Maori Oil Claims Futile – Ricky Martin Delayed – Less Costs More – Blue-Collar Brain-Drain – Kiwi Cyclist Wins

- MAORI OIL CLAIMS FUTILE: Maori claiming ownership of New Zealand’s gas and petroleum resources are wasting their time with a Treaty of Waitangi Tribunal hearing this week, according to the Government, because the Tribunal’s recommendation will not affect it’s policy.

- RICKY MARTIN DELAYED: It may have been worth the wait to see Latin pop sensation Ricky Martin perform in Auckland last night, but dedicated fans remain less than impressed with promoters of the postponed show.

- LESS COSTS MORE: Consumers’ Institute chief executive David Russell has confirmed what supermarket shoppers have thought for years – we’re getting less product for our dollar.

- KIWI CYCLIST WINS: Hastings road cyclist Jeremy Yates was given a hero’s reception in France yesterday when he won the world junior men’s road cycling championships.
