Val and I decided we had to issue an extra release on Miss Universe New Zealand to foreign media. This has not had wide distribution, nor does it need to. We just needed to explain the local culture and the tall poppy syndrome, and show that The Press’s foreign masters have no reason to be patriotic.
Laural has told me that the radio talkback people are mostly on her side, telling the mainstream media to ‘leave me alone’. It shows how out of touch The Press is, but with its HQ in Sydney, I am not surprised.

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.
