    Politics News: Peters Claims National Knows Who Leaked The Emails

    Foreign Minister Winston Peters says he's aware who the email-mole is inside the National Party. He informed TVNZ's Agenda programme on Saturday that an "insider stole them from inside the National Party". Mr Peters said he had a good idea who the person was, but distanced himself from any wrongdoing in acquiring the e-mails. He said he knew where they came from "and I've got good reason to believe that." See... Peters Claims National Knows Who Leaked The Emails [1]

    Environment: Labour Welcomes National's Endorsement

    Environment Minister David Benson-Pope today welcomed National’s belated endorsement of the government’s environmental policies. “You have to wonder where Nick Smith and the National Party have been all this time and whether they have really sorted out their differences within their caucus. “The National Party has borrowed extensively from the government's Sustainable Water Programme of Action with its focus on water quality and water allocation, right down to the very detail of "transferable consents”.

    Dunne Speaks: Robertson's Budget Gamble On Treasury
    The popular test of the success or failure of Grant Robertson’s fifth Budget will be its impact on the soaring cost of living. In today’s climate little else matters. Because governments come and governments go – about every six to seven years on average since 1945 – getting too focused on their long-term fiscal aspirations is often pointless... More>>

    Keith Rankin: Liberal Democracy In The New Neonationalist Era: The Three 'O's
    The proposed ‘New Zealand Income Insurance Scheme’ (‘the scheme’) has attracted strong debate among the more left-wing and liberal groupings, within New Zealand-Aotearoa. This debate should be seen as a positive rather than negative tension because of the opportunity to consider and learn from the implications and sharpen advocacy... More>>

    Dunne Speaks: Words Matter, Prime Minister
    Words matter, especially when uttered by politicians. 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. 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>>

    As New Zealand considers the removal of the goods and services tax (GST) from food to reduce costs for low income households, advocates need to consider the impact cheap food has on the environment and whether there are better options to help struggling families... More>>
