KNOCK ME DOWN WITH A FEATHER

I have said a number of times that the only blogger on the 'left' that I have any time for is Chris Trotter.   We have met occasionally. He is, without doubt, 'old Labour' and proud of it.    His writings on Bowalley Road are thoughtful and without rancor.   In short, I'd enjoy discussing life with him over a beer (or a chardonnay).  

But you could have knocked me down with a feather to read his article here where he names Bill English as his politician of the year.   

Not sure how they go about excommunication on planet left.

Yes, I have always enjoyed reading Mr Trotter. While now and again he gets a bit carried away, he is usually very close to the bone in his political analysis of the Greens and Labour.

sure you do. Traditionally an icepick to the back of the head, or in NZ, an unforeseen accident with shipping crane or a mine lift...
