TOP SCOOPS


Rosalea Barker: US Hostage Drama

- Keep going down the path! So yells Russell Crowe in the TV trailer for the hostage movie about to open in two days time, "Proof of Life". The presidential stand-off feels like a hostage drama too with no romantic Meg Ryan-type relief and little proof of life either in the hostages - the American public - or the cruel captors, who have each come across on 60 Minutes this week as passionless to a fault. See... Rosalea Barker: Keep Going Down The Path! [1]

Howard’s End: Russia Neutralises Salvation Army Threat

- First it was the closed trial of alleged but now-convicted American spy, Edmond Pope, and now the Salvation Army has been told by a Moscow City court that it is plotting to overthrow the government because it has the word “Army” in its name. See... Howard’s End: Russia Shuts Down Sallies’ Threat [1]

A Whirlpool Of Closing The Gaps Spin

- "We've had more evidence today that the Government's Closing the Gaps policy is a shambles," National Commerce spokesperson Lockwood Smith said today. See... Closing the Gaps leaves departments in a spin [1]


[1] - http://www.scoop.co.nz/mason/stories/PA0012/S00133.htm

- Q Last time I sat down with you here in the White House and a had a long conversation it was just right after Wye, and you were feeling real good and real happy and really accomplished. And, today, considerably different. How are you feeling? See... Interview Of The President By Rolling Stone [1]

Defence Chief Comes Out Fighting On ‘Perk Trip’ Accusations

- Inferences made under Parliamentary privilege by New Zealand First spokesperson on defence, Ron Mark, that travel by service chiefs and their spouses are perk trips are wrong and misleading. See... Re: Attack On Defence Travel Costs [1]

Gordon Campbell: On The Politicising Of The War On Drugs In Sport

It hasn’t been much fun at all to see how “war on drugs in sport” has become a proxy version of the Cold War, fixated on Russia. This weekend’s banning of the Russian long jumper Darya Klishina took that fixation to fresh extremes. More>>

Binoy Kampmark: Kevin Rudd’s Failed UN Secretary General Bid

Few sights are sadder in international diplomacy than seeing an aging figure desperate for honours. In a desperate effort to net them, he scurries around, cultivating, prodding, wishing to be noted.
