Extraordinary | Nov 03, 2005 09:36
Russell Brown's Hard News

The Los Angeles Times column by Lawrence Wilkerson, headed The White House cabal somehow escaped my attention over the past week, but I think it's still worth drawing attention to, because it's extraordinary...

Rehabilitated: Tom Scott | Nov 03, 2005 02:44
Keith Ng off the election trail

A fun Friday read, for those of you who can't be arsed working on Thursday.

Keith Rankin: Liberal Democracy In The New Neonationalist Era: The Three 'O's

During the 1987 election campaign, when electoral reform was a hot issue, Prime Minister David Lange promised to have a referendum on the electoral system... More>>

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.
