I hope everybody had a very Merry Christmas, Oy! Hannuka, and a Merry Kwanzaa season...
I had a good time, despite working over Christmas... we made our own fun in the office, and still managed to scoff a huge Chrissy lunch.

Police found Pete Hodgson guilty of "technical assault", when he grabbed the arm of student Madeline Flannagan, while she was protestesting at Otago University during this year's election campaign. However they say the offence was minor, and no further action will be taken.
Hodgson says he's glad the issue's over, claiming it was a political stunt from beginning to end. Flannagan's also happy with the result, claiming the police investigation vindicates her, and proves what she said was true.
It follows the decision by Police not to charge Dundin South MP David Benson-Pope recently, despite finding a prima-facie case against him, in relation to charges of bullying and brutality while he was a teacher at Bayfield High School).
