Drew from Tararua District

Its been reported that a National MP advised the media that John Key was phoning around gathering support for Chris Luxon to be elected party leader at the upcoming caucus meeting on Tuesday. This was immediately denied by John Key and the original story corrected by the media.

Three things are highlighted by this saga

1) National are at it again with their MP's running to the media every opportunity they get with no loyalty to the party that put them into parliament. In the real world of commercial reality such behaviour would get hem fired.

2) who ever it was got their facts wrong. Surely they should have checked before making any statements to anyone let alone the media.

3) typical media behavour, print before checking the facts, simply lazy journalism or perhaps some personal attitudes at play.

I'm finding it harder and harder to support a party that can't control its members and further its members display this type of unprofessional behaviour

Real Art: An Exhibition by Gael and Allen Gamble

The Feilding & District Art Society

The Feilding and District Art Society presents Real Art: an exhibition by Allen and Gael Gamble.

A prolific pair of artists, Allen and Gael work across subjects and mediums. For this exhibition, their works will be presented as three distinct sections comprising artwork that will be enjoyed by people of all ages and interests. Visitors will see farmyard animals cast in delightful pastels, as well as enjoying cartoons in the style of Thelwell. Also on display will be scenery from around the country, inspired by the works of Davella Gore, and ink and wash images of urban landscapes. Those with an interest in object art will also rejoice at the sight of 19th century soldiers cast in alloy and painted by hand.

With the Gambles together exhibiting over 60 works drawn from across their combined oeuvre, Real Art offers something for everyone and will be a true feast for the eyes - an exhibition not to be missed.
