The Government of Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern is shaping up to be one of the most controlling in New Zealand’s history. Like all socialist regimes that aim to impose the will of a few onto the many, they will eventually fail because most people by their very nature do not want to be controlled.
When seventeen countries, the European Commission, and eight tech companies signed the “Christchurch Call” pledge in May, it was heralded as a triumph in the fight against the promulgation of violent extremist content online. The Call was led by New Zealand Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern and French President Emmanuel Macron.
It is truly a sad commentary on the state of Western civilisation when the world stands still to hear the doomsday predictions of a child not yet old enough to be trusted to vote.

Speculative technology is no substitute for an established and lucrative industry that is being destroyed by government policy. Like the oil industry, the justification for their attack on farmers is the Prime Minister's fixation with being seen as a global leader in climate change.
Climate Change Minister James Shaw has now admitted that proper research did not underpin the harsh emissions targets in the Zero Carbon Bill. He says he simply plucked the 47 percent reduction in methane out of a UN report and is now prepared to change it.

The chill winds of the economic slowdown that Winston Peters predicted when he announced the new Government are here. His Government is putting New Zealand onto the path to failure.
The Reserve Bank's action says things are now more dire than they were during the Global Financial Crisis. This is in contrast to the buzz from the Beehive which is: 'Don't worry, be happy'!
Alarmism over climate change, has now reached dangerous proportions. People are literally afraid for their lives. Many do not realise that they are victims of a hyped-up political propaganda campaign.
