In case anyone is wondering where Barry Soper is, and why he won’t appear on Good Morning tomorrow, the following articles in the New Zealand mainstream media will explain it all:
• M. Houlahan: ‘Senator caught in Peters’ media war’, The New Zealand Herald
• T. Watkins and V. Small: ‘Trade deal wins top US backer’, The Dominion Post
Winston Peters seems to have a different grasp of reality from what all the journalists have, while Barry is calling the New Zealand Foreign Minister’s behaviour the strangest he’s encountered in 26 years of international political reporting.
The Senator mentioned in the headline is neither Republican nor Democrat, but John McCain (just kidding—blame the President if you didn’t like that gag).
We’ll no doubt hear more next week but I’ll see if I can mention this on air! Posted by Jack Yan, 23:39

NoteEntries from 2006 to the end of 2009 were done on the Blogger service. As of January 1, 2010, this blog has shifted to a Wordpress installation, with the latest posts here.
With Blogger ceasing to support FTP publishing on May 1, I have decided to turn these older pages in to an archive, so you will no longer be able to enter comments. However, you can comment on entries posted after January 1, 2010.
