Hollow Men: National's Advanced Knowledge Of The Brethren Campaign
After a weekend of silence on the subject of Nicky Hager's "The Hollow Men: A Study In The Politics Of Deception." outgoing National Party Leader Don Brash has been interviewed several times this morning on his reaction to the book. His response to the key "Smoking Gun" allegation implicit in the 24th of May email addressed to him from the Exclusive Brethren is the same as that of National Leader in waiting John Key – namely, he didn't open the email.

Scoop Video: Interview With Tonga's Most Controversial Man
Tonga's pro-democracy leader, Clive Edwards, is one of the island nation's most controversial figures. He's hated by Nobles, loathed by many, his views banned by Tongan authorities. In the wake of riots that tore through Tonga's capital Nuku'Alofa, where mobs ransacked and burned the town to destruction, Edwards called for the government to relent to pressure and open the parliament to an open and free election. Scoop here publishes an extended interview with the Tongan people's representative.
