Chat is now open and available for discussion at any time. Pete may or may not be available in the chat room when you enter. Scheduled chats will be announced here and on the mailing list.

Please respect these guidelines for the online chat:

  • When you have a question, type a question mark (?) then hit return. Pete will answer questions in the order presented.
  • Please repect the "floor" when someone is speaking; it can be confusing when many people speak at once.
  • Please try to stay on the current topic.
  • Please remain respectful of others and of the opposition candidate.

Please join the conversation by using the web based chat here, or connect directly to the IRC server at, channel #pashdown.
