We're going to have an election

So now we know. Eight weeks away. Four weeks of campaigning for the major parties - that's one bonus, I guess, though with Winnie starting on Sunday we'll still be subjected to nearly two whole months of xenophobic ranting.

The big question now is, when will Don release National's economic policies. He's been hedging like there's no tomorrow, claiming he'll release them when Helen announces a date, so now that she's announced he has to release them in short order or look like a total wally. Not that he doesn't already, but the effect will be magnified.

I wonder if anyone will manage to pin Don down on the matter of sending troops to Iraq. He's useless at dodging questions subtley.

SteveI'm not sure why Helen is so obsessed over the issue of troops in Iraq. You can argue that we only have one serious combat unit in New Zealand and that is our SAS. They were deployed to Afghanistan very shortly after the start of the war and were also deployed to Iraw as well. She herself sent our troops to war. Fullstop. For her to sit there and accuse Don of selling out to the Americans is just hypocrisy. The rest of our army are merely peace keepers called in when a bridge needs building somewhere..

Shocking as it may be, I think, and sometimes those thoughts are almost worthy of public contemplation. So, here are those some thoughts, with no guarantees as to their validity, worth, or utility to the cosmos.
