    Parliament: MPs Vote Today On Whether To Raise Drinking Age

    The Keep-it-18 campaign has pointed to figures from the Alcohol Liquor Advisory Council (ALAC) to show that the claims by promoters of raising the drinking age back to 20 that youth drinking is "out of control" are misleading and don’t focus on the real issues behind New Zealand's drinking problems.

    Fireworks: Peter Dunne Explains That Prohibition Does Not Work

    United Future leader Peter Dunne says a total ban on fireworks sales to the public would be a step too far... "Only the naïve, or the killjoys in our community could seriously imagine that such a ban would work... Where will it end? Fireworks police doing snap raids on people's homes to check they are not illicitly holding fireworks?" See... Dunne: firework ban a step too far [1]

    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. Finally, such an honour is netted, in all likelihood just to shut that overly keen individual up.

    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.
