The Herald has rated the' opening speech from the throne' a non event with not a mention, preferring instead, pictures of Winston Peters. Such is this paper's disdain for balance and obsession with trivia. However at the drop of a hat, it will print anything the Labour Party sends it - witness Phil Twyford's lame effort here.
Not so Fairfax, which had a summary of the speech up within minutes of delivery.
I'll be very interested to see the next lot of circulation figures, the real ones that is, papers sold - not some botched up bullshit called 'readership.'
