If Labour supporters really understood the threat to democracy the PM’s separatist agenda represents and the divided society it would create, their opposition and sense of betrayal would intensify. On this issue, we the majority have the mandate – Jacinda Ardern does not.
Jacinda Ardern has offered herself as a hostage to fortune by repeatedly denying that the doctrine of “white privilege” is being taught in schools, or that the teaching curriculum mentions it anywhere, or that it is part of her “government’s agenda”.
New Zealand’s majority Labour Government is enacting a strategy to replace democracy with tribal rule by 2040 - without the consent of the public. By deliberately concealing her He Puapua agenda for tribal co-governance from voters during the election campaign, Jacinda Ardern has knowingly orchestrated an illegitimate abuse of power.
The Public Interest Journalism Fund should be seen not as evidence of a principled, altruistic commitment to the survival of journalism, which is how it’s been framed, but as an opportunistic and cynical play by a left-wing government – financed by the taxpayer to the tune of $55 million – for control over the news media at a time when the industry is floundering and vulnerable.
It is time to put an end to deceptive politicians being able to abuse their positions of power by delivering something they did not promise when soliciting public support on the campaign trail. This kind of political dishonesty should never be allowed in New Zealand and should not be tolerated.
Increasingly we are coming to terms with the reality that ACTION will be needed to turn around the prevailing public mood; but that action cannot simply be left to someone else! Effective action will not take place by chance; it will require the participation of significant numbers in effective, planned and co-ordinated initiatives.
A bombshell ruling from the High Court, unless appealed, opens the door to tribal control of New Zealand’s entire foreshore and seabed. It represents a major setback for those who believe the country’s coastline and Territorial Sea should be owned by no-one and protected by the Crown for the benefit of all.
At the heart of the judge’s reasoning is the notion that “Tikanga”, a partly spiritual partly cultural concept comprising a number of strands of behaviour by which it is now said that Maori society ordered its affairs in times past can somehow translate to rules of law relevant to the multi-ethnic, sophisticated, and complex society which New Zealand now is.
Are you OK with a radical plan for two governments in New Zealand, one for Maori and one for everyone else, to be up and running within the next 19 years? With Nanaia Mahuta at the helm, the plan is being slipped into the system, under the radar.
