Now that Judy and I are travelling free on the buses and the Waiheke Ferry, thanks to Winston’s wonderful Supergold Card, and our joints are afflicted by arthritis, and Alzheimer’s is just around the corner, we feel it’s time to let you do some of the work while we sit back in our rocking chairs sipping champagne.
So things are going to change at Brian Edwards Media. While we’ll continue to contribute our opinions, we want to open up the site to you, our esteemed audience.
In short, we intend to become publishers as well as bloggers. So we’re inviting you to submit original posts on any topic under the sun for publication on the site. You’ve got a readymade audience who can comment on what you’ve written in exactly the same way that they comment now.
Your post will remain at the top of our Home Page for as long as it continues to inspire comment from visitors to the site, or a more interesting or topical post comes along.
Your post can be as short as you like, but with a maximum length – unless we think it’s absolutely brilliant – of 750 words.
If you can supply copyright free photographs or other illustrations to go with your post, that would be good. If not, we’ll look for them ourselves.
The post will, of course, appear under your by-line.
As publishers, we reserve the right to edit, to accept or decline your post, and to remove any material which we consider offensive or defamatory.
You should send your post by email to firstname.lastname@example.org, including your name, address and telephone number.
Over to you. Brian Edwards Media awaits your pearls of wisdom.
What a wonderful opportunity Brian & Judy. I have been enjoying the advantages of the Super Gold card ever since Winston gave it to us. Can’t remember when it started but I am 74 years old. Economically it really must be a good thing for New Zealand.
Bet John Key doesn’t quite know what to about it though.
Will miss your comments Brian and Judy. I have also been waiting to read something from you about National members eating each other. I thought it was only the left that did that so it makes a nice change.
An interesting idea.Im sure there will be plenty of starters.
oh dear. hope you keep coming back to it. what a shock.
I am appalled that Brownlee invoked the notion of satire to cover up his painfully inept attack on Finland. Those interested in climbing into Finland should go at once to Michael Palin’s wondrous “Finland Finland” on Youtube. Now that is satire!
Greetings also to Brian Finbarland Edwards!
Hoping this doesn’t mean an end to your always pertinent commentary – I enjoy and look forward to your (BE & JC) opinions.Good that you want to make the content more inclusive,but don’t abdicate entirely – I realise that is unlikely,and like the direction you are taking.I will follow with interest.
John Key created a tough guy image for himself since first taking office, that image must now be very hard for him to live up to.
What fun — I’ve always read Brian Edwards Media and can’t wait to send in a contribution — people want to hear from me I am sure as I often have something pithy to say.
BE: Better say it then!

Maybe Minister Brownlee could do with being strapped down in a chair, and have Lordi blaring non-stop from the loudspeakers. ;D
Hmmm, I might have one or two words to offer…
BE: Good. Look forward to it.
