PUBLIC ADDRESS 14/09/06 - You Know What ...

Staying on the porch | Sep 14, 2006 11:54
David Slack on his own account

That's all? No Goats? No r*nt-boys? Perhaps the secrets too-awful-to-reveal are yet to come. If they do, I daresay we'll read them first on Sydney indymedia who wrote on this very day one year ago:...,

Russell Brown's Hard News

Well, that got the pledge card out of the headlines for a day. But for all the mighty fulminating about Labour dirty tricks, the fact is that Don Brash was done in by one or more of his own colleagues...,

Living the invasion with Tze Ming Mok

So, my first day back in the country, and top news story on Nightline? Don Brash's sex life. I only have two words for the media on this one: Please stop. Pleeeeeeeeeaase stop. No-one wants to be forced to think about Don Brash's s*x life; it does not go well...,

Dr Strangelove: Or, how I learned to stop worrying and... aw, crap! | Sep 13, 2006 23:32
Keith Ng working hard for once

I saw the PM's old Press Secretary walking down Lambton Quay today, and it reminded me of an angry phone call I got from him last year, informing me that Labour had no plans to release any dirt files, that Labour does not keep dirt files, and that...,

Philip Temple: Hang On A Minute, Mate
Peter Dunne quietly omits some salient facts when arguing for retention of MMP’s coat-tailing provision that allows a party to add list seats if it wins one electorate and achieves more than 1% or so of the party vote... More>>

Cheap Grace And Climate Change: Australia And COP26

It was not for everybody, but the shock advertising tactics of the Australian comedian Dan Ilic made an appropriate point. Australia’s Prime Minister Scott Morrison, a famed coal hugger, has vacillated about whether to even go to the climate conference in Glasgow. Having himself turned the country’s prime ministerial office into an extended advertising agency, Ilic was speaking his language... More>>

Binoy Kampmark: Funeral Rites For COVID Zero
It was such a noble public health dream, even if rather hazy to begin with. Run down SARS-CoV-2. Suppress it. Crush it. Or just “flatten the curve”, which could have meant versions of all the above. This created a climate of numerical sensitivity: a few case infections here, a few cases there, would warrant immediate, sharp lockdowns, stay-at-home orders, the closure of all non-vital service outlets...

Dunne Speaks: Labour's High Water Mark
If I were still a member of the Labour Party I would be feeling a little concerned after this week’s Colmar Brunton public opinion poll. Not because the poll suggested Labour is going to lose office any time soon – it did not – nor because it showed other parties doing better – they are not... More>>

Our Man In Washington: Morrison’s Tour Of Deception

It was startling and even shocking. Away from the thrust and cut of domestic politics, not to mention noisy discord within his government’s ranks, Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison could breathe a sign of relief. Perhaps no one would notice in Washington that Australia remains prehistoric in approaching climate change relative to its counterparts... More>>

Binoy Kampmark: Melbourne Quake: Shaken, Not Stirred

It began just after a news interview. Time: a quarter past nine. Morning of September 22, and yet to take a sip from the brewed Turkish coffee, its light thin surface foam inviting. The Australian city of Melbourne in its sixth lockdown, its residents fatigued and ravaged by regulations. Rising COVID-19 numbers, seemingly inexorable... More>>
