TOP SCOOPS

Sludge Report: Roads To Peace Blocked

- It is as if the biggest kid on the block has told the police to back off in an increasingly brutal street fight – but wishes to somehow assert that it is not itself taking sides. See... Sludge Report #104 – Roadmaps And Roadblocks [1]

Public Meeting Tonight: Who Creates Our Money And Why?

- A public meeting and debate is to be held tonight, Monday August 27th, at 7.30 pm at the Memorial Theatre, Students Union, Victoria University, where British author Michael Rowbotham will debate the question of why foreign banks are allowed to create 98% of New Zealand’s money supply with Michael Reddell, Chief Manager, Financial Markets Department, Reserve Bank of New Zealand.

Howard’s End: Pride & Prejudice On The West Coast

- Scoop readers know that I stand for justice and fairness and that includes for the people where I live in on West Coast. For a moment, let's forget about mining, logging and the other extractive industries and focus on words like discrimination, marginalisation, and right to self-determination. See... Howard's End: No Justice And Fairness For Coasters [1]


[1] - http://www.scoop.co.nz/mason/stories/HL0108/S00146.htm


Stateside: “That Woman” Back On Politicians’ Lips

- Speaking of which, the term "that woman" (as in "I did not have sex with that woman") took on a whole new aspect during the Gary Condit interview on Thursday night. See... Stateside With Rosalea: Tragedy At Ford's Theatre [1]


[1] - http://www.scoop.co.nz/mason/stories/HL0108/S00147.htm


Irish Eyes: Meteor-allegorical Forecasting

- Occasionally it pays to go back to the old ways, to visit the vaults, to dip one’s toe in history. See... Irish Eyes: The Allegorical Weather Forecast [1]


[1] - http://www.scoop.co.nz/mason/stories/HL0108/S00148.htm


Michelle Boag: Out With The Old

- First, is there a need for renewal in the National Party? Absolutely. Any political party that suffers an election defeat looks for renewal, but in a party that has been in government for nine years it is especially relevant. See... Boag: Address to Northern Club, Auckland [1]


[1] - http://www.scoop.co.nz/mason/stories/PA0108/S00499.htm


Dairy Giant Gets A Name – Fonterra

- New Zealand’s biggest company will be called Fonterra Co-operative Group Ltd, its Chairman, John Roadley, announced today. See... Name Announcement Creates Challenge [1] REACTION: - Ecological Foundation - Fonterra Must Live Up To Its Name [2]

First Trade Surplus Since 1995, But Imports Growing

- The value of merchandise imports for July 2001 is $2,796 million, according to latest figures released by Statistics New Zealand. The data shows a rising imports trend over the past five months. See... Imports Continue To Grow [1] and Merchandise Trade Balance, Imports (July 2001) – Deutsche Bank [2]

Cloud Of Racism Hangs Over HRC – Franks

- ACT Justice Spokesman Stephen Franks is asking the Race Relations Conciliator to audit public utterances made by Human Rights Commissioners in the past few years so that the public can be satisfied the Commission is untainted by racism. See... Audit of Human Rights Commission Comments Sought [1] FULL COVERAGE: - Govt - Resignation of Human Rights Commissioner [2] - National - Clark sat on sidelines while Henry abused powers [3] - NZ First - One law for Margaret's friends [4] - ACT - Wilson's Poor Judgement A Constitutional Threat [5] , All HRC Appointments Must Be Reviewed, ACT Says [6] - ACT - ACT Says Human Rights Commissioner Must Go [7] - Govt - Apology accepted, matter closed [8]
