We do note however that the Rod Oram who wrote the piece in the SST is the same Rod Oram who spoke to the assembled few in Auckland at Drinking Liberally, promoted by The Standard this week. We note this:
REMINDER: Drinking Liberally is on 7pm tomorrow (Wednesday) night. Speaker is Rod Oram on global economic crisis. London Bar, corner Queen & Wellesley Streets, Auckland CBD. All lefties welcome - please pass this invite on.
A leftie journo preaching to the converted - says it all really, doesn't it.
