Politics politics politics,

sort of. Have just returned from the last part of the hikoi protesting asset sales, being the march from Te Papa to the grounds of parliament. It's a Friday and Wellington was still able to muster, I'm guessing at least 3000 people. try that on a Friday in Auckland, you'd probably get a third of that.

It says something dire about the state our media, I think, that you could wander into shops afterwards and have shop assistants ask you "what all that was about?" Seriously, multiple thousands of people and still... <sigh>

It's both good that they're doing it and depressing that they have to, but it's led to an offshoot of Occupy to come to the conclusion that they need to set up their own media distribution channels. One hopes it works and shall watch, with interest.
