The Green Party posted the following status update unironically after Great Thunberg's United Nation's speech. The Greens act like they're still in opposition, even though the Labour Party is fully on board, with Jacinda declaring that climate change is her "nuclear free moment". Why haven't they ...

In her speech to the United Nations, our dear leader Jacinda Ardern said the following: "Our globalised, borderless world asks us to be guardians not just for our people, but for all people."

Graeme Edgeler, a Wellington barrister, has identified these as being "Henry VIII Clauses" and he objects to them because they can be used to turn citizens into criminals on an executive whim.

There have been two announcements for remembrance on Friday, one of which I support and the other which I strongly denounce. A two-minute's silence and the Islamic call to prayer will be broadcast.

Why haven't we heard about the Global Compact for Migration here in New Zealand? President Trump made waves when he rejected the Pact, due to be signed this December, nearly a year ago. Many other nations have withdrawn support, but what about us?

One of Jacinda's inevitable targets was abortion law, which she has repeatedly claimed she wants treated as a health issue that shouldn't be in the Crimes Act. This is a non sequitur. The location of abortion law, or any law, is irrelevant.

Ramadan, the holiest month in the Islamic calendar, and usually the deadliest too. Our Prime Minister, Leader of the Opposition, NZ Police, and Human Rights Commission are all joining in this celebration of an ideology with values antithetical to our own.

The latest poll provides some interesting insights into just what is going on in the political arena. While polls at this stage don't translate into actual results, they do show us just what is working and what isn't.

Last year I wrote about the demographics of the west as the controversy raged about how it was so inappropriate to ask Jacinda if she was going to have a baby. Never mind that she had told us she wanted a baby.

I know what you're thinking, but please hear me out. There have been plenty of people outraged over Mike Hosking being picked to moderate the election debates since he's considered a National Party hack. But is there any unbiased person in our media class?

It's chaos over at Green HQ, just like this time last week it was chaos over at Labour HQ. They say a week is a long time in politics. Seven days ago Andrew Little was Labour leader and the Greens had reached a new high in the polls. Jacinda Ardern has since struggled to differentiate herself, ...

Eight hours after becoming Leader of the Labour Party, Leader of the Opposition, and possibly future Prime Minister of New Zealand, Jacinda Ardern was asked the question of our time: are you planning on having children and would that affect your performance?
