I see that kiwiblogblog – the blog started to try and pull down DPF, has folded. My limited reading of this blog never impressed me, and it always struck me as an exercise in jealousy. The stated reason for folding is that they have done their job, but more likely in my opinion is that the writers have grown up to the point where they realise they’re simply making fools of themselves.
Meanwhile, Kiwiblog goes from strength to strength. It’s certainly improved vastly from it’s early years and David now provides a level of analysis that makes the blog a must read for political people of all stripes. A high ranking blog does not happen by accident, and being the unquestioned top ranked blog for years on end is an incredible achievement.
