Unwinding Labour’s Agenda

Using Letters of Expectation Labour’s Ministers were able to put He Puapua into effect, away from the spotlight of public scrutiny, transforming institutions into agents of radical indoctrination. Under their directives virtually every government organisation was required to prioritise the Treaty and Maori interests. Such requirements are now endemic.

Rebooting Our Universities and the Science System

A critical issue for universities throughout the Western world, has been an ideological shift away from institutional political neutrality, and a focus on teaching and research excellence, towards the critical social justice politics of diversity, equity, and inclusion. DEI agendas focus mostly on race and gender identity issues and have become oppressive and exclusionary.

PM Speech at Ratana

The Government will honour the Treaty. But unlike the Labour government, we will honour it without moving away from equal voting rights, without creating complex co-governance bodies and bureaucracies in Wellington to decide how central services should be delivered in the regions, and we will honour it while upholding the equality of all New Zealanders before the law.

Aspirational Reform

The problem we face is that few political leaders have the vision or courage to introduce transformational reforms that will genuinely empower New Zealanders to build a brighter future for themselves and their families.

Why a Lack of Imagination and Courage Threatens Our Future

The Ardern government, like the Key and Clark governments before them, tried to tax the nation to prosperity. The principal outcome being to cut productivity growth in the same way it has in the past.

The 2023 Election in Retrospect

Our finally completed election results need to be viewed on several levels. On the surface, the change of government was caused because Jacinda Ardern’s and Chris Hipkins’ Labour ministries were weak in personnel and unable to extract even respectable performance from the current feeble bureaucracy when dealing with bread and butter issues.

A Big Idea

How on earth has a fiercely independent nation like New Zealand, with its number eight fencing wire heritage and strong pioneering spirit, reached a point where The Government is doing almost everything for us – including feeding our children? The answer is simple. Because we, the people, let them! But its now time to take the country back!

A Betrayal of Trust

With the Maori seats now leading to the undermining of equal rights and the Rule of Law - in violation of Section 19(1) of our New Zealand Bill of Rights that guarantees all New Zealanders freedom from discrimination based on race - surely it’s time they were removed so New Zealand can once again become a country of equals.

The Universal University

When a university no longer commits to the principle of universalism it can neither claim, nor does it deserve, the title of university. We need to ask why our universities - among the best in the world throughout the 20th century - have in great haste and without debate, embraced anti-universal decolonisation and indigenisation.

If I Wanted New Zealand to Fail

If I wanted New Zealand to fail... To suffer, not prosper; to despair, not dream. I would start with democracy itself. I would say it is not working. I’d say that a House of Representatives that represents all people, does not suit a modern society. I’d call it old-fashioned...
