Bits between the teeth

Some quick newsbites for today

  • Green MP Sue Kedgley clearly is flogging a sensationalistic horse to get more attention for the Green Party - claiming that New Zealand is lagging behind developing a plan for dealing with Avian Influenza. A quick google for "New Zealand Pandemic Plan" identifies a number of plans in place, including a rather new Infectious Disease Plan. This must be part of a concerted effort to attempt to show that they are not a special interest party.
  • And Telecom is attracting more heat from the Communications Commissioner. Only problem here is that Telecom is being encouraged to become a wholesaler. As events last week show, if the wholesaler fails, they take all the retailers with them. Grow some balls Douglas and threaten Telecom with Local Loop Unbundling. We need competition in the backbone as well to avoid repeats of incidents like last week.

And it seems there is at least one other that agrees with me.
