New libertarian blogs launched

A new libertarian sort-of-blog called 'Speakeasy' has been launched by Julian Pistorius and Helen Hughes (aka Hooch Helen), Libz candidates respectively for Northland and Whangarei. They describe it as a web newsletter, hard copies of which are distributed around their electorates. A blog 'engine' for the site is promised soon. I suspect most readers of this blog will understand the connection between Speakeasies and Prohibition.

Their first issue checks out the connection between Anzaz Day and the attempted closing of Orauta School.

And Richard Goode from beNZylpiperazine is now blogging at LibertyNZ, where others including Philip and Luke Howison are soon to join him.

Perhaps they've been reading about political blogging here, even if NBR did get it wrong "that Act and the Greens are the first two parties to have a sophisticated online presence." Is 'Not PC' - which predated the Frog - just too unsophisticated for NBR? Croak!

  1. While this subject can be very touchy for most people, my opinion is that there has to be a middle or common ground that we all can find. I do appreciate that you've added relevant and intelligent commentary here though. Thank you!
