The politicking for the next local body elections have already started.
So, we arise, from our slumber, after three years to once again cover the impending circus.
We’re in no way affiliated with anyone.
We do not have a political persuasion.
In fact, we firmly believe that we do not need a Wellington City Council at all.
We believe that the current Council has achieved nothing, will continue to achieve nothing, and is snagged in a stream by so many left-leaning (and increasingly, right-leaning) wannabe lobby groups that they have no ability to achieve anything more than the odd 100 meters of cycleway for children here and there.
“So much for Objective Journalism. Don’t bother to look for it here–not under any byline of mine; or anyone else I can think of. With the possible exception of things like box scores, race results, and stock market tabulations, there is no such thing as Objective Journalism. The phrase itself is a pompous contradiction in terms.”
