Full Coverage: Iraq, Nukes and Nat Foreign Policy

National Party Campaign Manager Doesn't Know If/How Much American Billionaire Has Donated Today while being interviewed on TVNZ's Agenda program, Education Minister Trevor Mallard accused the National Party of hiding their election donations "through [using] trust funds." When contacted by Scoop yesterday National Party campaign manager Steven Joyce explained that National hadn't received "any large donations" from Julian Robertson. "It is possible that [Mr Robertson] made an anonymous donation. It is also possible that he may have given to one of the trusts that periodically makes donations to us but again I have no knowledge of that. They don't tell me who gives the money so I don't know," he said. See... Mallard Attacks National's Use Of Trust Funds

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

    It hasn’t been much fun at all to see how “war on drugs in sport” has become a proxy version of the Cold War, fixated on Russia. This weekend’s banning of the Russian long jumper Darya Klishina took that fixation to fresh extremes. More>>
