Citizen A on line now

Citizen A this week with bloggers Cameron Slater and Phoebe Fletcher

Issue one: Phil Goff gave his state of the Nation address in New Lynn while John Key gave his in Henderson, Goff says the fist $5000 will be tax free while John Key wants to privatize assets and implement austerity measures. No one can pretend that National and Labour are fighting over the centre ground any more. Who won?

Issue two: Did Rodney Hide's concession to appoint 38 unelected Maori to Auckland Council committees just cost ACT the Epsom seat?

Issue three tonight: Len wants Auckland to be a Green city with a target to reduce CO2 emissions by 40% - Great idea or wanky nonsense?

Citizen A plays on screen 7pm Thursday on Triangle and 8pm Sunday Sky 89 & Freeview 21

This may be in keeping with Lord Palmerstons dictum on international real-politik,Nations have no permanent friends or allies,they only have permanent interests.

The Obama administration has 'set out' "the promotion of democracy" in the middle east as an aim of its foreign policy.It was one of the new presidents five key themes in the cairo speech of 2009 entitled a new beginning.

Thus we have Clintons hurried caveat, we don't want to see some 'takeover' that would lead "not to democracy but to oppression".
