Setting New Zealand Up to Fail

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.

Official Cash Rate Surprise

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'!

Race-based Power and Influence

This whole crusade against Oranga Tamariki is a well-orchestrated campaign of gross misinformation that’s being driven by Maori leaders to try to shift public opinion to view the State as the villains in Maori child abuse statistics. Their aim is to force the Government to pass control of child protection to them.

A child’s ethnicity shouldn’t outweigh their safety

No abuse or re-abuse of children is acceptable. But the facts show that family members and parents posed the greatest danger to these victims. This suggests that where the state primarily fails is in poor decision-making and monitoring of risk. Which calls into question whether the very best interests of the child are being put first and foremost.

Ihumātao reflects the Zeitgeist of 2019

A Sacrificial Lamb

The Prime Minister’s plan is to put so much pressure on farmers that she will drive them out of business – just as occurred in the coal industry, and oil and gas. So exactly how is she doing this? Here are five ways.

The Best Interests of the Child

Even though the evidence is overwhelming that child abuse most often occurs in single parent families on welfare, tragically, the State still continues to pay vulnerable young women with little education and few prospects, to have and raise children on their own. And the more children they have, the more money they receive.
