More Hard News Is Here!

- I feel that this week's Hard News was a little too emotional. It was written in the hours after I interviewed Dr Poulter, and I was angry about what had happened. I remain convinced by him and his view that there was no reliable evidence of GM seed presence and that the right thing was done. See...

Part 2 Of Adrian Picot’s Critique Of GE Science

- I received two replies on my first article. Both were aggressive attacks on my ability to research and understand science and served as excellent examples of the first line of attack that defenders of the GE faith utilise – question the scientific credentials of the dissenter. See... The BAD science of Genetic Engineering Part Two [1]

CAMPAIGN 2002

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

I'm Not Anti-Asian – Peters

- According to research completed by Massey University, Maori came from mainland China. That means I have Chinese blood in me. All who have migrated to New Zealand, and that includes my ancestors, came to this country to find a better life for themselves and their children. See... One Country - Winston Peters Speech [1] MORE ELECTIONEERING ON IMMIGRATION: - Winston Peters - Immigration Inquiry [2] - Kiwis pay [3] - Michael Cullen - Auckland Chinese Meeting [4] - Lianne Dalziel - Speech [5] - Labour’s immigration policy [6] - George Hawkins - Ethnic Affairs Policy [7] - Phone Service [8]

Peters Can Fix It, In Or Out Of Govt

- The New Zealand First Leader Rt Hon Winston Peters today said he could not discuss the issue of forming coalition governments until the day after the election. See... Coalitions Not The Issue: Peters [1]


[1] - http://www.scoop.co.nz/mason/stories/PA0207/S00382.htm


Prebble Speech: ACT Polling Rocks, Govt Rocked

- ACT's tracking polls have accurately predicted the official polls. Our polls predicted ACT breaking 6 percent, before the TV polls did, and we had National down to 24 percent. We have also tracked the rise and fall of New Zealand First. See... This Election Is Wide Open [1]


[1] - http://www.scoop.co.nz/mason/stories/PA0207/S00374.htm


Greens Push For Prevention Focus For Health

- The Green Party wants 10 percent of the Health Budget dedicated to public and preventative health within five years, an additional $150 million each year. See... Focus On Health, Not On Sickness [1] and Green Health Policy Summary [2]


[1] - http://www.scoop.co.nz/mason/stories/PA0207/S00375.htm
[2] - http://www.scoop.co.nz/mason/stories/PA0207/S00376.htm


NZ First Cops It From Goff

- “Last night on television and again this morning the Labour Party, which has become increasingly indignant about the Greens’ GE attack, launched their own attack on New Zealand First. We can expect much more of this over the next two weeks,” New Zealand First Leader Winston Peters said. See... Labour Declares War On New Zealand First [1]


[1] - http://www.scoop.co.nz/mason/stories/PA0207/S00389.htm


Progressive Coalition’s Pledge Leaflet

- Everyone under 20 in jobs, education or training by 2005, as a step towards full employment. See... Progressive Coalition - Cornerstone Commitments [1]


[1] - http://www.scoop.co.nz/mason/stories/PA0207/S00381.htm


Electoral Rolls Available For Scrutiny Wednesday

- The electoral rolls that will be used for this year's general election will be available for electors to check their enrolment details from this Wednesday 17 July. See... Electoral Rolls On Display From Wednesday [1]


[1] - http://www.scoop.co.nz/mason/stories/PO0207/S00156.htm


Anderton Campaigns Up The Line

- It is probably the most negative campaign I have ever seen. It is certainly a campaign based on fear and threats. See... Jim Anderton speech to public meeting in Levin [1] and Progress for older NZers - Jim Anderton Speech [2]


[1] - http://www.scoop.co.nz/mason/stories/PA0207/S00395.htm
[2] - http://www.scoop.co.nz/mason/stories/PA0207/S00397.htm


Cullen Talks The Talk With Grey Power

- Over the years, I have had many stimulating discussions and debates at Grey Power meetings. While we have not seen eye to eye on some of the detailed questions regarding super policy and other issues affecting older New Zealanders, I believe that we share a belief that governments should mean what they say and say what they mean. See... Michael Cullen Speech to Grey Power [1]


[1] - http://www.scoop.co.nz/mason/stories/PA0207/S00386.htm


Campaign Being Fought On Wrong Battleground

- The Labour Party has spearheaded the first ever 'phoney' election in New Zealand's 150 years of parliamentary history. It is phoney, not only because the campaign is being manipulated by a political agenda, but also because of the false war being orchestrated between Labour and the Greens. See... Let's Take Back The Election Agenda [1]
