After observing the celebrations of the last completely odd day for 1112 years last Friday, Scoop on a hunch decided to check whether the date was also a prime - that is, a number indivisible.

9: Selwyn Manning's Election Predictions

Isn’t democracy a fine thing. Just when it seems this country has been governed by self perceived born to rule cronies forever, the population deals out a right old telling off. Yip, here in south Auckland, three terms is long enough. That’s the ...

10: ELECTION 1999: Jonathan Hill's Election Prediction

14: ELECTION 1999: Alastair Thompson’s Predictions
