Pundit

Four new voices join the Pundit lineup

Pundit has always tried to be a site that encourages thoughtful debate and conversation, covering all manner of viewpoints.

The point at which Pundit gets all meta, with a post commenting on another post ... or, my thoughts on Tim's initial thoughts on the Ewen Macdonald trial verdict.

I was going to write a post of my own on the Macdonald/Guy trial verdict (interesting question - should murder trials be known by the name of the victim or the accused?) But then that busy little beaver Tim Watkin beat me to it.

Wrapping up this year and looking ahead a bit to the next

The year's winding right down now, and thanks the stars 2011 is over. Happy to see it go by. Eleanor and I are off for a few days at the beach before our second child is due.

The other pundits are all able to post if they can muster the energy – thanks for your work today Mike! But I imagine it'll be meagre bloggy rations here at Pundit for the next week or so.

Free stuff--Win two tickets to the Big Day Out with Pundit

Tool. Iggy Pop. Primal Scream. This year's Big Day Out big names have all been doing the business for at least 20 years. Or in Iggy's case, a whole lot longer.

Adding the all-important local, younger flavour are The Naked and Famous, Kids of 88, Bic Runga and Shihad, who will perform every song from their 1999 album The General Electric.
