    So “Press Gallery Journalist of the Year” is a coin toss between tweedle dum and tweedle dummer.

    It’s probably not a coincidence that they are the most visible polijournos, regularly being on news and current affairs programmes. Some of the best analysis is presented much more quietly and with less drama.

    Sideshow Bob Parker as public servant of the year. Un-fucking-believable. Kiwiblog-ites must be on their annual Christmas grog binge, or else most Kiwiblog-ites are all too busy to vote – except for the Parliamentary PRs and other political hangers on in Wellington who have time on their hands at the moment with MPs off for Christmas.

    Parker is up to his old secretive tricks, eg the big spending revealed today in the Christchurch Press. Key’s backing and advice helped him get back in on the earthquake, and Parker thus will be a liability for National in Christchurch.

    As for the runner-up, the Auditor-General, Lyn Provost, perhaps some posters could elaborate on her work this year.

    Steven Joyce as National MP of the year, yea to that.

    Further on Sideshow Bob Parker’s award. He got at most 225 votes. With the Christchurch City Council staff swollen to thousands, he could have got most of those on command.

    They are shit and they’d fail any respectable journalism course with their personal opinion presented as fact and their predcitions which have all the credibility and post event validation as a fair ground fortune teller.

    Of course Murray, and the average Kiwiblog participant is an impartial rational thinker with no axe to grind.
