With recent news on COVID Plan B's Simon Thornley and now parliamentary staffer Ani O'Brien considering legal action against libellous harassment, I thought I would share my experience in this area.

Hate speech is back on the menu — Tova O'Brien's interview with Justice Minister Kris Faafoi was eyebrow raising. If I write an opinion piece 'Jacinda Ardern is a communist or a dictator', could I be stung for hate speech? Instead of just saying "no", we're given a very bizarre answer where Kris ...

We don't have to defend bad behaviour, we don't have to stand up for someone with a nasty attitude, but we should defend people's right to freedom of expression.

Banning "hate" against religion is a return of our recently vapourised blasphemy laws, but with more teeth. Nature abhors a vacuum. A society must have some form of blasphemy laws.

A subtle shift that has taken place with recent lockdowns here that I felt obliged to comment on. Last week, the Ministry of Health COVID-19 website was updated with the following ...

In the early days of this incarnation of cancel culture (c. 2016-2018) it was wise to oppose it, but few did. Now we're well past the point of no return. The tide is coming in, and only a fool would dare to oppose it.

What are you doing to make the spaces you spend your time in better? A supporter sent in the following positive message.

Ultimately all the equality and anti-separatism fighting comes from good intent, but it's a trap. It will always be framed by the evil journalist class as inverted. So as a 2021 New Year's Resolution, why don't we just stop doing it?

Last year was a bit of a wild one for me, and not one I plan to repeat. Yet the path it's started me down has to continue. Now a year on from the police raid in January, things progress slowly.

I was struck by two stories this week. The first that abortions are up by 9% and the second that the nation's fertility rate dropped to its lowest ever of 1.63 children per woman.

Based in Canada, Choice42 is one of the few pro-life groups who openly call abortion out for what it is: murder and child sacrifice. The uncompromising visuals are what makes this short video a powerful work of art.

I've always loved American politics, even if purely for the entertainment factor. On November 3rd, President Trump won the legal vote by a huge margin and the Republican party made historic gains down ballot.

The Green party always seems to pick the weirdest and worst examples of immigrants as MPs. They've really outdone themselves this time with Ricardo Menendez, a Spaniard hailing from Mexico.

There will be no livestream tonight, or next Friday, as Trad Tasman Talk is taking a break. I believe that Tim will be doing Friday episodes of Wilms Front instead if you'd like to follow some Australian politics.

The following was sent to me by Justin Cook: I was looking in my spam folder for an email and came across this. It's been sent to my email but I'm not the intended recipient.

We must acknowledge that Jacinda Ardern is John Key 2.0. She loves to be the messiah of the nation, and so she's far more likely to follow Labour's neoliberal manifesto than usher in some kind of communist dystopia.

We're right in the middle of being allowed to vote on the greatest issues of our time: smoking joints, state-sanctioned murder, and who gets to manage our national decline over the next three years.

I have a problem that I'd like to share with you. It's a problem that I face from my perspective as a Christian, but I think many people of other persuasions will see a close parallel to their own experience.

What does it mean to be a conservative? What does it mean to do conservatism? Conservatism isn't a rigid ideology or 100 page manifesto that one can pick up and read for the definitive answer.
Premier League, football, Black Lives Matter

Just sent this e-mail to the virtue signalling fools at the Premier League. Felt good. In February 2018 Pep Guardiola was fined GBP20,000 by the Football Association for wearing a yellow ribbon on the sidelines of a Premier League game in support of the imprisoned leaders of the Catalan ...
