    Ele, I can’t find your post on the Crafar Farms decision from the High Court.
    I’m struggling also to find one on Bill English’s ‘It’s a guess, not even the best guess’ statement around the asset sales.
    Nothing on McCully’s hacked emails or Key’s problems around the RadioLive programme.
    These are the Key issues of the moment.
    Am I looking in the wrong place?

    Robert – your key (or did you really mean Key?) issues aren’t necessarily mine.

    I don’t comment on every statement or issue and this week have had many other more pleasant distractions than politics – some of which will be the subject of at least one post in the next few days.

    I did a post on the radio programme the day the Electoral Commission made its deliberation public..

    A post on the court ruling on the Crafar farms is under construction for tomorrow.


  3. robertguyton says:

    Excellent, thanks Ele.


  4. Richard says:

    Ele, look forward to the post about Crafar Farms, tomrrow

    My comment was written yesterday so the tomorrow I referred to is today – the post was published this morning – headlined could isn’t would.
