Karla Cardno - Mauri Pacific And Te Reo - Jack Elder - East Timor: Bishop Belo, Live In Dili, Keating - Plane Crash Caught On Film

KARLA CARDNO: Mark Middleton has been charged with threatening the life of the convicted killer and raper of Karla Cardno. He says he is prepared to go to jail rather than recant his threats against the killer of his step-daughter. Middleton made the threats on a TV show.

MAURI PACIFIC: Mauri Pacific Tau Henare has come up with a plan to preserve the Maori Language - compulsory lessons in Tikanga Maori for public servants. PSA are not sure it is a good idea. The policy could cost $25 million if it cost $100 per public servant. Other parties are not impressed - Labour and National say that compulsion is not a good idea. Henare also wants bi-lingual road signs.

JACK ELDER: Meanwhile Jack Elder is retiring from politics.

EAST TIMOR - BISHOP BELO: Bishop Carlos Belo is planning to return to East Timor tomorrow.

EAST TIMOR - DILI:: John Stuart Dili - helicopter movements at Dili airport. Pilot says he has been involved in reconnaissance work. Mail call at the NZ camp. In town crowd now openly displaying Falantil and CNRT regalia.

EAST TIMOR - DILI: Live I/V - The mood of NZ troops is cheerful. But they are concerned about the difference in their pay allowances as compared to the Australians. PM is expected to make an announcement on allowances tomorrow in Darwin. Enormous changes in Dili. Far more people on the streets. People now quite open about their support of independence - right - as you saw - under the noses of the Indonesians.

EAST TIMOR - KEATING: Paul Keating launches into East Timor crisis and gets called embittered.

PLANE CRASH: Remarkable escape for television crew in a plane crash.

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>>
