    Scoop image by
Kevin List. - Audio & Text: Despite being a beneficiary of the Kiwi welfare state [1] and never paying a single brass razoo on tertiary study fees during his time at Canterbury University, National's finance spokesperson John Key tells Scoop's Kevin List he remains a solid convert of new-right ideology. Kevin List: "John, I see National has put out a comprehensive alternative budget in the form of a postcard that has been dropped into Kiwis' letterboxes. The postcard says that National would borrow wisely to pay for roading and infrastructure. Would you like to explain who we'll borrow the money from?" John Key: "Yeah, sure. The government borrows anyway…" Scoop Audio.See... Scoop IV Transcript: John Key Talks Tax Cuts [2]

    - Last week, 22 of 28 Nobel Peace Prize winners gathered in South Korea for the 2006 Gwangju (Kwangju) Summit of Nobel Peace Laureates. The Dalai Lama, however, couldn’t attend.

    Dahr Jamail On George Bush's Trip To The Heart of Darkness

    - On Tuesday, June 13th, while Mr. Bush spent a brave five hours in the "green zone" of Baghdad with puppet Iraqi Prime Minister Nuri al-Maliki, at least 36 people were killed across Iraq amidst a wave of bombings. 18 of those died in a spasm of bombings in the oil city of Kirkuk in the Kurdish north. The minute word hit the streets in Baghdad of Bush's visit, over 2,000 supporters of Shia cleric Muqtada al-Sadr took to the streets in protest. The protestors chanted "Iraq is for the Iraqis," and Sadr aide Hazem al-Araji publicly condemned the peek-a-boo visit of who he referred to as "the leader of the occupation." See...

Bush holds the record for the lowest approval ratings of any President in US history, and at a whopping 26%, Taft holds the title for the lowest approval rating for any Ohio governor since the University of Cincinnati started the poll 25 years ago in 1981.
