2: Americas Cup Challengers Face Light Air Of Change

Today's racing brought a change of conditions from the past two days, heavy Northerlies giving way overnight to gentle South winds blowing from 7-13 knots. The winds were shifty however, both in velocity and direction, and the afterguards earned their ...

3: ELECTION 1999: Jonathan Hill's Election Prediction

Right. As the chances of getting this right are slim indeed, this guess is purely on gut feeling. I'm picking a week of negative campaigning from National is not going to wash well with voters and will eventually be to the party's detriment.

4: ELECTION 1999: Alastair Thompson’s Predictions

I find it hard to agree with the prevailing media opinion that this election is headed for a cut and dried victory to Labour. Most of the media commentary on this subject is based on the grand convergence of polls this last Friday.

7: Selwyn Manning's Election Predictions

Isn’t democracy a fine thing. Just when it seems this country has been governed by self perceived born to rule cronies forever, the population deals out a right old telling off. Yip, here in south Auckland, three terms is long enough. That’s the ...

11: Upton On Line - A lesson from history

Last night's Crossfire on TVNZ with the Prime Minister delivered us yet again the familiar image of Mrs Shipley fighting valiantly under the constant attention of two Bren guns rat, tat, tatting away. In upton-on-line's humble estimation, Mike ...

12: Americas Cup - Twas Another Strange Day's Sailing

Thursday's racing started under heavy conditions, the wind blowing from the North at near 20 knots, the seas heavy with a two metre swell. What followed was a day of postponements, withdrawals, penalties and an outstanding display of aggressive ...

13: Scoop Column: UN Monitors Need For NZ Election Too

New Zealand loves nothing better than to certify other countries' election ballots as "free and fair" so there can hardly be any principled objection to a delegation of monitors, from democratic nations, taking up position, pen in hand, ...

15: HARD NEWS 19/11/99 - MMP = More Moral Panic

GOOD DAY MEDIAPHILES ... trust the Tories, eh? Put them under pressure and they try and manufacture a moral crisis. There's been Ecstasy, there's been Home Invasions - and this week it's drugs and terrorism with the Green Party.

After observing the celebrations of the last completely odd day for 1112 years last Friday, Scoop on a hunch decided to check whether the date was also a prime - that is, a number indivisible.

Today, Scoop welcomes Barb Sumner to our columnist fold. Barb is a freelance writer, a regular in "Grace" and "Metro" and occasionally in the NZ Herald. She warns: some consider her works "too extreme". You be the judge.

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.

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>>
