    Mexico: Narconews.Com Lifts Lid On Mexican Vote Fraud

    - Things are looking worse and worse in Mexico for the Felipe Calderon, his National Action Party, and the Federal Elections Institute that prematurely announced his victory. New evidence of fraud and crimes on the part of the electoral authorities is appearing every day. The White House is backtracking from its initial enthusiasm for Calderon's "victory." Citizens in towns and cities across Mexico are standing up to make sure the crimes they've witnessed and the stealing of their election is known. And Narco News isn't missing a beat. See...

    Exports: Bloke Embittered By British Better Butter Boast

    - New Zealand First says that advertising campaigns in Europe aimed at undermining New Zealand's exports must be neutralised by giving consumers good reasons to keep buying our products. "A recent campaign by a British dairy company deriding our butter for the distance it travels is obviously focused on getting consumers to buy a local brand," said Primary Production and Agriculture spokesperson Doug Woolerton.

First, the MPs' comments indicate there is no consensus on the next leader and, secondly, they indicate that the incoherent policy positions of the party in recent years extend to an incoherent approach to strategic issues.
