SCOOP LEAD STORY
Scoop In London: NZ Memorial Heralds ANZAC Spirit In London

Defence Photo Essay - The unveiling of the New Zealand Memorial in London's Hyde Park provided the chance for Kiwi ex-pats to wander along and show their respects to the veterans that had made the trip over and, also to pay their respects to those that have fallen in battle. While Scoop was busy getting the vibe from the ex-pat Kiwi community the official New Zealand Defence Force photographer Rachel Main had what many English Paparazzi can only dream about – the chance to snap the entire Royal family at the unveiling of the New Zealand Memorial.

    Health News: PHARMAC Under-Provides Needy By $19.4 Million

    Scoop
Image - PHARMAC's announcement this week of a $19.4 million budget under spend for 2006 has elicited cries of disbelief and anger from MPs, doctors and breast cancer groups alike. This continues a five year trend of budgetary under spending by PHARMAC that National MP Jackie Blue estimates now totals $73 million. The Breast Cancer Aotearoa Coalition (BCAC) was outraged by the result which PHARMAC's Acting Chief Executive Matthew Brougham described as 'excellent'. See...

    INTERNATIONAL NEWS:
    UN News: U.S. Vetos Security Council Fact-Finding Mission To Gaza

    - Exercising its veto in the Security Council today, the United States blocked a draft resolution that won the endorsement of 10 other members and would have called for a United Nations fact-finding mission in response to a recent Israeli operation in Gaza resulting in at least 18 civilian deaths.

    - Scoop's Yasmine Ryan reports that a Molotov cocktail attack on bus 32 in Marseille’s 13th arrondissement on 28 October marked the anniversary of the beginning of the 2005 riot, during which marginalised youths vented their anger at the French state. The attack left a 26 year old student, Mama Galledou, in a critical condition, with burns on 62% of her skin. It occurred in the context of similar attacks on public transport and conflict with police in other parts of France. See... Les Yeux on France: Why Marseille is Different [1]

    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...

    Digitl: Are we happy living in Handy's Age of Unreason?
    In 1989 Charles Handy wrote The Age of Unreason. It's a book that looked forward to a time where telecommuting would be an everyday reality. We live in that world today, although we use the term working from home. The book contains other predictions that were on the money... More>>


    Reactionary Succession: Peter Dutton, Australia’s New Opposition Leader
    The devastation wrought on Australia’s Coalition government on May 21 by the electorate had a stunning, cleansing effect. Previously inconceivable scenarios were played out in safe, Liberal-held seats that had, for decades, seen few, if any challenges, from an alternative political force. But the survival of one figure would have proved troubling, not only to the new Labor government, but to many Liberal colleagues lamenting the ruins. The pugilists and head knockers, however, would have felt some relief. Amidst the bloodletting, hope... 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>>




    The Conversation: Cheaper food comes with other costs – why cutting GST isn't the answer

    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>>
