TODAY’S TOP SCOOPS

------------


Big News: Hollingworth Has To Go

- Her Majesty will not be pleased when she meets him. Furthermore, Prime Minister Howard wont sack Hollingworth just because he made some “errors of judgement” in his last job, even if it does taint the office of the Governor General. But he could always ask the Queen what she thinks. See... Big News: Hollingworth Has To Go [1] MORE: - Australian Governor General - Statement 20/2 [2] -Statement 24/2 [3] - Australian PM - See... PM John Howard Interview On Hollingworth 22/2 [4]

On The Left: Alliance Anything But

- A fortnight ago I said I would write on the electoral coalition Helen Clark has put together, and which I believe will win the 2002 election comfortably for the Left. Since then, we've seen the re-emergence of the splits in the Alliance that captivated columnists and the media last year. See... On The Left - Whither the Alliance? [1] . See also... Why The Alliance-Left Rebelled [2]

PC’s Opinion: Rings’ 'Power Corrupts' Theme Lost On Politicians

- It is seductive to think that this timeless lesson of the corruption of power has been noticed by the many politicians who have sucked up to the film's makers - although I'm sure the irony will be lost on most of them. See... PC's Opinion: Hobbits Walk Tall With Libz! [1]


[1] - http://www.scoop.co.nz/mason/stories/HL0202/S00116.htm


Howard’s End: DIY Justice

- No lawyer, no worries, as judges seek a fair go for those who got it alone. While judges in New Zealand are being publicly criticised, judges in Australia are being publicly applauded and our Justice Minister Phil Goff should listen-up. See... Howard's End: Representing Oneself [1]


[1] - http://www.scoop.co.nz/mason/stories/HL0202/S00114.htm


Uri Avnery: what Happened At Camp David

- In the following article Uri Avnery is looking back at the series of events which caused the collapse of the peace process & peace camp, now that the pendulum starts swaying again in the other direction. See... Uri Avnery: Politicus Interruptus [1]


[1] - http://www.scoop.co.nz/mason/stories/WO0202/S00107.htm


The Real Deal: Quick & Dirty Money Laundering

- Two things helped me understand money laundering in America. First, as I drove from Hickory Valley to Philadelphia once a month and drove around the country with my dog Forest all sorts of people started to teach me about how the money worked - truckers and the ladies who run the brand-name motels and the folks who work the late shifts at the gas station food marts. See... The Real Deal: Fast Food Franchise Pop [1]


[1] - http://www.scoop.co.nz/mason/stories/HL0202/S00113.htm


Stateside With Rosalea: The Running Girls

- I guess I should take my own advice every now and then. If I'd looked at the SmartVoter website instead of referring to the Chronicle's 'Voter's Guide' last Sunday I would have realised that actually Gray Davis has three challengers from within his party to his nomination as the Democratic candidate for Governor. See... Stateside With Rosalea: The Running Girls [1]


[1] - http://www.scoop.co.nz/mason/stories/HL0202/S00111.htm

Katya Rivas’ Passion

The serial will continue through to the end of Lent 2002. See... Katya Rivas: Jesus Does the Will of the Father [1]

Economic Potholes Should Slow Kyoto Protocol Ratification

- “Risks that business competitiveness and employment of New Zealanders will be undermined by policies following ratification of the Kyoto Protocol, mean the Government should slow the process”, Chris Baker, Spokesman for the Climate Change Pan Industry Group said. See... Competitiveness Risks Demand Caution On Kyoto [1] MORE: - Pete Hodgson - New NZIER report on Kyoto Protocol [2]

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>>
