a post on that for the NZ context last night using the NYT article. Should be up by now.

    Interesting quote from Allan Hubbard on Natrad (noticed on Hickey’s blog) “I think if Mr Key, who knows me, was in NZ he wouldn’t have done that”
    mmmmmmm……cronyism much? Anything else he “wouldn’t have done” yet to come out of the woodwork?

    Banksie won’t be happy with this: Pro-smacking campaigner joins Auckland mayoralty race. I wonder how much will be shaved off Banksie’s votebank.

    Let’s hope the left will be united and don’t do things like that.
