PUBLIC ADDRESS 28/07/05 - Out of the Trenches!

Conniptions | Jul 28, 2005 10:32
Russell Brown's Hard News

I know I'm not the only one not planning to vote on the basis of direct self-interest in September, but it sometimes seems that way. Labour's student loans king-hit certainly had a flurry of current and former students urgently totting up what was in it for them (I understand the...,

Keith Ng on the election trail

I have to hand it to Bill English - it took some balls to come and speak at Victoria University today. The student crowd is generally unpleasant for right-wing MPs, but for a right-wing MP trying to convince them that no interest on their student loan is a bad idea,...,

Alternative Nation: Tea for . . . Who? | Jul 27, 2005 11:16
Graham Reid's many things

In a move described by political commentators as either tactically brilliant or political suicide the prime minister this week announced a new approach from Labour in the forthcoming election. Stung by surveys which showed public resentment over controversies which had been skirted over lightly or simply ignored, the prime minister...,

PUBLIC ADDRESS 27/07/05 - Great Bundles

Slapping Each Other With Great Bundles of Cash | Jul 26, 2005 19:11
Che Tibby's view from Wellington

God. It's like money porn. Two parties throwing money up in the air and rolling around in it, and it all seems very familar. But I think the big difference between standing under this money tree and standing under the Australian money tree is that here, I'm included...,

Go Fish. | Jul 26, 2005 17:43
Damian Christie - Cracker With Attitude

Finally we know the election date. And it's the same one we knew all along. Ho-hum. At least now the media can stop rocking itself to sleep muttering "September seventeenth… definitely definitely September seventeenth…"...,

Hold the front page! | Jul 26, 2005 13:08
David Slack on his own account

This must be a rough time to be a celebrity in Auckland. Eight weeks of dreary election campaign ahead of you and all your supplies of heinous chemicals have dried up. And what about you gentle reader? Are you looking forward to the election, or would you like to enjoy...,

PUBLIC ADDRESS 26/07/05 - Make My Date

burn the rag to the ground G! | Jul 25, 2005 23:36
Living the invasion with Tze Ming Mok

Hip-hop doesn't need to be validated by mainstream recognition or high-culture accolades. But... in your face rhythmless right-wing tax-cutters! Hip Hop Music in Aotearoa just won a Montana: IN - YOUR - FACE! ...,

Alternative Nation: Go Ahead, Make My Date | Jul 25, 2005 18:33
Graham Reid's many things

The date for the election came as no surprise to a Sydney-based stylist and his partner. Sergio Turner and partner David Jackson said yesterday that when they were engaged to do a make-over on the prime minister for her interview in the Australian Women's Weekly a month or so ago...,

Duck and Cover | Jul 25, 2005 16:27
Keith Ng on the election trail

I'm not nearly as excited as I thought I'd be. It's kinda like declaring the start of WWII after the panzerkrieg was on the wrong side of Poland. Still, I'm looking forward to having policy to look at...,
