  1. […] The NZ Herald has a Digipol out this morning. I’ve blogged it on Curiablog. […]

  2. It is high time for those parts of the media who have been waging a manufactured campaign to impugn the character and quality of our elected Prime Minster to back off and be supportive of the policies which are working for New Zealand under the best leader we have. The main stream media MUST NOT be allowed to sabotage the People’s will by manufactured innuendo.
