The Dominion

Winston Wins - Red Cross - Missing Votes - Prostitutes Beat IRD - Pukeko Eating - Prozac For Teen - Political Headlines - Editorial on WTO

WINSTON WINS: The Dominion leads today with a report that Winston is in by a whisker. A sub headline says the result turns Clark green. The paper says the Labour-Alliance government will have to deal with the Greens after NZ First leader Winston Peters again defied political death and clung to his Tauranga seat last night by 62 votes.

WINSTON WINS: The front-page photo -from the files - shows a jovial Peters. His four MPs who will enter Parliament with him are also pictured.

Also on the front page:

- RED CROSS: a report that Kiwi generosity has caused Red Cross donations to increase more than four times in the past financial year;

- MISSING VOTES: a report that police hoped to have some idea tomorrow of what had happened to 105 votes missing from the Rangitikei electorate, a senior officer said yesterday;

- PROSTITUTES BEAT IRD: a report that a massage parlour has beaten the Inland Revenue Department over gst on earnings - but it has taken two years and cost $31,000 in legal fees;

- PUKEKO EATING: a report hat Pukeko might will be low in fat, salt and sugar, but the Forest and Bird Protection society wants it to stay of this year's Heart Foundation Wild at Heart recipe promotion menu;

- PROZAC FOR TEEN: a report that a teenage sex offender has been ordered by a court to start a three-month trial of Prozac against the wishes of his mother.
