Public Address 13/11/07 - The Finance Campaign

The Finance Campaign | Nov 13, 2007 09:44
Russell Brown's Hard News
It's not so long ago that the New Zealand Herald didn't do campaigning journalism. Acting on the assumption that they were in charge of the "paper of record", the Herald's editors kept things stately and somnolent. The paper began to wake up with a change of management in the 1990s... http://publicaddress.net/default,4601.sm

Back! (And on the Crusading Herald) | Nov 13, 2007 03:23
The irony is not lost on Keith Ng
Changing countries is always a disorientating experience. You have to think in a new currency, speak in a new language, adapt to new cultural rules – and all before you get out of the airport, preferably. I knew about three words in Japanese, but fortunately, much of Japanese is written... http://publicaddress.net/default,4600.sm

Silence is golden (Talking: priceless) | Nov 11, 2007 17:48
Jolisa Gracewood in New Haven
My good name is being besmirched! Someone has been putting it about that I have been economical with the truth on the subject of parenthood. Let me unsmirch myself right here and now. All you have to do is 1) read back through the archive and 2) note... http://publicaddress.net/default,4598.sm

Dunne Speaks: Can ACT's Dream Run Continue?

By most reckonings the ACT Party has had a very successful political year. Not only has its expanded Parliamentary team settled in well to its work, without controversy or scandal, but its leader has gained in community respect, and the party’s support, at least according to the public opinion polls, has increased sharply...

Keith Rankin: Basic Universal Income And Economic Rights
"Broad growth is only going to come when you put money in the hands of people, and that's why we talk about a Universal Basic Income". [Ritu Dewan, Indian Society of Labour Economics]. (From How long before India's economy recovers, 'Context India', Al Jazeera, 31 Oct 2021.) India may be to the 'Revolution of the twenty-first century' that Russia was to the 'Revolution of the twentieth century'... More>>

Binoy Kampmark: Foreseeable Risk: Omicron Makes Its Viral Debut
It has been written about more times than any care to remember. Pliny the Elder, that old cheek, told us that Africa always tended to bring forth something new: Semper aliquid novi Africam adferre. The suggestion was directed to hybrid animals, but in the weird pandemic wonderland that is COVID-19, all continents now find themselves bringing forth their types, making their contributions. It just so happens that it’s southern Africa’s turn... More>>



Gasbagging In Glasgow: COP26 And Phasing Down Coal

Words can provide sharp traps, fettering language and caging definitions. They can also speak to freedom of action and permissiveness. At COP26, that permissiveness was all the more present in the haggling ahead of what would become the Glasgow Climate Pact... More>>

Globetrotter: Why Julian Assange’s Inhumane Prosecution Imperils Justice For Us All

When I first saw Julian Assange in Belmarsh prison, in 2019, shortly after he had been dragged from his refuge in the Ecuadorean embassy, he said, “I think I am losing my mind.”
He was gaunt and emaciated, his eyes hollow and the thinness of his arms was emphasized by a yellow identifying cloth tied around his left arm... More>>

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>>
