Little Ardern About Being An Odd Couple

My main computer is playing up so I did this with a pen dipped in Indian Ink and then painted it with watercolour, and took a photo with my iPhone to send onto the Internet. Harry Hack will track the Election in his time honoured way using shorthand and his faithful old digital camera.

Sidewalk Flowers

If you know a child aged 3 to 7, I warmly recommend you get this book. It is beautifully composed and illustrated - and as one reviewer wrote, it reminds us what a child sees when we adults are busy doing other things.

Moggy Crabapple

This is my version of an illustration by Molly Crabtree, a New York artist who wrote a biographical book called "Drawing Blood". Google her name and check out her website, it is well worth a visit.

Here They Come Again!

I expect 2017 to be a watershed year for NZ's politics. Time will tell if the ripple effect of Brexit in Europe and Trump in the USA will reach New Zealand. Will the Forgotten People and (in Hilary Clinton's words) the Deplorables get out and vote and move the country towards the Populist Right. It is also an election year without the master of opinion poll surfing -  ex centrist conservative Prime Minister John Key. Perhaps he could see what is coming.

For those unfamiliar with NZ politics. The Greens leaders are flying the ballon. Conservatives in blue, semi socialist in pink, national populist black and white, neoliberal yellow tie and Maori with green stone war club (Taiaha) - and oddball Peter Dunn (top right) who goes wherever the wind blows and has done very little apart from propping up conservative policies..

Another Neoliberal Trickle Down Year Has Passed By
