- What Energy Minister Pete Hodgson needs to say tomorrow is something like this: "We've got serious supply, distribution and marketing problems and the government has had to take a larger role than it would have liked.

Keith Rankin: Anti-globalisation Brigade Get It Wrong

- I am frustrated and bemused by the global anti-globalisation protest movement. It is very much a manifestation of the thing it purports to protest against. Further, the events that it seeks to disrupt are more manifestations of the old nationalist world order than of globalism. See... Keith Rankin: Globalisation and Anarchism [1] Click through to Genoa G8 feature page for full coverage [2]

Lindsay Perigo: Beyond Tribalism

- There is no excuse for racism. "Racism," said Ayn Rand, "is the lowest, most crudely primitive form of collectivism. It is the notion of ascribing moral, social or political significance to a man's genetic lineage - the notion that a man's intellectual & characterological traits are produced & transmitted by his internal body chemistry.” See... Lindsay Perigo: Character, Not Colour [1]


[1] - http://www.scoop.co.nz/mason/stories/HL0107/S00159.htm


Big News: Third World Debt Solutions

- “Unpayable debt” should be cancelled out right, as countries are not going to pay it anyway. “Payable debt” should be part of HIPC, and any relief of this debt should have economic conditions related to poverty reduction and should not be taken away from any development assistance. See... Big News: Why G8 Leaders Have Failed The Poor [1]

Nandor Tells Of Illegal Search, Calls For Inquiry

- "Bit of a bush lawyer are you? OK you little arsehole, I'm using my powers under the Misuse of Drugs Act to search this bag." See... Speech on misuse of Police powers of search [1]


[1] - http://www.scoop.co.nz/mason/stories/PA0107/S00428.htm


US Opposes Biological Weapons Controls

- Disarmament and Arms Control Minister Matt Robson today described the United States' decision to walk away from talks to strengthen the Biological Weapons Convention as troubling and a serious setback to the control and eradication of biological weapons. See... US biological weapons stand a serious setback [1]

Sow Crate Back-down Sparks SPCA Campaign

- The SPCA is promising a nationwide consumer campaign against the pork industry, following the failure of pork producers to vote for an early phase-out of sow stalls. See... SPCA Promises Nationwide Consumer Campaign [1] and Pork Industry buying a fight - Greens [2]

See... Police Retract Porno Claim [1] EARLIER: - Pacnews - "Ex MP In Porn Tapes" [2] - FPCG - Police Deny Scott Tapes Were Pornographic [3]
