Ministry of Truth

If it is the Minister’s role to monitor his staff, what’s to stop the Ministry of Truth from becoming the Ministry of Lies and muzzling those who wish to take a contrary view to the Government’s position.

Justice Minister seriously compromised on referendum votes

Looks like Andrew Little has already dug himself into a hole over his hare-brained scheme to monitor, and somehow regulate, our views and opinions next year when it comes to votes on weed, euthanasia and the government itself.

The Politics of Zero Carbon

The National Party is about to make one of the biggest decision of its time in opposition - whether or not to support Jacinda Ardern’s radical Zero Carbon Bill during the third reading debate in Parliament tomorrow.

Carbon zero bill will derail our economy and wellbeing 

The Climate Change amendment (zero carbon) bill which will have major implications to our way of life is being rushed through Parliament and watching it progress is as horrifying as watching a train wreck in slow motion.

State Control

The Government of Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern is shaping up to be one of the most controlling in New Zealand’s history. Like all socialist regimes that aim to impose the will of a few onto the many, they will eventually fail because most people by their very nature do not want to be controlled.

Consequences of the Christchurch Call: Social engineering by internet platforms?

When seventeen countries, the European Commission, and eight tech companies signed the “Christchurch Call” pledge in May, it was heralded as a triumph in the fight against the promulgation of violent extremist content online. The Call was led by New Zealand Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern and French President Emmanuel Macron.

Dangerous Alarmism

It is truly a sad commentary on the state of Western civilisation when the world stands still to hear the doomsday predictions of a child not yet old enough to be trusted to vote. It demonstrates that climate change is no longer about science but the destruction of free market economics and the rise of collective socialism.

The Extinction of Reason

The whole climate change hypothesis is a mad, nightmarish cult in which an infantile view of the world, peddling ludicrous theories of imminent apocalypse which owe more to medieval millenarian sects than modern science, is being treated as unchallengeable wisdom by a lazy and credulous adult world that has stopped asking rational questions.

Questions of Credibility

Speculative technology is no substitute for an established and lucrative industry that is being destroyed by government policy. Like the oil industry, the justification for their attack on farmers is the Prime Minister's fixation with being seen as a global leader in climate change.

Nature Rules

Climate Change Minister James Shaw has now admitted that proper research did not underpin the harsh emissions targets in the Zero Carbon Bill. He says he simply plucked the 47 percent reduction in methane out of a UN report and is now prepared to change it.
