The Hive – Right or Center?

The Hive:

We have been challenged to justify our view that we are not “right wing”.

We are not aligned politically. To our knowledge none of The Hive team are members of any political party. QB certainly insn’t a member of any party.

We fight policy not people (slight exception as far as Winston is concerned).

We have probably praised the PM, Goff and some other Ministers as regularly – or more regularly – than we have any figures in National. Likewise we do not hesitated to criticise National should we disagree with a policy proposal.

Since when is supporting orthodox economic policy right wing?

Um, like, forever!

Seriously though, there’s no way the Hive is a Left wing blog – the first qualification for that is that you have to be (more than) a few short, making claims like “having a referendum is anti-democracy” or constantly ranting about Bush’s no-brainer decision to kick some despotic and/or terrorist  arse.

Well, that’s my observation.

The Hive in contrast, consistently provides great analysis of current topics without one feeling for those under-funded mental health services.

One thing though guys, you’re slipping. You need to get away from those one liner posts, give us some more original content.
