TOP SCOOPS


Keith Rankin: Real Paid Parental Leave

- It appears that something called “paid parental leave” will be implemented by this government. I infer from Radio New Zealand reports that the new proposal will be, as National's 1999 parental tax credit was, the equivalent of a social welfare benefit. See... Keith Rankin: Another Measly Parental Benefit [1]

Upton Online Diaspora Edition

- In this issue we consider the completely different way in which political drama is played out in France, the way in which bi-lateral relations are nurtured by countries with a serious approach to foreign relations, and agriculture as culture – the ingenious multi-functionality argument for agricultural subsidies. See... Upton-On-Line - Diaspora Edition [1]

Howard’s End: Japan’s New PM A Radical Free Marketeer

- The United Nations Conference on Trade and Development (UNCTAD) has issued a report Tuesday warning that the U.S. and Japan are unlikely to come out of a recession anytime soon, but Japan is about to get a radical free marketeer as its new Prime Minister, which might make a difference. See... Howard's End: Japan’s Maverick New PM [1]


[1] - http://www.scoop.co.nz/mason/stories/HL0104/S00137.htm


Big News: Not Wholly Holy

- A recent US survey of 3000 American priests conducted by the Kansas City Star revealed that 15 percent of them were gay, implying they were not celibate, and priests were dying of AIDS at a much higher rate than the average US population. See... Big News: Catholic Priests, Condoms & Gay Sex [1]

Lindsay Perigo: What The Anzacs Died For

- I didn't attend any Anzac Day ceremonies yesterday. Listening to clergymen & politicians prattling on about the very freedom they have destroyed is more than I can stomach. See... Lindsay Perigo: What Did Anzacs Fight For? [1]


[1] - http://www.scoop.co.nz/mason/stories/HL0104/S00133.htm


McCully Alleges Political Meddling Behind Cutler Resignation

- Both Broadcasting Minister Marian Hobbs and TVNZ chair Ross Armstrong have some explaining to do after the resignation of TVNZ Head of News and Current Affairs Paul Cutler, says National MP Murray McCully. See... TVNZ exit raises questions of Minister and Chair [1]


[1] - http://www.scoop.co.nz/mason/stories/PA0104/S00386.htm


Maharey Tells DWI Staff To Help Redundant Qantas Staff

- Social Services and Employment Minister Steve Maharey said today he had asked Work and Income to ensure former Qantas New Zealand staff and other affected employees are aware of the assistance available to them from the Department. See... Work and Income briefing Qantas NZ staff [1] . See also... Anderton back to his business bashing self [2] . For earlier Qantas news click through to the JUST POLITICS [3] feature page.

Anzac Day Speeches & Statements

- The title of this address is "Lest we forget". We remember the sacrifices of those who died. We remember those who were injured. We remember those who lost loved ones. See... Lest we forget - Anderton ANZAC Speech [1] MORE: - Max Bradford - ANZAC Day a reminder of future defence needs [2] - Phil Goff - Goff Anzac Day Speech At NZ Service, Chunuk Bair [3] - Turkish International Service At Mehmetcik Abide [4] - Goff Speech Anzac Dawn Service At Gallopoli [5]

Community Card: Back Up Words With Action, Nats Tell Greens

- National is challenging the Green Party to demonstrate its commitment to low income people by either extracting a commitment from the Labour-Alliance Government that it will reinstate the community service card for the 48 thousand families affected, or it will withhold its support of next month's budget. See... Greens need to back up commitment [1] MORE: - Nats - Govt's Card Decision In Breach Of Human Rights Act [2] - ACT - Urgent Debate Sought On Plight Of Low-Paid Workers [3] - Annette King - Community Services Card to be reviewed [4] - Sue Bradford - Healthcare Eligibility Changes Unacceptable [5] - Roger Sowry - Govt Unfair To Low Income Workers [6] - Winston Peters - Government Removes The Incentive To Work [7] - Jim Anderton - No One Worse Off Under Community Card Adjustment [8]

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

Ramzy Baroud: Being Black Palestinian - Solidarity As A Welcome Pathology

It should come as no surprise that the loudest international solidarity that accompanied the continued spate of the killing of Black Americans comes from Palestine; that books have already been written and published by Palestinians about the plight of their Black brethren.
