No Right Turn blogs that he believes the NZ First advertisements do breach the as “a reasonable person would regard it as an encouragement to vote for NZ First”. I agree. As Idiot/Savant says it is not a survey, it lays out policy and encourages approval of it.

Poneke has more on the BBC story on which got modified. The reporter denied he did it under pressure, but an activist has blogged she successfully pressured him to change it.

The visible hand in economics looks at fixed vs floating .

The has a solution for China over . It is to rename to Tibet, and declare they are all Tibetians. The PRC Government should see the sense of this now they are running a market economy – you replace a tarnished brand with a more positive brand!

Bernard Hickey has video and a blog post on ’s speech suggesting we are talking ourselves into a . Bernard says we’re not, and if we do have a , it is because we deserve it! Them’s fighting words! It’s a lengthy excellent post with many graphs.

    It’s the disappearing reappearing post! I am sure this was up briefly earlier!

    On topic. I/S has gone off the rails. He used to post well thought out stuff. I often disagreed, but you could see where he was coming from and often he had obviously really thought about it. But now he is stuck in a “Evil National” meme… Especially when it comes to the EFA…

    Disagree Socrates. I/S went off the rails the moment he started blogging, if not well before that. Leftism is a mental disease.

    Leftism is a mental disease… Yes – it’s a weird and dangerous sect full of chinless scarf wearers. Corrosive and cancerous people that think they have the right to force other people to support their lifestyles.

    Who is Poneke anyway? Some sort of MSM journalist who questions global warming.

    The people cracking up over a MSM journo breaking with the fellowship is not surprising. Diversity of MSM opinion is not to be tolerated. It is as ugly as sin.

    Re MR Hickey, is this the same Mr Hickey who was giving all the dairy farmers a peice of his mind in the vain hope they support Fonterra in it’s quest to float on the NZX, I believe he is. Well if it is you Mr Hickey why should we sale our soul to parasites that would be quick to invest in the hard work and land that we sweet over. You stick to your figures we will stick to our livelyhoods. I saw your article in the Farmers Weekly? and I quess so did thousands of others, it seems you may have to try harder next time as many agree as I do ( the vast majority ). Fonterra dosen’t need capital they invest in what they want now without our sayso. I suggest you invest in a good finance company, they seem to have a good nack of dealing with any spare cash, or is this why you are so keen to see Fonterra floated, it represents real assets, real people and real wealth!!!! If you are not that Mr Hickey (I’m sorry)
