Governing for Every New Zealander

I wonder if Jacinda Ardern understands that governing for every New Zealander means setting aside policies that are driven by extremism in favour of those that represent the public interest?

United Nations Agenda 2030

Let's make no mistake that behind the smiles, sits the most radical socialist government in our history, with a Prime Minister intent on embedding the objectives of the world’s most socialist organisation into our policy and legislative framework.

We Don't Know How Unlucky We Are In NZ

Our small population size has fostered a social conformity that makes it hard to speak one’s mind. With two-degrees-of-separation, you cannot afford to burn bridges. And given our latent inferiority complex, we don’t publicly admit to our problems

Repealing Democratic Rights

The reality is that New Zealanders do not want to be defined by race – including most of those of Maori descent. The only people who want to divide the country by race are a small but vocal minority of dangerous activists pushing for Maori sovereignty.

The Destruction of Democracy

I have just resigned from the Northland Regional Council on a matter of principle, over how ONE vote can change a century old system of electing our local decision makers. To alter the electoral system to introduce separate seats based on race without a poll being taken of the community is abhorrent.

Attacking Free Speech

The freedom of expression is a bedrock New Zealand value. The last thing we need is the chilling effect of Big Brother watching - policing our speech and monitoring our every utterance, telling us which words we can and cannot use.

What No-One Talked About During the 2020 Election Campaign

It’s no exaggeration to say that Western civilisation and Western democratic values are under attack as never before in modern history. The breadth, intensity and viciousness of this attack is breathtaking.

A Covid Win

Labour has been given an historic mandate to govern alone. They have committed to rebuilding the economy through economic growth. How well they can achieve that goal will determine whether they deserve to govern in three years’ time.

Election 2020 Reflections and 2023 Projections

Labour will be solely responsible for its achievements over the next three years, and fully accountable for its failures. Those who believe in the merits of a free market economy will have a historic opportunity to reaffirm the long-proven truth that the socialist ideal of a utopian society is a myth.

Election 2020 - final thoughts

It was Labour’s handling of the pandemic that has played a central role in creating the country’s worst economic outlook in nearly a century.
