Submarine Spottings – Maori Voter Bounty – Computer Geeks Rule – ACC Absurdity

- SUBMARINE SPOTTINGS: Prime Minister Helen Clark will be asking the Defence Force today why they issued “grossly incomplete and misleading” information about air force Orions detecting foreign submarines, in an apparent attempt to cast doubt on her credibility.

- MAORI VOTER BOUNTY: Maori organisations are to be paid up to $10.50 a head for signing up voters on the Maori electoral roll.

- ACC ABSURDITY: An ACC appeal judgement ruled that an ACC instruction to a man who had trouble standing that he should become a fitness trainer was absurd.
