The Smoking Gun In The Hollow Men

24 May 2005: "Good afternoon Don and John, Doug Watt and myself enjoyed your presentation this morning at the Millennium Hotel. However as backers of the recent "Wake Up NZ" campaign ($350,000) and as responsible for a very extensive election campaign ($1,000,000) with the sole goal of "Getting Party Votes for National" a meeting following on from our one last week with Steven Joyce is important." - Since the injunction against publication was finally lifted shortly before midday today C.D. Sludge and the Scoop Team have been furiously speed-reading Nicky Hager's expose of the life and times of National Party Leader Don Brash a.k.a. Hollow Men: A Study In The Politics Of Deception.

    Health: Hodgson Admits Dioxin Numbers Flawed

    The admission by Health Minister Pete Hodgson that there are errors in a key health study of residents exposed to dioxin in New Plymouth means that the completed peer reviews of the study should now be scrapped, Green Party Health Spokesperson Sue Kedgley says. In 2005, the Health Ministry released a study into dioxin levels in the community adjacent to a chemical plant. Image (c) Greenpeace See... Dioxin peer reviews should now be scrapped [1]

    Biden In Tokyo: Killing Strategic Ambiguity
    Could it have been just another case of bumbling poor judgment, the mind softened as the mouth opened? A question was put to US President Joe Biden, visiting Tokyo and standing beside Japan’s Prime Minister Fumio Kishida: “You didn’t want to get involved in the Ukraine conflict militarily for obvious reasons. Are you willing to get involved militarily to defend Taiwan if it comes to that?” The answer: “Yes. That’s a commitment we made.”.. More>>

    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>>

    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>>

    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>>
