The election so far

This was part of a guest post yesterday, but it is so good, it deserves to stand out on its own:

So, two weeks out from the election, and we have had scandal, theft, authors bought, politicians bought, court cases, people of standing brought down by rumour, lies and innuendo.

We have had seekers of truth vilified, convicted fraudsters idolised, protesters mollified, leaders marginalised, policies ignored so that half truths and skewed reports can be presented as facts, facts presented as lies, lies presented as possibilities and made up facebook conversations presented as facts.

We have had journalists in the main stream media go on record complaining that despite their best efforts, people are not changing their minds.

We have had independent blogs accused of being politically funded and controlled, and politically run blogs who swear they have nothing to do with political parties!

Smoke and mirrors, truth and lies, and in the end, it may all come down to how badly David Cunliffe and the Labour Party tried to introduce a Capital Gains Tax!
