Unlock The Doors (Part II)

The Scoop readers are a discerning and rightly pedantic bunch and a number have been quick to point out an error in “Politics: Unlock The Doors” published earlier.

The phrase “The liquor debate votes were from my memory the first use of the ‘personal’ vote since the 1996 election.” is wrong. There have been a number, but none as much fun as the liquor debate or the ‘old days’.

Put the deeply regreted error down to an old man’s teary eyed nostalgia.

Looking on the bright side, we assume that from the sudden outpouring of messages on this point, we must be getting a lot more right.

As ever, feedback is welcomed.
