From the stream

The Internet Party forgot the power of the internet for a critical moment and naively put up this pic of Picasso’s Guernica as a visual of how they partied in Christchurch. No big surprise they got savaged for their troubles. Still, good to know art can still still pull a political punch 77 years after its making. Dotcom and Co have since taken the pic and their tweet off their Twitter stream (why bother?) and replaced it with a clip from Michael Schama’s tv show The Power of Art. You can see the responses to Guernica as a party piece here.
