Labour Delivers Control of Fresh Water to Maori

In reality, Three Waters was always a trojan horse used by Jacinda Ardern to hide the fact that Labour was passing control of water to Maori. Since Chris Hipkins’ Affordable Water Reform does not change that, Maori control of freshwater is set to become a major election issue.

Who Owns Water?

The ownership of water is coming to the top of the political agenda with sinister connotations that it can be bought and sold and allocated on the basis of race. It is therefore timely to revert to first principles and consider just what it is the politicians are dealing with.

Goodbye Jacinda

A kind interpretation of Jacinda Ardern’s tenure is that she was naive and impressionable, and those weaknesses were manipulated, especially by the Maori caucus to advance their agenda for Maori rule.  Other interpretations are much less kind.

You Can't Take the Politics Out of Climate Change

One of the last things Jacinda asked of us in her valedictory speech was that we “take the politics out of climate change”. Let’s see this request for what it is. It’s a play to get good international headlines, and a bad idea that we should all ignore.

The Politics of Division

What happened to Posie Parker was a disgrace. The inflammatory comments by Ministers of the Crown, the false reporting by the media, the Police failing to protect a vulnerable woman in extreme danger, verged on State-sanctioned activism.

An Ugly Demonstration

Keen-Minshull’s rally was over before it had even begun – victim of the Thug’s Veto. Her right to free expression had been illegally and violently curtailed. Why, in the face of credible threats to her person, was police protection denied to Keen-Minshull and her followers?

Tribal Takeover

A tribal takeover, orchestrated by the Labour Government without any mandate from the public, is now underway in New Zealand, creating deep social unrest and division. And while the State Sector has been a priority, forcing it onto private enterprise under threat of deregulation or funding cuts, highlights the totalitarian reality of tribal rule.

Who Guards the Guards

The three pillars which underpin our way of life are: Democracy, the Market Economy and The Common Law. These pillars are being eroded by the present government with the push for a tribally based society and the backlash which has forced a Prime Minister from power and replaced her with a trick cyclist who is displaying impressive skills of back peddling.

The War on Woke

Labour is the champion of woke. Under the watch of our new Prime Minister, New Zealand has been transformed into ‘woke’ society where anyone questioning any aspect of the Government’s social justice agenda is treated as an enemy and cancelled.

Stopping the Woke Wave

A number of writers have noted that the woke ideology is now so entrenched in our institutions that it presents a genuine threat to Western culture.  The term 'woke' is now associated with intolerance and over-righteous zealots who believe they are morally superior.
