PUBLIC ADDRESS 10/12/04 - Now, then, everywhere

The Liberal Lollyscramble | Dec 10, 2004 11:34
Russell Brown's Hard News

The most extraordinary thing about yesterday's Ahmed Zaoui bail decision is surely the frank disdain expressed by the Supreme Court for the Crown's evidence - or lack thereof - that Zaoui would constitute a danger on the streets of Auckland...

Graham Reid's many things

At last living up to this column's title, here are some random thoughts from the internal playlist. Home entertaining: Summer's coming and we all know what that means: barbecues. And women columnists banging on about blokes and their barbies, some of them pretending to great psychological insight by comparing the...

The Singers of Loneliness | Dec 10, 2004 09:22
Great New Zealand Argument: Robin Hyde, 1938

Written from memory, a long way from home, and in the midst of a war, Robin Hyde's 'The Singers of Loneliness' is a something of a letter in a bottle. This impassioned assessment of New Zealand literature - an account of "what has been saved, what thrown away, and what...

All I need is the air that I breathe ... | Dec 10, 2004 08:56
GUEST Gemma Gracewood from Wellington

The sky won't fall in New Zealand this weekend. Instead, we'll be partying hard with our gay and marriage-averse straight mates, and waking with clean hair and clothes that smell only of sweat and spilt champagne...

Don't Look Back | Dec 09, 2004 21:27
David Slack on his own account

In my experience, if you have a promotion, the last thing you should be is subtle. So let me see how blunt I can get. In this blog you will find out how you can win an Ipod for Christmas from your pals at Public Address...

Keith Rankin: Science, Scientists, And Scientism
Science, in the not-so-recent-past, has often had a bad press. It's been personified, particularly by the political left, as Frankenstein, as agents of capitalism, classical liberalism, colonialism, sexism (yang over yin), eugenics, and god-like pretension. More recently though, in the zeitgeists of climate change awareness and covid, it's had an unusually good press; although we retain this persistent worry that viruses such as SARS-Cov2 may be the unwitting or witting result of the work of careless or evil scientists...

Dunne Speaks: Can ACT's Dream Run Continue?

By most reckonings the ACT Party has had a very successful political year. Not only has its expanded Parliamentary team settled in well to its work, without controversy or scandal, but its leader has gained in community respect, and the party’s support, at least according to the public opinion polls, has increased sharply...

Keith Rankin: Basic Universal Income And Economic Rights
"Broad growth is only going to come when you put money in the hands of people, and that's why we talk about a Universal Basic Income". [Ritu Dewan, Indian Society of Labour Economics]. (From How long before India's economy recovers, 'Context India', Al Jazeera, 31 Oct 2021.) India may be to the 'Revolution of the twenty-first century' that Russia was to the 'Revolution of the twentieth century'... More>>



Gasbagging In Glasgow: COP26 And Phasing Down Coal

Words can provide sharp traps, fettering language and caging definitions. They can also speak to freedom of action and permissiveness. At COP26, that permissiveness was all the more present in the haggling ahead of what would become the Glasgow Climate Pact... More>>

Globetrotter: Why Julian Assange’s Inhumane Prosecution Imperils Justice For Us All

When I first saw Julian Assange in Belmarsh prison, in 2019, shortly after he had been dragged from his refuge in the Ecuadorean embassy, he said, “I think I am losing my mind.”
He was gaunt and emaciated, his eyes hollow and the thinness of his arms was emphasized by a yellow identifying cloth tied around his left arm... More>>

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>>
