Tumeke.Blogspot.Com Puts Iti Flag On Own Auction

Saturday 1 July 2006

Tumeke.blogspot.com puts Iti flag on own auction - TUMEKE! - Check the current bid

"Seeing as Trade Me has shut the auction down, we will do one on his behalf and present him with the highest bidder's contact details" - Mr Bradbury & Mr Selwyn.

Bomber Bradbury - NZ Listener's "most opinionated man in New Zealand" and host of TV3's award-nominated current affairs show Stake-out, has entered the blogosphere with Tim Selwyn - the country's only convicted seditious writer.

Resident guest blogger, Bomber Bradbury, says TUMEKE! is daily news and information source that is replacing other forms of media as a more open format for discussing issues free of corporate control:

"It is important that the voice of the opposing view is not lost for politically motivated reasons," says Mr Bradbury.

Creator and editor, Tim Selwyn, says:

"It's just another failure to communicate and reactionary nonsense. Pakeha have failed to see the event through Maori eyes it seems from the official response. A right-wing conservative politician laid the complaint after baiting the dopey Police Minister in Parliament - who said not only should he lay a complaint - but that he was sure there would be a conviction! The whole thing is outrageous.

I support any effort to appeal this verdict."

Mr Selwyn doubled the original bid of $100 from the site hosting the auction and says he will refer the highest bidder on TUMEKE! to that site.: "I hope it makes it to the Supreme Court - if that's what it takes. If the auction helps with the costs then great."

The blog's brother site www.tumeke.org offers complimentary in-depth and magazine-style content including a background on the Iti trial.

Join the argument.

Gordon Campbell: On The New Pike River Agency (And The Air Strike Wing)

Much of the sympathy the public still feels for the families of the Pike River miners has been sustained by the sense that the previous government – let alone the mining company and the processes of receivership and litigation – has never dealt honestly, or fairly, with them.

Finally, yesterday’s announcement by the Ardern government that a new state agency will be set up to assess and plan the manned re-entry to the mine (on a set timetable) goes a long way to meeting the families’ remaining request: that they be enabled, if at all possible, to bury their loved ones.
