Politics: Key Not A 'Hardcore Hard Right Winger'

In a clear bid for leadership of the National Party, MP John Key says in a radio interview he believes the minimum wage should keep rising and implied that Dr Brash is one of the 'hard right wingers' who believes in getting rid of the minimum wage altogether. "Is Mr Key ignorant of his party's hard right wing stance on the minimum wage, or is he attempting to rewrite it as part of his power play for leadership?" says Minister of Labour Ruth Dyson.

    Scoop Satire: Calls For Calm As Parliamentary Ceasefire Falters

    - New Zealand's legislative assembly is about to enter the sixth full day of a Speaker-imposed ceasefire, but initial indications are that the hard-won peace will not last. Volleys of barracking, or as it has come to be known 'barraging', have already begun to fly and the Speaker has called for restraint. The lull in hostilities followed weeks of unprecedented rhetorical violence.See... Hood: Shaky Parliament Ceasefire Enters Sixth Day [1]
