The Controversial Zero Carbon Bill

A Bill that is currently in front of Parliament will have serious implications for the future of our economy if passed in its present form. Unfortunately few understand the magnitude of what is being proposed and to date it has attracted little attention.

The 2019 ‘Wellbeing’ Budget

The Budget reveals that under the stewardship of Jacinda Ardern’s Government, New Zealand’s economic growth has fallen from 3.2 percent last year to 2.4 percent this year. Treasury attributes this to a drop in migration and a collapse in business investment growth from 6.8 percent last year to 0.7 percent this year.

Expert Group Proposes Increased Dependency

The Labour Government’s $2 million Welfare Expert Advisory Group’s report was made public last Friday - in the same week that labour market figures showed the number of New Zealanders with jobs had fallen by 4,000 in the past three months. If enacted, their 42 recommendations would dramatically deepen the dependency trap.

Undermining Democracy in New Zealand

The growth in race based representation in local and central government - through appointment rather than election – is increasing public concern. The on-going drive by iwi leaders to institutionalise 50:50 co-governance is a growing threat to our democracy.

Increasingly, local bodies and successive governments have been transferring responsibilities for control of resources that we all use and cherish to unelected, unaccountable representatives of tribal groups.

Implementing the United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples

UNDRIP is a a powerful weapon for Maori supremacy - a lever to set in motion an agenda which would see the tribal elite assuming higher authority over domestic matters than other New Zealanders.

NZ’s right to bear arms?

New Zealand has avoided many irreconcilable political fights over competing values. Now an ignorant generation are looking for ways to anger their opponents by deliberately kicking sleeping dogs - focusing on differences instead of shared values.

A Totalitarian State

The leadership of a nation operates on many levels. While the PM has been focussed on the suffering of the victims, in her desire to reassure New Zealanders that they are safe - and to look strong and decisive on the world stage - she has unleashed measures that have the capacity to turn our wonderful country into a totalitarian state.

The Partnership Deception

The whole spectrum of special Maori rights - including co-governance rights - is a massive deception built on the false premise of ‘partnership’ touted as law. It is constitutionally impossible for a 'partnership' to exist between the sovereign and the governed.

Ethnic Taxation

Clearly this vital and intelligent young woman, our Prime Minister, has simply never read let alone made any attempt to understand the Treaty of Waitangi. It must follow that she is unaware of any of the jurisprudence surrounding it’s the lawful interpretation.
