I was supposed to have been doing some sort of a year end round up this week... didn't happen, unfortunately. Too much programming (eeeeek).

But I do have something interesting to report. A few weeks back, following a link d_h gave me, I found out something interesting.

Now, 2008 will probably go down in history as the Year of the Rickroll. However, this isn't quite as original as I'd thought it was. Because, it seems, on 2002 (3rd September, to be precise), one Metiria Turei, M.P., Richrolled the New Zealand Parliament.

Note spelling. This time, it wasn't Rick Astley, but Richard von Sturmer, who was done that singular honour. (Scroll down to the bottom of that page to read the full details).

And here is the speech in question..

That's bloody impressive actually! It puts some things into words that I sensed subconsiously, but couldn't really explain. Hmmmmm. Glad I didn't waste my vote.

An impressive thing indeed.

I've had Mark Servian stay at mine during McGillicuddy Serious Party campaigns. Ah, those were the days, eh?
