Public Address 26/11/04 - Four-Piece Pack

PUBLIC ADDRESS 26/11/04 - Four-Piece Pack

A good week for Mr Z | Nov 26, 2004 12:09
Russell Brown's Hard News

What odds then, on the government actually presenting any evidence now that Ahmed Zaoui has been granted his bail hearing by the Supreme Court? It would be ironic if a man's two years of internment ended because no case was made against bail...,

Che Tibby's view from Melbourne

The rundown so far is that I turned around from Auckland pretty much straight away and headed for the Mount. The car trip had been exhausting, but hanging out with some rellies and an amazing curry laksa later (in New Lynn of all places) I was a little drunk and...,

Jolisa Gracewood in New Haven

Where were we? Oh right. So I had this totally freaky dream. I dreamed that in the middle of George W. Bush's 8-year term, they decided to have an election, just a sort of quick referendum on how he was doing...,


Sometimes there just ain't enough rocks | Nov 25, 2004 16:35
Damian Christie - Cracker With Attitude

Public Address turned two the other day. The first entries were posted on November 21, 2002. I can't find it now, but I remember one of the first reviews discussing what we were all writing about...,

Philip Temple: Hang On A Minute, Mate
Peter Dunne quietly omits some salient facts when arguing for retention of MMP’s coat-tailing provision that allows a party to add list seats if it wins one electorate and achieves more than 1% or so of the party vote... More>>

Cheap Grace And Climate Change: Australia And COP26

It was not for everybody, but the shock advertising tactics of the Australian comedian Dan Ilic made an appropriate point. Australia’s Prime Minister Scott Morrison, a famed coal hugger, has vacillated about whether to even go to the climate conference in Glasgow. Having himself turned the country’s prime ministerial office into an extended advertising agency, Ilic was speaking his language... More>>

Binoy Kampmark: Funeral Rites For COVID Zero
It was such a noble public health dream, even if rather hazy to begin with. Run down SARS-CoV-2. Suppress it. Crush it. Or just “flatten the curve”, which could have meant versions of all the above. This created a climate of numerical sensitivity: a few case infections here, a few cases there, would warrant immediate, sharp lockdowns, stay-at-home orders, the closure of all non-vital service outlets...

Dunne Speaks: Labour's High Water Mark
If I were still a member of the Labour Party I would be feeling a little concerned after this week’s Colmar Brunton public opinion poll. Not because the poll suggested Labour is going to lose office any time soon – it did not – nor because it showed other parties doing better – they are not... More>>

Our Man In Washington: Morrison’s Tour Of Deception

It was startling and even shocking. Away from the thrust and cut of domestic politics, not to mention noisy discord within his government’s ranks, Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison could breathe a sign of relief. Perhaps no one would notice in Washington that Australia remains prehistoric in approaching climate change relative to its counterparts... More>>

Binoy Kampmark: Melbourne Quake: Shaken, Not Stirred

It began just after a news interview. Time: a quarter past nine. Morning of September 22, and yet to take a sip from the brewed Turkish coffee, its light thin surface foam inviting. The Australian city of Melbourne in its sixth lockdown, its residents fatigued and ravaged by regulations. Rising COVID-19 numbers, seemingly inexorable... More>>
