MICHAEL CULLEN AND HIS BUDGET

TOP SCOOPS


BUDGET 2001: Over-cautious, Spendthrift - Sludge

- Today’s budget is definitely not made from the cloth of socialist revolutions. This budget is prudent, conservative, responsible and spend thrift. It is in short an ultra-careful as-she-goes, lets-get-ourselves-re-elected-by-centrist-voters in 2002 budget. See... Sludge Report #71 – Old Mother Hubbard’s Budget [1]

Keith Rankin: A Just Tax Cut

- Nobody really cares that the Government has spent slightly more than it planned to spend this financial year (to June 2001). Indeed there appears to be widespread if understated support for an expansionary fiscal policy to be outlined in today's budget. See... Keith Rankin: Business Handouts [1]


[1] - http://www.scoop.co.nz/mason/stories/HL0105/S00147.htm


Middle East Peace Special: Giving Ariel The Benefit Of The Doubt

- Israel’s leader Ariel Sharon has now – according to reports [1] - ordered his troops to stop firing – except where it is necessary to protect human life. The Palestinians, unsurprisingly, do not believe him. Sludge however, for the sake of hope, is prepared to give him the benefit of the doubt for now. See...

The ICC Report Into Cricket Corruption

- Allegations have been made in relation to matches played in the ICC knockout tournament in Nairobi in October 2000 and more recently in relation to the New Zealand v Pakistan series in 2001. These allegations are being reviewed and full investigations will take place, if justified. See... Report On Corruption In International Cricket [1]

Republicans To Lose Senate Control

- U.S. Republican Senator, James Jeffords, 67, of Vermont looks set to make history in a party switch from the Republicans which would strip the GOP of its Senate control and curtail President Bush's ability to pass legislation and place conservative judges on the bench. See... Senator Switches Teams, Undermines Republicans [1]

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.
