PUBLIC ADDRESS 04/10/05 - Memories and a New Motor

Some stuff | Oct 04, 2005 11:44
Russell Brown's Hard News

There's not really any need for me to weigh in at length on the Salient business, what with the mobilisation of the Former Student Media Blog Mafia. You can read Tze Ming (whatever happened to that cultural ban on not cheeking one's elders, eh?), Mr Nippert...

The Long Goodbye | Oct 04, 2005 11:28
David Slack on his own account

More readers' farewells today, this time to the MPs whose fate was sealed on Saturday morning. Nandor Tanczos, if goodwill means anything, there's clearly a substantial constituency for your return at the next election. I'm just a little puzzled that the Greens don't seem to be contemplating creating some sort...

Living the invasion with Tze Ming Mok

Brilliant of Victoria University to sneakily serve that injunction before Salient returned from the ASPA awards. Not so brilliant of them to forget the point of ASPA is to enable simultaneous publication of student media news stories....

Going Postal | Oct 03, 2005 16:53
Damian Christie - Cracker With Attitude

What with petrol prices being what they are and the threat of peak oil looming, I thought it time I did the sensible thing and bought a better car. Behold the beauty of my new (old) 1965 Holden Special:...

Ian Powell: Are we happy living in Handy's Age of Unreason?

On 19 June the Sunday Star Times published my column on the relationship between the Labour government’s stewardship of Aotearoa New Zealand’s health system and the outcome of the next general election expected to be around September-October 2023: Is the health system an electoral sword of Damocles for Labour...

The First Attack On The Independents: Albanese Hobbles The Crossbench
It did not take long for the new Australian Labor government to flex its muscle foolishly in response to the large crossbench of independents and small party members of Parliament. Despite promising a new age of transparency and accountability after the election of May 21, one of the first notable acts of the Albanese government was to attack the very people who gave voice to that movement. Dangerously, old party rule, however slim, is again found boneheaded and wanting... More>>


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...

Dunne Speaks: Roe V. Wade Blindsides National

Momentum is everything in politics, but it is very fragile. There are times when unexpected actions can produce big shifts and changes in the political landscape. In 2017, for example, the Labour Party appeared headed for another hefty defeat in that year’s election until the abrupt decision of its then leader to step aside just weeks before the election. That decision changed the political landscape and set in train the events which led to Labour being anointed by New Zealand First to form a coalition government just a few weeks later... 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>>
