Anti-Smacking Law Starts To Bite

If for for nothing else, Labour deserves to be turfed from office for their anti-smacking legislation. Parents will increasingly come to fear their neighbours and their kid’s schools. Who might “dob them in” for disciplining an unruly child? Schools and caregivers are also in an unenviable position. Do they report rumoured corporal punishment to the [...]

Tariana Turia’s Marxist Mentor

Maori party founder and co-leader Tariana Turia is well respected across the political spectrum. Like her Party, Mrs Turia is very hard to pin down to a specific ideology. In some areas she is conservative, in others she is liberal and others she is socialist. The socialist aspect probably derives from her political awakening in [...]

NCEA students are now entering the universities, where examinations are the norm and students are still measured against their peers. How is the NCEA “crop” measuring [...]

Who Supports New Zealand’s "Terrorists"?

It is my contention that the 17 “terrorists” arrested last Monday are part of two, possibly three, major interrelated international networks. I believe that NZ Maori radicals have links with indigenous revolutionary and activist networks worldwide, particularly in the US, Canada, the Philippines, the Pacific and Latin America. I believe this network is allied to [...]
