Christmas at Capital E Once Upon a Time ….

Media release: December 2007

Christmas at Capital E Once Upon a Time ….

You’re invited to travel back in time to a Christmas of yesteryear ….

The Main Hall at Capital E will be transformed into a vintage Christmas scene-scape, transporting you back to a Victorian-era Yule-tide. Wander through a snowy London street filled with candlelight and coal-fires, mistletoe and magic. As you stroll down the Christmas High Street you can window-shop to your hearts’ content. Soak up the Noel seasons’ sights, sounds and smells as you explore our Christmas past. You can even take a peek into Scrooge’s bedroom!

There’s also a lot to do. Children will have the opportunity interact with live characters from the Victorian era and hear stories about their life. They will also be able to make traditional Christmas crackers and decorations, use a turn of the century printing press to make their own olden-time greeting cards and sing carols around the pinola, and much much more …

In this Victorian Christmas you’ll discover where so many of today’s Christmas traditions come from!

Gordon Campbell: On National Spreading Panic About The Economy

It is a political strategy as old as time. Scare the public with tales of disaster and stampede them into supporting your ideological agenda because they believe There Is No Alternative. Yet, if the NZ economy truly is as “fragile” as PM Christopher Luxon says it is... Then how come New Zealand has enjoyed a double AA+ credit rating from the international rating agencies for so long? If we have truly been in the thrall of incompetent tax, spend and borrow extremists for the past six years, how come our net government debt burden is only in the middling average of OECD countries, and how come our government debt-to-GDP ratio – however you measure it – is less than half the average for the Asia-Pacific region?..
