2007 TransTasman Roll Call - how our MPs performed

2007 TransTasman Roll Call - how our MPs performed in 2007

[See... The Roll Call (PDF)]

Another year is drawing to and end it’s time to take a long hard look at just how well our Members of Parliament have done during the past 12 months.

Attached with this email is the 2007 TransTasman Roll Call, which measures how our MPs performed in 2007. Two files are attached – the full list in PDF format and a word document that lists MPs from within your circulation area.

Now in its fourth year, Roll Call is put together by TransTasman’s team of experienced editors and political commentators.

Roll Call looks at how well they’ve performed in Caucus, Cabinet, Committee, the House and Electorates, and the influence they bring to bear in various forums. The 2007 Roll Call takes into account Labour’s new Cabinet portfolios.

If you’d like additional information or to interview TransTasman publisher Max Bowden please contact me.

You may wish to let your readers know that the full list can also be viewed at www.transtasman.co.nz

Binoy Kampmark: Foreseeable Risk: Omicron Makes Its Viral Debut
It has been written about more times than any care to remember. Pliny the Elder, that old cheek, told us that Africa always tended to bring forth something new: Semper aliquid novi Africam adferre. The suggestion was directed to hybrid animals, but in the weird pandemic wonderland that is COVID-19, all continents now find themselves bringing forth their types, making their contributions. It just so happens that it’s southern Africa’s turn... More>>



Gasbagging In Glasgow: COP26 And Phasing Down Coal

Words can provide sharp traps, fettering language and caging definitions. They can also speak to freedom of action and permissiveness. At COP26, that permissiveness was all the more present in the haggling ahead of what would become the Glasgow Climate Pact... More>>

Globetrotter: Why Julian Assange’s Inhumane Prosecution Imperils Justice For Us All

When I first saw Julian Assange in Belmarsh prison, in 2019, shortly after he had been dragged from his refuge in the Ecuadorean embassy, he said, “I think I am losing my mind.”
He was gaunt and emaciated, his eyes hollow and the thinness of his arms was emphasized by a yellow identifying cloth tied around his left arm... More>>

Dunne Speaks: Labour's High Water Mark
If I were still a member of the Labour Party I would be feeling a little concerned after this week’s Colmar Brunton public opinion poll.
