08wire.org - smartest political fun in the galaxy

Introducing 08wire.org - The smartest political fun in the galaxy

The most trusted no names in political news - the un-named creators of 2005's KeepLeftNZ.org - return to web this week with an expanded roster and with 08Wire.org.

Featuring 360 degree, fair and balanced, rapid-fire situational analysis, 08Wire.org is the only New Zealand political news you need this election season.

KeepLeftNZ was widely credited by the creators of KeepLeftNZ with having clinched the re-election of Helen Clark's Labour-led government three years ago.

"We said to New Zealanders, give us a Labour-Progressive-Green Government," the creators said. "And New Zealanders did exactly that, minus the Green bit, plus Peters and Dunne, and with a rather larger National opposition than originally anticipated.

"This election season, we're back and once again we're ready to ensure the election of an LPG Government. Our internal polling shows we're right on track for that outcome.

“We’re also inviting all lefties to become official Facebook fans of Team LPG. Wear your virtual heart on your virtual sleeve! Details at 08wire and other good left-leaning websites near you.

"With daily updates, video commentary, serious issue analysis, and scandal mongering, 08wire will tell the stories other news sites are either too scared, stupid, or respectable to go near."
