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

    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...

    Pacific News: EU Korea Russia Block Pacific High Seas Talks

    Fisheries talks in Hobart ended a step closer to managing fishing in the South Pacific high seas, but proposed interim fisheries and environmental measures were blocked by Northern Hemisphere fishing nations,” says Fisheries Minister Jim Anderton. “New Zealand is very pleased with the progress that’s been made towards establishing a regional fisheries management organisation for non-highly migratory fish stocks in the South Pacific,” Jim Anderton says.

    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>>

    The US Supreme Court Chief Justice was furious.

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>>
