Stepping Off the Bench

The Judicial oath requires the newly appointed judge to discharge the office “without fear or favour affection or ill will.” It is well established that any criticism of a judge’s decisions should be moderate, factual, and tempered with respect. The consequences of a loss of public confidence in the office of Judge are incalculable.

Olympic Success - Political Failure

New Zealand is at a crossroads. If Kiwis don’t proactively back a colour-blind future - united by what we have in common instead of divided by our differences - then that small group of radical extremists, who already have their hands on the levers of power, will replace democracy with tribal rule.

Risk Assessments are not Threat Assessments

The Climate Change Minister James Shaw has published a Risk Assessment of the effects of global climate change on New Zealand during the next 5 years. It is a massive document which which will form the basis of a National Adaptation Plan in the next few months.

Climate Change - natural phenomenon or man-made "threat"

So, the Climate Change Commission has produced their final report after careful consideration of the public submissions, and it's essentially the same as the draft report. The Treaty is mentioned 193 times and the report recommends “a Maori-led approach to ensure an equitable transition” - remind anyone of He Puapua?

Climate Commission's Radical Plan

According to the IPCC, once a country has an ETS in place, no other policy interventions are necessary: “if a cap and trade system has a sufficiently stringent cap to affect emission‐related decisions, then other policies have no further impact on reducing emissions”.

Commissioning Transformation

The Climate Commission’s first report is a huge disappointment. It is little more than a well-polished propaganda vehicle. With its woke-word-smithed style, it could just as easily have been published by Greenpeace...

Resetting Politics and the Media

For those who support free markets, the Great Reset is alarming - as is the reset that is presently taking place within our media.
