10.15: Robert Patman-Associate Professor Robert Patman

Robert Patman is Associate Professor in the Political Studies Dept at the University of Otago. His research interests include international relations and US foreign policy. He and Johnny will discuss the state of the world and the US 5 years on from the 9/11 attacks.

10.40: Renee Heal, Otago University Students Association President elect for 2007.

Opposition to the University of Otago’s Code of Conduct featured strongly in Renee Heal’s presidential campaign. So, how does she feel now that the University has passed the controversial disciplinary code without including any of OUSA’s suggested amendments?

11.20: Paul Chong, current President of Otago University Students Association.

Paul Chong also opposes the Code of Conduct, and although he was part of the working party who composed the written Code, he’s angry that students weren’t consulted. Indeed, he and OUSA are now planning to take the University to court.

11.40: Gerry Brownlee, National Party.

Nope, National and Labour won’t lay off each other: exclusive Brethren, Labour’s pledge card expenses, and Don Brash’s leaked emails. It’s like an episode of Neighbours. But where’s Bouncer? Mr Brownlee will surely have something to say about one of the above, even if it’s just the whereabouts of Bouncer.

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>>


Binoy Kampmark: Kevin Rudd’s Failed UN Secretary General Bid

Few sights are sadder in international diplomacy than seeing an aging figure desperate for honours. In a desperate effort to net them, he scurries around, cultivating, prodding, wishing to be noted.

Ramzy Baroud: Being Black Palestinian - Solidarity As A Welcome Pathology

It should come as no surprise that the loudest international solidarity that accompanied the continued spate of the killing of Black Americans comes from Palestine; that books have already been written and published by Palestinians about the plight of their Black brethren.
