The good fellas and fellaresses of Drinking Liberally Palmerston North have organised three debates for the Rangatikei electorate. These will be the only candidate debates in the electorate, so really great to see DL making it happen.

The debates are:

2 November, 7pm
Feilding – Senior citizens hall, Bowen street

3 November, 7pm
Marton – Rangitikei College Library

5 November, 7pm
Taumarunui – Cossie Club 10 Maramiri Street

There are persistant rumours of DL Wellington organising a Wellington Central debate too but I’ve yet to hear confirmation on time and place.

    Why bother with another Wellington Central one, the Franks would probably just do another no show.

    Well done those DLers! I hope they go well 🙂

    Good stuff – props to Palmy!

    The Wgtn Central candidates are holding a debate/meeting at “Red Tomatoes” in Kelburn this Sunday, 7.30pm

    Can we have a black deaf midget rights’ debate and see if Franks will turn up? At least you know Marc Ellis will…

  5. And Simon Power has just pulled out, saying that he was “misled” about who was organising the debates. They’ll go ahead, but Rangitikei voters will have no chance to assess their incumbent MP.

    Hopefully he’ll suffer for it.

    Brave Sir Robin ran away.
    Bravely ran away, away!
    When danger reared its ugly head,
    He bravely turned his tail and fled.
    Yes, brave Sir Robin turned about
    And gallantly he chickened out.
    Bravely taking to his feet
    He beat a very brave retreat,
    Bravest of the brave, Sir Robin!

    HE is attending now, having had an apology. I doubt it would have hurt him too much anyway. He is an immensely popular MP in the electorate.
