Baby Bashing – Goldie Theft – Graham Capill – Mark Todd – Interest Rates – Health Boards – Cancer Inquiry - Concorde

BABY BASHING: Wairarapa Police say that a handful of people are hampering an inquiry into the death of a Wairarapa child. They say they know the injuries were inflicted on the day the child was taken to hospital and that a handful of people were with the girl that day. But they are not talking. Meanwhile a Palmerston North woman says that the Whangarei two-year-old struggling to stay alive in Auckland’s Starship Hospital was a cheerful little girl. Doctors are deciding whether or not to turn off life support for the girl. Another couple who knew the baby say they are still in shock. The girl’s grandmother is likely to face a manslaughter or murder charge if the girl dies.

GOLDIE THEFT: Police are searching for the thieves of a Goldie painting from Auckland Museum. The Museum Director says that if the picture is returned unharmed the Museum will not press charges. Tame Iti says that security at the Museum is lax.

GRAHAM CAPILL: Christian Heritage Leader Graham Capill was admitted to Christchurch Hospital on Sunday following a heart attack. The 41-year-old has always taken a very conservative line. He thinks parents should be able to smack their children. This afternoon he suffered a setback. He had not been expected to need an operation.

MARK TODD: The National Party have joined Jim Anderton’s calls for Mark Todd to come clean over allegations he used cocaine. Jenny Shipley is asking for the Minister of Sports to cut funding to Mark Todd. The Minister says he can’t and that Todd is innocent until proven guilty.

INTEREST RATES: The Reserve Bank today warned that workers should hold back on pay raises if they want to avoid interest rates rises. Unions aren’t impressed. Why are workers being blamed for putting up interest rates says one spokesman. Dr Brash also wants businesses not to increase prices.

HEALTH BOARDS: The brief of new elected health boards will focus on patient care – not on running their businesses. The boards will have two places guaranteed to local Maori.

CANCER INQUIRY: The Inquiry has been told that there has been a jump in women diagnosed with invasive cervical cancer in the last two years.

CONCORDE: A week from the Concorde Crash the Air France Concorde’s remain grounded. No engine debris has been found on the runway. The Transport Minister for France says that the ban on Concorde remains in place. Concorde’s tyres are the focus of investigations at the moment.
