The Book Don Brash Doesn't Want NZ To Read – Revealed

Listen To Nicky Hager Press Conference [1]
Read The "Hollow Men" Press Kit [2]
[3] After torturing political insiders for more than a year the secret of who had Don Brash's emails has finally been revealed - New Zealand's leading investigative journalism sleuth and author Nicky Hager. This morning at 11am Mr Hager held a press conference to announce the existence of a book "Hollow Men: A Study In The Politics Of Deception" which – thanks to Friday's injunction obtained by Don Brash against John and Jane Doe – cannot now be sold and acquired for the nation's Christmas stockings.

    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: 25 Years Of MMP - And The Government Wants To Make It Harder For Small Parties
    This week marks the 25th anniversary of the New Zealand’s first MMP election. Over the last quarter century, the MMP electoral system has led to our Parliament becoming more socially and ethnically diverse, more gender balanced, and to a wider spread of political opinion gaining representation. Or, as one of my former colleagues observed somewhat ruefully at the time, Parliament starting to look a little more like the rest of New Zealand... More>>

    Eric Zuesse: China Says U.S.-China War Is Imminent

    China has now publicly announced that, unless the United States Government will promptly remove from China’s Taiwan province the military forces that it recently sent there, China will soon send military forces into that province, because, not only did the U.S. secretly send “special operations forces” onto that island...

    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>>
