Blog Bits

  1. Fiscally Conservative Kiwi at Gotcha fisks The Standard for their response to my linking the rise in youth unemployment to the abolishment of youth rates.
  2. Chris Hipkins discovers www.data.govt.nz. I agree it is an excellent resource – Nathan Guy launched it around a week ago. I am already a frequent user.
  3. Rob Salmond and Lord Monckton exchange climate change barbs.
  4. Carmel Sepuloni blogs at Red Alert over the cutting of funding to the Manukau Family Literacy Programme. I think this is a much more worthwhile cause to champion that ACE type silk scarf dying courses.
  5. Paul at the Fundy Post lambasts Auckland University Arts Faculty for taking no action over the plagiarism of Professor Witi Ihimaera. Paul says their actions make him ashamed to be a member of the University – he is a PhD candidate.
  6. Rochelle Rees at The Standard has a very good post on the Foreshroe and Seabed Act.
  7. Crusader Rabbit points out that there were around eight times as many anti-Jewish incidents recorded by the FBI in 2007, as there were anti-Islamic incidents – 969 to 115.
