    Still a Piece of Work

    In May I penned an article on the Prime Minister entitled A Piece of Work. You don’t expect a leopard to change its spots and in my view, she hasn’t. Her modus operandi leaves a lot to be desired. This is a woman who has no...

    Labour Aims to Win This Election on a Lie: Part 1

    It will be a more close-run thing than most people imagine, but Labour is likely to retain control of parliament after the election and secure a second term. It’s difficult to say they will ‘win’ given the vagaries of the nonsense MMP system,...

    Under 65 and Healthy Individuals Must Be Able to Get on With Life

    Jeremy Harris Jeremy Harris is a businessman and investor from Auckland, New Zealand.  Dear Prime Minister, I supported the initial national lockdown and move to quarantined borders. Over the last 5 months the situation has...

    Lockdowns Are Destructive and Wrong

    [...]This government’s strategy of addressing the Chinese virus with lockdowns whenever it pops up is nothing more than a strategy for national economic suicide. It’s utterly untenable

    Hang on a Minute, Didn’t You Say This Was the COVID Election?

    Jacinda Ardern used her second press conference yesterday to criticise the Opposition for daring to ask valid questions about her and her government's decisions. We are currently in what is traditionally a period where governments must not make major decisions without consulting...

    Did She Let the Cat Out of the Bag? At the beginning of the adjournment debate the Prime Minister made a mistake...or did she? She opened with: I move, That the House do now adjourn until 2 p.m. on Tuesday, 18 August 2020.

    The Advantages of Beauty

    Sir Bob The Herald’s Ana Samways, always good for an amusing offbeat story, reports an Australian study shows physical attractiveness results in lighter court sentences. To that I say, quite bloody right. Ugly buggers should be locked up permanently, whether guilty or not.
