Selwyn interviewed on sedition

Tim Selwyn, the man convicted of sedition -- sedition; in peacetime; in 2006! --for issuing a somewhat unconventional press release explaining why he broke Helen Clark's window just finished a twelve-minute interview on the verdict on bFM's Wire. Link here. My own comment from last week here on the judgement, and the Crown's choice to take this to trial.

Given that a jury gets to estimate a defendant from their demeanour, and some of you have questioned Tim's judgement, it should be worth a listen if you want to pass judgement yourself, or at least inform the judgement you have.
