ACT Party Deputy
Winston is not funny
may think it is funny to tell weak racist jokes but it is
not funny to New Zealand's Chinese community" said ACT's
Deputy Leader Kenneth Wang.
"Everytime time Mr Peters
stirs up anti Chinese feeling he gives racists in the
community encouragement to attack Chinese. I have reports
of Chinese women being abused in the street. Young louts
going into Chinese shops to abuse shop keepers. These
statements by Mr Peters are very hurtful to New Zealand's
Mr Winston Peters is well aware that he
is playing the race card. My advice to my fellow New
Zealanders is it is time Mr Peters was retired."

Digital Evolution: Scoop Independent News Launches "Operation Chrysalis"
From today Scoop is beginning a process of public consultation with the political, business and civil society groups it has served for the past 15 and a half years.
"It is hoped that in time - with new leadership and increased community engagement - the chrysalis will incubate a new kind of Scoop, one which can sustainably continue Scoop's Mission 'to be an agent of positive change'", says Scoop Founder, Editor and Publisher Alastair Thompson.
"As big publishing shrivels, public participation in contributing and spreading news has grown. Scoop has evolved with this wave by providing an independent platform, committed to upholding democracy, providing a voice to all, and providing the public easy access to information about decisions which affect them."
