Pip posted this on David Farrar’s Blog yesterday
I am interested that the VP of ACT doesn’t think expropriating someone else’s property is any kind of an issue.
Pip was referring to my cut and paste of some biographical notes on Radical Youth member, John Darroch. I lifted the segment, with slight editing, from Tearaway magazine, but attributed no credit.
Pip’s got me cold. I hold a responsible position in a party that champions private property, so I should have been more principled.
It was basic laziness as I have no problem attributing sources as any regular reader of my blog will know.
I apologise to Tearaway and all readers of this blog.
While on the subject of apologies. I stated some time ago that next time I saw Roger Kerr of the Business Round Table, I would apologise to him for a silly anti BRT article I published some 17 years ago.
Well, I collared him after his speech at the ACT conference on Saturday and did the right thing.
Confession is good for the soul!
