The Scoop’s Top Three

The three most read stories on The Scoop yesterday were:

One: Column: Tax Cuts according to Tau, Dick and Bill
The pressure is on for governments to pay an annual growth dividend; to give back to New Zealanders something in recognition of the "success" of the reforms that began exactly 15 years ago.

Two: You Say You Want A Revolution?

Libertarianz leader Lindsay Perigo has hailed Libertarianz' eighth placing in the latest TVNZ-Colmar Brunton poll as signalling the beginning of the end for the corrupt political establishment as we know it & hate it.

Three: Speech: Kevin Roberts: The New Zealand Edge

It’s great to be home in Auckland. Great to be among this group of seriously smart New Zealand business people. It’s particularly satisfying to have squeezed a donation out of each of you for TYLA. TYLA stands for ‘Turn Your Life Around’. It’s a transformative coaching programme for young people who have made some wrong choices and got themselves into trouble. We help them focus on goals and to make their lives positive. We’ve had some inspiring success stories. Jonah Lomu was an early graduate. On behalf of TYLA, I’d like to thank you for your support.
