Public Address 15/9 - The Opposite Of Cold Showers

PUBLIC ADDRESS 15/09/05 - The Opposite of Cold Showers

Rongo vs Brashie | Sep 15, 2005 09:28
Fiona Rae from the couch

Holy cr*p, I've got a blog! I, like, totally forgot. Sorry. But on to more pressing matters, the question on everyone's lips: how the hell does Rongo keep getting through on NZ Idol? I think we know why Keshia got the boot - it's the girls that vote and they...

National forcibly marries l*sbians! | Sep 15, 2005 09:15
Russell Brown's Hard News

It is not only godless co-habiters like myself and my ladyfriend who have been "married" in the course of National's nationwide letter-drop. I can exclusively reveal that at least four l*sbian couples have found themselves united under one surname, and one chap has found himself hitched to his flatmate...

GUEST: David Haywood on Energy policies

Being an energy engineer has given me some insight into the complaints of my ex-girlfriend. "I just don't understand you," I find myself saying. "You never listen." Such is the unhappy relationship between the energy engineer and the energy-consuming public...

Che Tibby's view from Wellington

Well, there you have it. Two days out, and they went and dropped the ball. Tightest run election in years and a key 'balloon' promise is likely to turn a 'millstone'. Nice one team, nice one...

...they makes an ass of you and me. | Sep 15, 2005 00:00
Keith Ng on the election trail

Will the real costing of Labour's interest-free student loan policy affect my vote? Well, I guess it shouldn't, since this merely confirms my analysis from July/August. (In fact, the $16.5b debt by 2015 falls handsomely within my $15-20b estimate.)...

Binoy Kampmark: Predictable Monstrosities: Priti Patel Approves Assange’s Extradition
The only shock about the UK Home Secretary’s decision regarding Julian Assange was that it did not come sooner. In April, Chief Magistrate Senior District Judge Paul Goldspring expressed the view that he was “duty-bound” to send the case to Priti Patel to decide on whether to extradite the WikiLeaks founder to the United States to face 18 charges, 17 grafted from the US Espionage Act of 1917...

Digitl: Are we happy living in Handy's Age of Unreason?
In 1989 Charles Handy wrote The Age of Unreason. It's a book that looked forward to a time where telecommuting would be an everyday reality. We live in that world today, although we use the term working from home. The book contains other predictions that were on the money... More>>


Reactionary Succession: Peter Dutton, Australia’s New Opposition Leader
The devastation wrought on Australia’s Coalition government on May 21 by the electorate had a stunning, cleansing effect. Previously inconceivable scenarios were played out in safe, Liberal-held seats that had, for decades, seen few, if any challenges, from an alternative political force. But the survival of one figure would have proved troubling, not only to the new Labor government, but to many Liberal colleagues lamenting the ruins. The pugilists and head knockers, however, would have felt some relief. Amidst the bloodletting, hope... More>>


Digitl: Infrastructure Commission wants digital strategy
Earlier this month Te Waihanga, New Zealand’s infrastructure commission, tabled its first Infrastructure Strategy: Rautaki Hanganga o Aotearoa. Te Waihanga describes its document as a road map for a thriving New Zealand... More>>


Binoy Kampmark: Leaking For Roe V Wade
The US Supreme Court Chief Justice was furious. For the first time in history, the raw judicial process of one of the most powerful, and opaque arms of government, had been exposed via media – at least in preliminary form. It resembled, in no negligible way, the publication by WikiLeaks of various drafts of the Trans-Pacific Partnership... More>>




The Conversation: Cheaper food comes with other costs – why cutting GST isn't the answer

As New Zealand considers the removal of the goods and services tax (GST) from food to reduce costs for low income households, advocates need to consider the impact cheap food has on the environment and whether there are better options to help struggling families... More>>
