PlunketLine: Fraud Accusation Against McKesson

The Government needs to explain why a subsidiary of a huge multi-national corporation which appears on the Top 100 list of US Defense Contractors and which paid US$3 million to settle serious fraud allegations as recently as February has been chosen over the trusted New Zealand institution of Plunket to provide telephone advice to parents, Green Party Health Spokesperson Sue Kedgley says.

    Broadband: New Stats Show Low Uptake Speeds

    - New Zealand's broadband deficit compared to the rest of the world has got worse. The latest OECD statistics have shown that it will be next to impossible for the Government's goal to see New Zealand’s uptake reach that of the OECD's top half by 2007 and top quarter by 2010. "Our projection, based on the OECD data, is that the Government looks set to fall around 900,000 subscribers short of its broadband target." See... Broadband deficit grows bigger [1]

    Politics/Entertainment: Greens Attempt To Reclaim Family Values -

    The Green Party and Loop Recordings have joined forces to showcase some of the best in contemporary music and culture on the Green Room 05: Whanau CD. "The word 'family' has been co-opted by right-wing politicians in recent years as an excuse for intolerance, exclusivity and bigotry.

    Ramzy Baroud: The End Of The American Empire?

    - The miscalculated policies of the US administration in the Middle East are quickly depleting the country’s ability to sustain its once unchallenged global position. Winds of change are blowing everywhere, and there is little that Washington’s ideologues can do to stop it. The above claim is increasingly finding its way into the realm of mainstream thinking, despite all attempts to mute or relegate its import. See... Ramzy Baroud: Imminent Decline of Empire? [1]
