New Zealand has reached a turning point. Emboldened by Jacinda Ardern’s election success and the majority she now controls, demands for separatism are growing so strong that the country is in danger of becoming an apartheid nation where a minority world view is increasingly used to control the majority of the population.
The left is now in grave danger of throwing out the baby of our democracy, with the bathwater of our colonial past. But our democratic institutions, and the science, and the meritocracy that support them, have to be allowed to flourish without wrong-minded opportunism based on an appropriation of history, including the history of race.
The ‘big lie’ that is being perpetrated against New Zealand democracy is that ‘Maori are in partnership with the Crown’. The ambitious tribal elite driving this dangerous agenda are demanding supreme rights - the power to co-govern New Zealand.
There is no end to the Partnership demands which will be visited on the long-suffering majority of New Zealanders, demands which have no basis in law but which the current government shows every sign of supporting.
For those who support free markets, the Great Reset is alarming - as is the reset that is presently taking place within our media.
A brilliant politician, but a grossly incompetent administrator, Jacinda Ardern is perhaps the worst person to lead New Zealand through this economic turbulence.
Education has long been described as a passport to a better future, but with increasing numbers of students leaving school with no qualifications at all, the system appears to be failing the very children for whom it was traditionally a lifeline .
The teaching of phonics, which had previously been mainstream, was now deemed heretical. I was exaggerating only slightly when I described Doris’s clandestine activity in teaching phonics as reminiscent of Resistance operations in Nazi-occupied France.
