Wellington Mayoral Entertainment preferences

October 10th, 2013 at 12:00 pm by David Farrar

The Dom Post has asked the Mayoral candidates for their favourite movies, books etc.

Out of the six responses for each category, the item I prefer the most is:

  • Film – The Shawshank Redemption (John Morrison)
  • TV – The West Wing (Nicola Young)
  • Music – Elton John (John Morrison)
  • Website – Kiwiblog (Nicola Young) :-)
  • Hobby – Road trips (Jack Yan)
  • Author/Book – Biographies (John Morrison)
  • Game – Five Hundred (Nicola Young)
  • Sport – Kayaking (Celia Wade-Brown) to do, Rugby (Rob Goulden) to watch
No tag for this post.

    Pity they didn’t ask about local music – it’s always fun seeing middle-aged political candidates desperately trying to remember the name of some hip band teenagers listen to.

    I see John Morrison doesn’t just stick to biographies, he prefers bios of ‘inspirational leaders’. Yawn.
    Nicola Young for that category also with a Maurice Gee novel.
    for Auberon – Nicola Young is the National Party candidate.

    Suspect the website preferences were chosen with a politicians eye rather than actual preference, though Jack Yan did choose his own.

    Film choices were not great CWB’s was awful and so PC. Yan chose The Italian Job the Michael Caine, Noel Coward version, Nicola Young chose Casablanca both better choices than CWB and Morrison.

    Music, Elton John – Ye gods and little fishes, why not Queen or Lou Reed. I think CWB was the only one to name an NZ group

    The Indian guy seems to be the only one with consistently good taste.

    They need to watch some genuinely respected movies like: Abbott and Costello Meet Frankenstein or Abbott and Costello Meet the Mummy or Abbott and Costello Meet the Killer, Boris Karloff
