The Smoking Gun In The Hollow Men

24 May 2005: "Good afternoon Don and John, Doug Watt and myself enjoyed your presentation this morning at the Millennium Hotel. However as backers of the recent "Wake Up NZ" campaign ($350,000) and as responsible for a very extensive election campaign ($1,000,000) with the sole goal of "Getting Party Votes for National" a meeting following on from our one last week with Steven Joyce is important." - Since the injunction against publication was finally lifted shortly before midday today C.D. Sludge and the Scoop Team have been furiously speed-reading Nicky Hager's expose of the life and times of National Party Leader Don Brash a.k.a. Hollow Men: A Study In The Politics Of Deception.

    Health: Hodgson Admits Dioxin Numbers Flawed

    The admission by Health Minister Pete Hodgson that there are errors in a key health study of residents exposed to dioxin in New Plymouth means that the completed peer reviews of the study should now be scrapped, Green Party Health Spokesperson Sue Kedgley says. In 2005, the Health Ministry released a study into dioxin levels in the community adjacent to a chemical plant. Image (c) Greenpeace See... Dioxin peer reviews should now be scrapped [1]
