Is this Jordan Carters proposal for the new board of directors for the East India Company in line with his involving the lower levels business in the decision making?

No, it's the apparent source of information for the NZ Herald, Dominion Post, etc.

Dang, and here I thought it was another E-bay auction, maybe with Helen's face in it or something.

Nice one AL, but I thought the tea leaves were for all of us to help find a government.
Tea leaves are certainly being more reliable than MSM predictions.
But I thought the journos got their inspiration and their instructions from their glorious leader, who has failed to come up with something after , what is it, 4 weeks!!
BTW, I was talking to a journo last night and Helen is off to some conference in Papua New Guinea shortly.

The Instapundit linked again today. Another 4,300 unique visits, and still another 9 hours to go.

Great. First the Smurfs, now Asterix:

In a controversial departure, author and illustrator Albert Uderzo introduces [in a new book] creatures from outer space who visit the famous village on the Brittany coast in search of its strength-inducing magic potion.
The creatures are led by a cuddly toy who has at his beck and call an army of dim superman clones in tights and capes.
They announce they are from a planet called TADSYLWINE - an anagram of Walt Disney - and that their "sage" goes by the name of HUBS - an anagram of Bush.

Is nothing sacred?

Oh, and get this:

The moral of the story - clearly aimed at voices of pessimism in modern-day France - is that against the alien forces of globalisation, true Gallic values will prevail.

At least it's a comedy...

The man is a fool and was only every the paint brush behind the brain.

When Coscinny died so did Asterix.

Here's the event Helen plans to attend- unless Don ends up going instead.
The Pacific Islands Forum Conference during October 25-29.
My journo friend, who is a lefty, says Helen is different to the other PMs.
While Bolger, Jenny Shipley, etc, would go to the back of the plane and chat with the journos- Helen doesn't, preferring to stay at the front.
Jennie Shipley was like "a mother hen", mothering and looking after the press pack, my veteren scribe told me.
And in case you are interested, my journo friend was supposed to be staying in one of the nicer hotels in Port Moresby.
But either the PNG or the NZ government cancelled his booking, and the alternative accomodation for the media, is a brothel!!ttp://www.fsmgov.org/press/pr06210d.htm
