Diesel Down – Turia Indignant – Freak Crash – Pill Warning – Yoko Speaks Out

- DIESEL DOWN: Diesel drivers have received another price cut today, making it 13c in two days. Diesel is now at it’s lowest for four months, taking the pressure off expected price rises is shops, to cover transport costs. But skeptics wonder how long it will last.

- TURIA INDIGNANT: A row over the ministerial pecking order has fuelled more ructions between the government and its Maori caucus. Associate Maori Affairs Minister Tariana Turia has gone on sick leave, but it is thought she has spat the dummy over being overlooked to be the acting Maori affairs minister while Maori Affairs Minister Parekura Horomia and his usual stand-in Sandra Lee are both overseas. The Prime Minister has appointed Margaret Wilson the acting Maori Affairs Minister.

- FREAK CRASH: A freak car smash at one of Auckland’s busiest intersections has claimed the lives of a father and his teenage son. Five cars were involved in the crash, the result of an out of control light truck.

- PILL WARNING: A warning has gone out that possible changes to the funding of the oral contraceptive pill could result in a rise in unwanted pregnancies. The Family Planning association says many women would have to change brands of pills, and this could lead to confusion.

- YOKO SPEAKS OUT: 20 years after John Lennon was shot, his widow Yoko Ono has called for tighter gun control in the United States. She has released a film to mark the 20th anniversary of her late husband’s death. Meanwhile, the new Beatles album, 1, has sold more than 12 million copies in three weeks, making it the fastest selling album ever.
