PUBLIC ADDRESS 05/12/05 - Mentor as Anything

Maybe Tomorrow | Dec 05, 2005 09:33
Keith Ng off the election trail

Hong Kong's 'Honkies' aren't really known as the ripping-some-mad-sh*t-up type. But they try. Around 100,000-200,000 of them took to the streets today in a massive demonstration to protest against plans by the Government to slow down democratic reforms in Hong Kong, perhaps indefinitely...,

Che Tibby's view from Wellington

One of the great things about being about being near-completely directionless for the better part of your life is the range of jobs you end up working. And there's been a few. More than a few in fact...,

Fiona Rae from the couch

I'd like to draw your attention to a little gem called Julian and Camilla's World Odyssey. Someone's got to. For unfathomable and no doubt stupid reasons, TVNZ has seen fit to screen it at 1pm on a Thursday...,

Another Hanging | Dec 02, 2005 15:37
David Slack on his own account

I don't know if Damian wants us to set up a bit of a Crossfire effort here, but I'll take the bait. What's up with the deification of Van Nguyen he asks. I'd say: identification...,

Damian Christie - Cracker With Attitude

What's up with the deification of Van Nguyen? As the United States nears its 1000th execution, why are there candlelit vigils and calls to have a minute's silence for a convicted heroin smuggler?...,

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>>
