The Ballot Paper That Rocked The World

TOP SCOOPS

Hard news Is Here

- GOOD DAY MEDIAPHILES ... does it occur to anyone else that the run-up to the "real" Millennium is quite a bit more millennial than the one everybody celebrated last year? See... HARD NEWS - The President's Mandate is Missing [1]


[1] - http://www.scoop.co.nz/mason/stories/HL0011/S00065.htm


The Florida Recount

- With 65 of the 67 counties in Florida recounted, Republican George W. Bush's lead has narrowed to 225 votes. The result of the recount appears to be academic, however, with legal action looking inevitable. For earlier coverage of the US Elections on Scoop, see the WORLD PAGE [1] .

TUA FIGHT: Samoa Ready To Rumble

- It’s being billed as Super Sporting Saturday in Samoa. A day which will start at 4.30am Saturday Samoan time (Samoa is 24 hours behind NZ) with the Manu Samoa vs Wales test, continues with the league World Cup quarter-final between Toa Samoa and world champs Australia and then climaxes with the David Tua’s shot at the world heavy weight title. Jeremy Rose reports from Apia. See... TUA FIGHT: Super Sporting Saturday in Samoa [1]

Rosalea Barker: Punched cards! I ask you!

- Missing my usual flutter on the Melbourne Cup on November 7, I took a bob each way on the Presidents Cup instead. Three green Tic Tacs still await their fate, bet recklessly on George Bush winning as I sat with my fellow Alameda County vote counters last night, fanning through wads of punch cards looking for chads. See... US Elections: Two horses win six-legged race [1]

Upton On Line: Examining Holocaust Claims

- The fourth estate (and, to be the fair, oppositional elements of the ‘third’) have been making a meal of the latest reference to a holocaust on these shores – this time from the lips of Sandra Lee. Incredibly, no-one it seems is even interested in the empirical (as against the rhetorical) claim she made. See... Upton-on-line November 10th [1]


[1] - http://www.scoop.co.nz/mason/stories/PA0011/S00187.htm


Free Trade With Hong Kong Worse Than Singapore - CAFCA

Armed Guards Whisk Fiji Military Commander’s Children To Safety

- SUVA: Fiji military commander Commodore Frank Bainimarama's two children were whisked away from school yesterday by army bodyguards and the armed forces denied any 48-hour curfew amid rumours of major civil unrest in the capital. See... Commander's Children Whisked To Safety Amid Unrest [1]

Swift Govt Action On Racist SA Police Beating Praised

- Amnesty International welcomes the swift response of the South African authorities to the shocking evidence of the police torture of suspected illegal immigrants, broadcast on state television on 7 November [2000]. The arrest and suspension from duty without ... See... Govt Action On SA Police Beating Welcomed [1]

Petrol Price Rip Offs In Rural Sector
