Robson Peace Tour Continues!

29th September 2001

The National Give Peace A Chance Tour, organised by Staunch Alliance, hits Wellington and Dunedin this week, giving students their last chance to hear Matt Robson, Alliance MP and Minister of Disarmament, speaking on war, peace, nukes and terrorism.

"Matt's great reception by students in the north has been very encouraging," said Julie Fairey, National Co-Spokesperson for Staunch Alliance, the youth and student wing of the Alliance Party. "As war seems more and more likely it is heartening to see such a strong commitment to peace, from both Matt and students."

Gordon Campbell: On That $4 Billion Hit To National’s Economic Cred

National released its economic and tax policy last Friday. Weirdly, the plan was announced right at the end of the news week, when whatever impact it managed to generate would be likely to dissipate over the weekend. Well…. that now seems all for the best. The plan is now known to have a $4 billion hole in it. Apparently, National used outdated figures for the amount it stood to save from NOT paying into the Super Fund. Amusingly, the $4 billion mistake was almost exactly the same size as the $4.7 million that National still promises to give away in tax cuts... More>>
