Graham Adams

The philosopher stoned for his defence of science 

Robert Nola’s academic specialty is the philosophy of science but the Royal Society is investigating him over what it claims are “misguided” views regarding Māori knowledge.

Three Waters Update - December 2021

Please be assured most of your mayors will push back on any aspect of the proposals that impact our democracy - and there are many. At the end of the day, can the mandates survive a change of government? NO

The Mātauranga Māori - Science Debate

The Royal Society Te Apārangi should review its actions in order to avoid considerable damage to its reputation as a proponent of research, science and technology in New Zealand. New Zealand should be proud to have internationally highly-acclaimed academics who are the conscience and critic of our society rather than attempt to silence them.

Pae ora adopts the Ministry’s lopsided application of a suspect definition and goes further to create a serious structural imbalance where the determinant is race, not health needs.

Official author of All Blacks’ haka was a mass-murderer 

It is likely that, in future years, the great majority of New Zealanders will look back on the Ka Mate haka with a good deal of embarrassment at the naivety and sheer historical ignorance displayed by their government, sports officials and the game’s participants.


Graham Adams

Economic and Health Effects of Mass Covid-19 Vaccination

From these results it seems that mass vaccination is some sort of get-out-of-jail card, as a way to get out of ruinously expensive lockdowns and allow some rebound in economic activity.

They are Laughing in Our Faces

There are literally tens of thousands of professional climate activists working on a full-time basis and drawing wages funded by these “philanthropists”. They make up the bulk of the non-delegates at the Glasgow convention. What hope does common sense or moderation have in the face of such an army of propagandists? 


Mark Hanson

Repealing Act of Parliament

New Zealand faces a major challenge to the future of its democracy, through the coming to power of the current Prime Minister Jacinda Arden. With a communist, socialist and dictatorial background, she has changed history by closing down both the economy and parliament with the excuse of Covid.
