Here’s one bloke with both ears open who uses no capital letters or punctuation marks and doesn’t understand the difference between stereo and arche. That’s what we got from nine years of labour, NCEA and teachers’ unions.
Very interesting to say the least. There is obviously a pretty big campaign within the Labour Strategy to delve into more social media…
Clare & BIG Trev Twitter up a storm… Have had some fun vice versa’s with them on Twitter. However it seems that most of what is posted is not really relevant to the state of the country in my opinion…
Will be interesting to see where the happy medium is in regards to social media….
We need solutions or attempted solutions, i.e. policies not just muckraking and BS…. I do applaud Clare for the fact that she can stand up and say she thinks the itsnot wen thingy is basically BS…
I flew from Auckland to Christchurch on Thursday, was sitting next to Shane Smith, have to say I actually quite enjoy yarning to him, I feel at times he is so in the wrong party. I am in primary production, so for me he has a good understanding of the primary sector, he does come from a farm… I spoke about the whole Labour Social Media thing, it would be fair to say it is not up Shane Jones alley…
Oh woe! An MP daring to detach from the hive mind and express an opinion based on her personal beliefs!!
Why next thing you know, they’ll be voting their conscience and representing us voters rather than genuflecting to Phil, John, and the boys in the backroom.
This is precisely the way an MP should operate… seeking views from the public in order to inform her own views on a topic, then (hopefully) acting accordingly.
Typically Labour (and Curran) that it’s about their own media image rather than anything substantial… but having said that, it’s hardly something to be discouraged. At least not if you’re going to come here and complain (as most of us do from time to time) that the bastards don’t give a damn what we think.
Dunno how many times you’ve played it ropes2 and it might be pretty basic game-wise but you have to play it several times to get all the scenarios. http://lets-not.co.nz
The point is to see where those choices take you. So it has a modicom of game-ness to it. From my limited epxerience. I have two kids and they thought it was pretty funny, even if I didn’t. #letsnot fight about it

Heh; Kids think that Let’s Not is funny, but Clare Curran, an adult and Labour MP doesn’t. She also described Trevor Mallard’s challenge to WO yesterday as “bullshit blokey stuff”. There’s obviously some tension between Ms Curran and Mr Mallard at the moment; whyever might that be?
Wtf gives you the right to get cross at people, you’ve mislead into thinking it’s game they’re clicking on, when it’s a propaganda ploy!!? Seriously, stand down and get a real job at a supermarket or something, where ethical expectations arent required.
Not going too well for Curran, quite entertaining watching her being so out of touch.
The last scene in the last series of Blackadder- Blackadder Goes Forth.
Blackadder and his troops have received orders that at 12 o’clock they are to rise up out of the trenches and charge the German lines.
Blackadder knows that he and his men will die in a hail of bullets within seconds of sticking their heads up.
This reminds me of the New Zealand labour party, they know they are going to get slaughtered, –,-the Blackadder scene was quite moving, the impending labour slaughter is gladdening my heart, the shelf serving swine who did nothing for New Zealand in 9 years are going to get the worst arse kicking they have ever had and they have had a few.
Annie – the link you put up wasn’t the original one DPF linked to – can’t remember exactly the original one, but more based on social media, and from memory her dissatisfaction with being a member of Parliament. The second message was referring to the “lets-not” game site.
