Fiji: NZ Hosted Talks Conclude - Peters Says Outcome Constructive

Scoop News Report: A meeting between Fiji's prime minister Laisenia Qarase and the island nation's military commander, Commodore Frank Bainimarama has concluded in Wellington – and while the outcome of the meeting remains secret, New Zealand foreign minister, Winston Peters, said it was constructive. Peters mediated the meeting seeking to ease tensions between the two men at a special summit organised by him and Prime Minister Helen Clark in an attempt to avert a coup from being carried out by Fiji's military.

    Politics: Are Key's Former Climate Change Pronouncements Now Inconvenient Truths?

    "I firmly believe in climate change and always have," was new National Party Leader John Key's answer to nine-till-noon interviewer Kathryn Ryan earlier this week when asked whether the climate was being affected by Greenhouse gas emissions. Mr Key was something less of an eco-warrior a year earlier however when speaking in the House about the Climate Change Response Amendment Bill in mid-2005.

    Philip Temple: Hang On A Minute, Mate
    Peter Dunne quietly omits some salient facts when arguing for retention of MMP’s coat-tailing provision that allows a party to add list seats if it wins one electorate and achieves more than 1% or so of the party vote... More>>


    Cheap Grace And Climate Change: Australia And COP26

    It was not for everybody, but the shock advertising tactics of the Australian comedian Dan Ilic made an appropriate point. Australia’s Prime Minister Scott Morrison, a famed coal hugger, has vacillated about whether to even go to the climate conference in Glasgow. Having himself turned the country’s prime ministerial office into an extended advertising agency, Ilic was speaking his language... More>>


    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: 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>>
