PUBLIC ADDRESS 11/10/05 - Salient Sells Out & More

Wheezy | Oct 11, 2005 10:02
Russell Brown's Hard News

I don't think this is what the Maori Party wanted before its first group of MPs are even seated. Its third-ranked list candidate Atareta Poananga has blasted its consultative hui process, describing it and co-leader Tariana Turia's glad-eye approach to National as "political suicide"...

Che Tibby's view from Wellington

A very good and interesting speech by Bill English the other day. Not so much because it said anything new, nor because of the timing, but because it represents a particular line of thought about the way New Zealand's history will unfold in the future...

Dunne Speaks: Words Matter, Prime Minister

History is littered with examples of careless or injudicious words uttered by politicians coming back to haunt them, often at the most awkward of times.

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>>
