    I watched some of the stream.. when it was working OK; Shane LB was by far the most informative.. someone even said he is ‘a walking encylopedia’

    I think the biggest issue, is the total lack of real research & the constant issue, that NZ is trying to ‘Reinvent the Wheel’ on this. We are over a decade behind other OECD countries & yet many of the ‘officials’ seem hesitant to look at their Evidence.

    It even looks like there could be some groups, who are perhaps just looking for excuses to maintain the status quo; because ‘its all just too hard’ OR they have other agendas ?

  3. Thanks for the praise, I’m sitting here with a cider unwinding before my next appointment.
    Looks like I have a lot of work to do on Nicky Wagner and perhaps Matt Doocey. Meeting Shane Reti this afternoon.

      good onya Shane !

      btw; is there a timetable for other sessions ?
      I did not see anything in the parliament website.

      I was a little concerned that the Select committee seems to be only Lab/Nat MPs..
      esp. since Natl seem to have a VERY narrow view on this issue; likely ‘Big Pharma’ only.. if at all ??
