Poll Watch: Mr Moderate Could Be The Joker

- Yesterday’s NZ Herald DigiPoll shows the Labour Party, “would win 58 seats - tantalisingly short of a majority in the 120-seat Parliament, even with Jim Anderton's support. …Assuming he retains his Ohariu-Belmont seat United Future leader Peter Dunne could hold the crucial 61st seat and the balance of power if Helen Clark decided to spurn the Greens and NZ First.” See...

Satire: Dramatic Monologue With George W.

- The last time I wrote at length in my journal, in January, the first of the business debacles was just starting to unfold.

Especially once we ratcheted up the War-on-Terror and patriotic themes. See... Scoop Satire: Inside George Bush's Diary [1]

[2] - http://www.scoop.co.nz/mason/stories/HL0207/S00101.htm


Not Important! Think Again: Money Laundry Special

- The United States is in the process of creating a national network of informers. Thus, in imitation of some of the nastier regimes around the world, including those against which the US waged the Cold War, the Bush regime is in the process of recruiting people to spy on their fellow citizens. If you doubt this read the following. See... Not Important! Think Again: Money Laundry Special [1] . See also... Not Important? Think Again - July 15th [2]

Gordon Campbell: On The Politicising Of The War On Drugs In Sport
