Blog Bits

  1. Liberty Scott responds to No Right Turn on why the regional fuel tax was a bad idea.
  2. Kiwi Pundit blogs a BBC poll from Iraq where “Eighty-four percent of Iraqis now rate security in their own area positively, nearly double its August 2007 level. Seventy-eight percent say their protection from crime is good, more than double its low. Three-quarters say they can go where they want safely – triple what it’s been.” I seem to recall Obama arguing against the surge saying it would not work.
  3. David Beatson blogs at Pundit on the latest woes in Corrections.
  4. Steven Price lambasts the same Corrections Department for their failure to be able to provide basic information under the OIA. They could not even answer the question “How many positive drug tests were there at Auckland prison in the last year” claiming that answering this would require substantial collation or research. This suggests they are either incompetent or lying.
  5. Not a blog item, but Pauline Hanson’s ex husband has confirmed the photos published are not of her. Hanson may now win the by-election in a sympathy vote.
  6. Annie Fox proposes a monthly Bloggers Bar Bash in Auckland – the first Thursday of every month starting at 6.30 pm at Galbraiths.
  7. Stephen Franks proposes that shareholders not Directors should approve Directors Fees.
  8. Barnsley Bill is suspicious that 11% of The Standard’s Alexa traffic comes from India. I’m not – it is probably just all the call centre staff there who work for NZ companies!
