Directions

For today’s celebrations there were freebies to be had – in the form of soccer balls - and autographs to be gained as fans and supporters gathered at Midland Park on what has to be the best day for weather this week. Kids were encouraged to try their ‘feet’ against goal keep Glen Moss in the Sony Goal as players mingled with the crowd signing anything from balls to T-shirts. There was even the odd photo opportunity to be taken advantage of.

In the circumstances, yesterday’s move by Lam to scrap – rather than merely suspend – the hated extradition law that first triggered the protests three months ago, seems like the least she can do. It may also be too little, too late. More>>

Dave Hansford on The Dig: Whose Biodiversity Is It Anyway?

The DOC-led draft Biodiversity Strategy seeks a “shared vision.” But there are more values and views around wildlife than there are species. How can we hope to agree on the shape of Aotearoa’s future biota? More>>
