Keith Rankin: Messing With The UK Election Figures

- Last week I suggested that the result of the British election would be closer than most people expected. I was right, the gap between Labour and the Conservatives was only nine percentage points. What I did not realise, however, is just how much the first-past-the-post system distorts British elections. So I did some sums, tried out the BBC's "Virtual Vote" tool, and made some comparisons with New Zealand. See... Keith Rankin: A Minuscule Landslide [1]

Sludge: Alternative Prostitution Law Reform Plan

King Abuses Power With Effective Gagging Order

- Health Minister Annette King’s decree that only Health Board Chairs may speak to the public is a dictatorial move to tighten political domination of health news, ACT Health Spokesman Ken Shirley said today.

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>>
