TODAY’S TOP SCOOPS

Paintergate: Legal Jab To Swinging Bill

- "It appears the Prime Minister made no effort to co-operate with the police. We now know she refused to be interviewed by police.

Promenading Is Political

- "Walking is the most democratic, healthiest and cheapest form of transport. We create no emissions, don't wear out the footpaths, make the streets safer by our presence and affect retail profit most directly," says Green candidate Celia Wade-Brown. She was pleased to be included in consultation on the draft New Zealand Transport Strategy. See… Walking Should Come First


It's Nice To Have The Right Sort Of Friends

- The SEC investigation of George W. was led by general counsel James R. Doty who, according to a UPI report, mysteriously neglected to interview any of the Harken directors. Moreover, Doty had previously served as George W. Bush's personal lawyer in the deal involving his Texas Rangers purchase. So, in the end, the younger Bush was cleared of insider trade wrongdoing by his personal attorney and by his father's vice-presidential counsel, a virtual impossibility for the average U.S. citizen.

CAMPAIGN 2002

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

Green Campaign Launch: I Have A Green Dream

- I look forward to the day when it is accepted as obvious that we will not build a knowledge economy if students have nothing to live on while they study; that it does not make sense for each individual when they move around a city to cart a tonne of metal with them; that enough food for all can be grown without pesticides; and that New Zealand does not need or want GE outside the lab.
