Public Address 20/06/06 - The truth is, Keith Ng never left you.

Will they make O'Reilly sweat? | Nov 20, 2008 08:20
Russell Brown's Hard News
The Irish Times has a useful story about the backdrop to Tony O'Reilly's bid to sell his company's 39.1% stake in APN, the company that owns a decent chunk of our media landscape. The key thing to look for is that the O'Reilly-controlled Independent News and Media has...

There is no depression in New Zealand. Apparently. | Nov 20, 2008 01:40
The truth is, Keith Ng never left you.
The US presidential system is a beautiful thing – when it's all over, the losing candidates' first job is to remind their supporters that the campaign is over: Respect democracy, respect the nation, respect the new leadership.,

Hadyn Green yells. A lot.
I'm writing this before I head down to watch the Munster game. I'm looking forward to it because I'm a big Munster fan. I've got the entire first season on DVD (ho ho, although seriously I do). But what I really want to talk about are statistics. [Note: the bit...

And a Pony. A Sparkly One. | Nov 19, 2008 12:18
Emma Hart said so, that's why.
You know what it's like. You get back to the internet after a break, and the first thing you do is find out what the s*x blogs are doing, right? Right? While I was gone, Australia made me a political party. I'll admit at this point I was...

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>>
