How to create a legal mechanism to promote social justice
by Gordon Campbell
Enter The ‘Wolf
Hi and welcome to the 51st edition of Werewolf in which we ponder the John Oliver question – how is the Labour Party still a thing, given the debilitating friction between its constituent parts, and despite the punching bag status to which it has been assigned by the mainstream media? For insight into the options facing Labour, Werewolf interviewed former UK Labour shadow Minister and academic Bryan Gould. Currently, Gould is leading a post mortem into Labour’s election campaign, and his review will doubtless influence the direction that Labour ‘s new leader takes the party, once elected. Amongst other things, Gould discusses what lessons UK Labour may have to offer its New Zealand counterpart.
The ebola epidemic is headline news worldwide, yet - as Werewolf reports in this month’s issue – the United Nations has directly caused an epidemic that’s still ravaging one of the poorest countries in the world, and with a death toll twice that of the current ebola outbreak in West Africa. Yet to date, the catastrophe in Haiti has received only a fraction of the global media attention devoted to ebola. Elsewhere in this issue, new Werewolf contributor Eric Crampton writes about what role the state should have - if any - when people deliberately make choices that result in harm only to themselves. Given the latest round of criticisms of RNZ’s Morning Report and of the media’s performance during the election campaign, we also explore just why media interviews have become more abrasive.
