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 Malaysia Exposing Our Dodgy Policies On China

Last week, we all owed a vote of thanks to Malaysian PM Mahathir Mohamad for breaking with protocol during his bilateral meeting in Singapore with New Zealand PM Jacinda Ardern. Reportedly, Mahathir used the photo opportunity phase of the meeting – which usually involves just an exchange of smiles and pleasantries before the media is sent out of the room – to launch into matters of genuine substance.

By doing so, Mahathir usefully exposed how New Zealand is trying to make a virtue out of sitting on the fence over the South China Sea dispute. More>>
