PUBLIC ADDRESS 21/10/05 - Quake the room

PUBLIC ADDRESS 21/10/05 - Quake the room

Quake the room. | Oct 26, 2005 11:04
Living the invasion with Tze Ming Mok
The London Tube is not the only Big BadaBoom in the desi-repertoire, as I remembered Saturday night while checking in with my Nagis at Galatos, repping for the Nanyang. (What ethnic-lingo is she on about now, ask the white liberal masses?)...

Russell Brown's Hard News
Looks like I missed the loophole in the new Australian iTunes Store. Computerworld was reporting yesterday that New Zealanders were successfully buying tunes by listing New Zealand as their Australian city of residence - however much that might stick in the craw...

The Incredible Winston | Oct 25, 2005 12:03
Keith Ng on the election trail
Winston Peters. Winston Peters. Winston Peters. Like everyone else, I can't stop talking about Winston Peters! Winston Peters! He really has been having a tough time with the media at the moment, with SST's Anthony Hubbard's explicitly putting him on trial, even...

Suspiciously Simple Solutions | Oct 20, 2005 18:06
Che Tibby's view from Wellington
I have the cure to bird flu. Now, because I know there are a lot of scared and nervous people out there, I've devised a seemingly simple set of solutions to the issue of this pesky avian virus, and as a public service I'm willing to share them with you,...

But the light bulb has to want to change | Oct 20, 2005 11:44
David Slack on his own account
It is an article of faith amongst the grumbling types that the European Union is the flag- bearer for everything that is wrong with modern bureaucracy. So stand by for another round of EU-bagging, courtesy of a joke that begins: How many men does it take to change a light...

Binoy Kampmark: The Major Questions Doctrine: The US Supreme Court Blunts The EPA
The US Supreme Court has been frantically busy of late, striking down law and legislation with an almost crazed, ideological enthusiasm. Gun laws have been invalidated; Roe v Wade and constitutional abortion rights, confined to history. And now, the Environmental Protection Agency has been clipped of its powers in a 6-3 decision.
The June 30 decision of West Virginia v Environmental Protection Agency was something of a shadow boxing act... More>>


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>>


Dunne Speaks: "Let's Get Wellington Moving" Yeah, Right
There was great excitement in Wellington recently when the government finally announced – after much procrastination and indecision – its intentions for the ever so over-optimistically titled “Let’s Get Wellington Moving” plan... More>>


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>>
