TOP SCOOPS


SUPER CRISIS: Open Letter To The PM

- “So, the Greens have said “no” and, unless the government can convince New Zealand First to back the New Zealand Superannuation Bill, it might not have the numbers to pass the New Zealand Superannuation Bill. The Minister of Finance is seemingly defiant. He intends to set up the Big Cullen Fund anyway; running it informally within the Treasury without enabling legislation.” See... Michael Littlewood Writes To PM About Super [1] . See also... Eco-Economy: The Green Party Vs Michael Cullen [2]

Sludge Disgusted By Hartner Decision

- In This Edition: Catch 22 For Hartner Creditors - Good Enough For The Goose But Not The Gander. See... Sludge Report #82 - Catch 22 For Hartner Creditors [1]


[1] - http://www.scoop.co.nz/mason/stories/HL0106/S00037.htm


Sludge Report: Terror Lurks As Peace Grows

- As the ceasefire in Israel and Palestine enters its fourth day today, the pressure is coming on, and the participants in this quest for peace, particularly Israeli PM Ariel Sharon and PLO Chairman Yasser Arafat will need to remain acutely alert to lurking terrors. See... Sludge Report #83 – Be Vigilant, Terror Lurks [1] and Israeli Settlers Riot Under Security Protection [2]

Keith Rankin: Conservatives Not Out For The Count

- If I was a betting man, and if Ladbrokes was nearby, I would be betting on a “hung Parliament” in Britain tomorrow. I don't think Hague, Portillo, Widdecombe et.al. will lead the Tories to victory. Nor do I think Labour will lose. But I do think that the chances of a Conservative win are greater than the odds being quoted. See... Keith Rankin: The New Conservative Dragon-Slayers? [1]


[1] - http://www.scoop.co.nz/mason/stories/HL0106/S00032.htm


Upton Online - Diaspora Edition

- In just four weeks, upton-on-line’s productivity has been massacred by serial holidays called (ostensibly) to pay tribute to a mixed bag of religious, patriotic and political events. First there was May Day, taken rather more seriously in a country that still has a real live Communist Party. See... Upton-on-line - Diaspora Edition [1]


[1] - http://www.scoop.co.nz/mason/stories/HL0106/S00035.htm


Dissident Dairy Farmers Do The Math

- Does Critical Mass Mean Higher Payouts? Farmers for a Better Dairy Deal have debunked the claim that Global Co is needed to attain the size or critical mass required to deliver good returns to dairy farmers. See... Does Critical Mass Mean Higher Payouts? [1] - Global Co: Why Not Inform Farmers Properly? [2] - Global Co Strategy: Who Pays? [3]

No One In Nepal Believes Prince Dipendra Killed His Family

- The kings brother is much hated by Nepalese people and activists alike. He was cast out from Nepal for corruption and went to live in India. The campaign against corruption is huge and the Prime Minister is also a target. See... Revolution!! A Personal Account Of Events In Nepal [1] . EARLIER: The Truth From Nepal - All Hell Is Breaking Loose [2]

SCOOP AUCKLAND: Squalid Housing Remains

- Overcrowded housing, people living in garages, caravans, makeshift shacks. Despite the Government trashing market rents for state house tenants, problems linger on. See this and more at the Scoop Auckland Frontpage [1]


[1] - http://www.scoop.co.nz/mason/features/?s=auckland


Mumia Abu-Jamal: U.S. Blacks Abroad

- The historic naming of retired General Colin Powell to the post of U.S. Secretary of State has been as remarkable as it was unprecedented, chiefly because of his African ancestry. See... Guest Comment: U.S. Blacks Abroad [1] . See also... Lie Detector Test Corroborates Beverly Confession [2]

Lindsay Perigo Rewrites A Business Leader’s Speech

- I hate business. Now that I have your undivided attention, let me be more specific. I hate business when it fawns to the government, especially an anti-business government like the one we have now. See... Lindsay Perigo: I Hate Business [1]


[1] - http://www.scoop.co.nz/mason/stories/HL0106/S00034.htm


Robson Breaks Own Embargo On Prison Site

- The Minister of Corrections last night at a Hamilton public meeting punctured his own big press announcement on the new Auckland prison by leaking his main piece of news 24 hours too early. See... Matt Robson Spills Beans On Men's Prison Site [1]


[1] - http://www.scoop.co.nz/mason/stories/PO0106/S00021.htm


Government Sells Out Water

- The Water Pressure Group regards the Commerce Minister’s statement, “The Government considers that the Commerce Act is appropriate legislation to apply to the provision of water services and other essential services,” to be a treacherous 180 degree U turn, and sellout of the Labour Party position on water services stated before the election. See... Treacherous Labour Government Sellout on Water [1]
