following the success of anderton and dunne in getting the courts to force tv3 to include them in the leaders debates we have such luminaries as that guy from destiny..and one from the ashes of capills’ party et al clamouring for the same access..
and if you use the same logic the judge did in finding for dunne and anderton..you’d have to say they have a case..aarrgghh!
and that is where it gets silly…that judge really blew-it…..surely it is up to the private broadcaster to decide who they interview..not a bloody law court…(the viewers reward or punish tv3 for their actions..or lack of them…surely motivation enough for them..?.)
i see sky, and radio new zealand and other media outlets are advertising ‘leaders debates’…should we now expect a flurry of lawsuits against them demanding access for desty and cappy as well….?…or else they could/should just stop calling them ‘leaders’ debates’ (how about ‘up-close with ?.)…. what a joke..
expect to see a revival of the mcgilligudy serious party…. just to ‘play’ with this….
(and do we really want to see dunne do his platitude, platitude..homily, homily..cliche, cliche..faux nationalism..platitude, platitude routine again..?..aarrgghh!)
