TODAY’S TOP SCOOPS

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

Keith Rankin: A Fraction Too Much Faction?

- Let's imagine the Anderton faction of the Alliance had not found a loophole in their own "electoral integrity" legislation, and, together, had resigned from Parliament. See... Keith Rankin: A Fraction Too Much Faction? [1]


[1] - http://www.scoop.co.nz/mason/stories/HL0204/S00020.htm


Howard’s End: Into The Arms Of The Major Parties

- If the ability to count is all that political parties need to know in order to gain or retain power under MMP, then National and Labour must be rubbing their hands together over the break-up of the Alliance which will scare more of the horses back to the major parties. See... Howard's End: A Grand Coalition Of Scared Horses [1]


[1] - http://www.scoop.co.nz/mason/stories/HL0204/S00021.htm


Upton-on-line: French Miscellanies Issue

- Upton-on-line explores a public transport solution in Rennes that would have Aucklanders drooling (if they could twist Wellington’s arm to fund it), the edifice virus plaguing France’s cultural monuments, French reaction to the death of The Queen Mother and finally a new feature: Diasporan of the Month. See... Upton-on-line - Diaspora Edition 4/4/2002 [1]


[1] - http://www.scoop.co.nz/mason/stories/HL0204/S00024.htm


The Fashion Crimes Of Anorexic Giraffes

- Some people think TV is educational. Personally, I think of TV as a fabulous freak show, where we can feed our endlessly voyeuristic desires for trash. See... Tube Talk: TV As A Fabulous Freak Show [1]


[1] - http://www.scoop.co.nz/mason/stories/HL0204/S00026.htm


Atrocities Unfold On Independent Media

- While Israel has sealed off the Palestinian cities of Bethlehem and Ramallah to journalists and the outside world, information and news of atrocities is getting through via independent and alternative means. Here is an account of the inhumanity that is being orchestrated against civilians and innocents. See... Oppressed to Oppressor - the atrocities unfold [1] and Feedback [2] MORE: - Amnesty - Cycle Of Violence [3]


[1] - http://www.scoop.co.nz/mason/stories/HL0204/S00018.htm

Egyptian-Born Novelist Ahdaf Soueif’s Letter To Blair

- Men are blindfolded and shot in the streets. An entire civilian population is being terrorised in the name of rooting out terror - will you do nothing about it? See... An Open Letter On Palestine To Tony Blair [1]


[1] - http://www.scoop.co.nz/mason/stories/HL0204/S00025.htm


POV: Shrinking E-Reality

- Email is ego supporting, instant gratification, as if self-esteem is tied inexorably to the fullness of your inbox. See... Email Lovers - Deleted with Impunity [1]


[1] - http://www.scoop.co.nz/mason/stories/HL0204/S00019.htm


Doing The Splits - Greens Give Jim A History Lesson

- "Jim Anderton has been quick to draw a parallel between his own actions in abandoning his party and those of the Greens in withdrawing from the Alliance in 1997," said Ms Fitzsimons. However, his version of what happened at that time is somewhat at odds with the facts. See... Anderton Rewrites History To Justify Actions [1]


[1] - http://www.scoop.co.nz/mason/stories/PA0204/S00054.htm


Spike Milligan Would Be Proud, Winston Tells Jim

- Alliance Leader Jim Anderton is in effect asking New Zealanders to believe that while he is in Parliament he will be the leader of one political party, and will pretend that the other party, of which he is also leader, does not exist. See... Failure To Understand Coalition Politics: Peters [1]


[1] - http://www.scoop.co.nz/mason/stories/PA0204/S00050.htm
