I wonder why, thought nobody.
National MP Mike Sabin has resigned.
In a statement released at midday he said he made the decision due to personal issues that were best dealt with outside Parliament.
He would not be making any more comment. There have been allegations that he was at the centre of a police investigation.
His resignation would force a by-election in the Northland electorate just months after the general election. Former policeman Sabin is a second term MP, having being elected on an anti-P platform.
Gods, would be amazing if Marama got into Parliament, She is gold.
The Green Party has called a short-notice press conference for 11am.
Green MPs are “in a cone of silence on pain of death”, by one account, on the topic of the mystery presser.
If a member of caucus is resigning, Marama Davidson is next on the Greens’ list.
NBR Politics Editor Rob Hosking will cover events as they unfold.
For me, the last scene of ‘Angels in America’sums up his humanity, and fierce intelligence.
Finding this very hard to write. So much of his art has moved me deeply. And, by gods, he created so much on stage and screen.

Best Revival Nominee ‘The Mystery Of Edwin Drood’ Refused Permission To Perform At Tony Awards 2013.
Very strange choice.
Although the Roundabout Theatre Company’s recent Broadway revival of The Mystery of Edwin Drood received five 2013 Tony nominations, including one for Best Revival of a Musical, the acclaimed production will not perform on the upcoming Tony telecast.
Stephanie J. Block, a 2013 Tony nominee for her performance in the title role of Drood, posted via Twitter May 29: “We will not be performing. Trust us… We want to. It’s just not ‘in the cards’ this year.”
Spokespersons for Roundabout and The Tony Awards could not confirm the news to Playbill.com.
The troupers of Rupert Holmes’ The Mystery of Edwin Drood, one of the best-reviewed musicals of the 2012-13 Broadway season, packed their trunks after the March 10 matinee. The extended run ended following 28 previews and 136 regular performances at Studio 54.
Whoever wrote out the credits could handle “Debra.” They didn’t blink at “Katharine.” But “Anjelica,” somehow, was just too tough… and whether this was NBC’s way of confirming that it just can’t wait to shuffle Smash off the air or Smash‘s way of signaling complete and utter defeat, the mistake still hasn’t been corrected on Hulu. La Huston’s name is, however, spelled correctly in the opening credits sequence that kicked off the finale’s first hour.
Update: A source tells EW that while Huston’s name was misspelled on the Smash finale’s digital print, it was spelled correctly on the version of the finale that aired Sunday night. The error on the digital print is apparently being corrected.
I fucking shit you not! Unbelievable.
Here is her song cut from Season 2.
