TODAY’S TOP SCOOPS

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


Keith Rankin: If We Still Had FPP

- If last weekend's election had been held under "First-Past-the-Post" (FPP) with 69 electorates Labour+Anderton would have won 62 to 65 of those seats. This is because, when we only had an "electorate vote", we had to use it as a party vote. So it is the party votes in each electorate which tell us, had we not had MMP, which party would have won that electorate. See... Keith Rankin: From Labour "Landslide" to 2008 [1]

Ramzy Baroud: Being Black Palestinian - Solidarity As A Welcome Pathology

It should come as no surprise that the loudest international solidarity that accompanied the continued spate of the killing of Black Americans comes from Palestine; that books have already been written and published by Palestinians about the plight of their Black brethren.
