Premier League, football, Black Lives Matter
by Owen LLewellyn · 18/06/2020 11pm
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 ...

One New Zealand
by Owen LLewellyn · 05/01/2019 10am
The time has come for a genuine people’s party in New Zealand politics. The recently formed One New Zealand Party is set to break the mould of politics in this country. Whilst the majority of Kiwis have been busy working hard at their jobs and businesses and bringing up their families, the ...
Islamic European Immigration

The new Labour-led government’s plans for its first 100 days has a depressing inevitability about it. Various lollies handed out to key voting blocks - students get the first year of tertiary education free and an extra $50 a week living allowance; family allowances to increase, and sundry other measures with cost implications

Jacinda Ardern Communist
by Owen LLewellyn · 29/10/2017 7pm
With Jacinda Ardern duly sworn in as Prime Minister, what can we expect to see over the next 3 or more years? In a nutshell: more government, more taxes, and more centralised control. You won’t be surprised to hear any of that, but we can also expect more poverty. “No. Surely not,” you point out. “ ...
ACT New Zealand needs to hit the reset button big time and it will be much easier to do that in opposition.  They need to get back to their roots and be loud and proud as the Libertarian/Classical Liberal voice of New Zealand.
by Owen LLewellyn · 26/09/2017 4pm
ACT will not be part of any coalition government this term. Good. ACT New Zealand needs to hit the reset button big time and it will be much easier to do that in opposition. They need to get back to their roots and be loud and proud as the Libertarian/Classical Liberal voice of New Zealand. Their ...

The Greens In New Zealand Also Abuse Taxpayer Funds
by Owen LLewellyn · 05/08/2017 5pm
The Unshackled exposes the rank hypocrisy of the Greens on both sides of the Tasman : The Australian Greens like to think of themselves as the moral arbiters of the nation. They rage against the major parties’ MPs abusing their entitlements but we later learn that they are not much better. Just ...
Gareth Morgan of The Opportunities Party.  Globalist.
by Owen LLewellyn · 22/07/2017 9pm
I’ve never met Gareth Morgan, but for some reason I find him intensely annoying. There’s something rather condescending and patronising about him, or at least how he comes across in his many media offerings. He definitely has a chronic case of cleverest-person-in-the-room syndrome. The instant ...
Pepe the Frog
by Owen LLewellyn · 15/07/2017 2pm
I’m not sure if Kirsty Johnston’s article about the ‘Alt Right’ in New Zealand was more disingenuous or just hopelessly out of touch.

Brexit
by Owen LLewellyn · 21/06/2017 9pm
Where Britain is leading on this, soon many more are likely to want to follow. I say this not puerile presumption, but a tangible projection based on one very important thing: the view of Europeans themselves.
NZ gun Lobby
by Owen LLewellyn · 17/06/2017 8pm
Police Minister, Paula Bennett has held back the tide of anti-gun legislation. Rejecting 13 out of 20 recommendations of the select committee inquiry into the illegal possession of firearms.

Winston Peters kicks of the Islam debate for election year in New Zealand
by Owen LLewellyn · 11/06/2017 3pm
It was only a matter of time before Winston Peters figured out that there are growing concerns among Kiwis about the possibility of the Muslim community increasing in New Zealand and what that might mean.

Cashless society
by Owen LLewellyn · 04/06/2017 12pm
The Herald ran an article today about the possibility of a cashless society . Apparently 24% of Australians would welcome this prospect.
