As China and America lock horns in a trade war and with the enormous build up of naval hardware in the South China Sea, it is becoming increasingly likely that NZ is going to get dragged into this geopolitical vortex.Read More →
Maybe it’s me getting old and seeing looming economic crashes and environmental meltdowns that will demand a level of co-operation amongst our squabbling tribes that is making me so reflective but the entire Israel Folau issue just seemed like a terrible missed opportunity.Read More →
The reality is the crippling underfunding of Auckland’s infrastructure will require more than $28billion to seriously get the city moving.Read More →
Wait, what? There hasn’t been any oversight of our mass surveillance Intelligence apparatus since 2016?
National built a mass surveillance deep state, the supposed checks and balances to that deep state are a joke and mere window dressing.Read More →
To date, the National Party have behaved like a spoilt child convinced that somehow they were tricked and robbed into losing the election.Read More →
…the NZ cops knew Roberto Conchi Harris was bent, but used his testimony to arrest and send Tamihere down. Harris has gone down for 8 years and 7 months for his role in framing Tamihere, but what about the NZ cops who used him?Read More →
…Hosking is criticising Clarke for responding to a fellow Herald’s character assassination as if it’s Clarke’s fault????Read More →
Jones however correctly identifies the way in which the neoliberal Public Service bureaucracy slow down any actual ability to change things in NZ. This is a difficult reality for the Left to get their heads around, we have always seen the State as the means to create egalitarianism, what the new Government is quickly learning however is that the Ministries are fiefdoms of their own and serve in their interests, not the interests of NZ.Read More →

The Herald have had the audacity to pick up on their own columnists smear job on Clarke with an unnamed ‘story’ covering the outrage they created.
Clickbait using clickbait.Read More →
Banning the benefit for a Tinder date?!? This is why we still can’t trust Labour, the Greens & NZ First

I’ve grown to like Deborah Hill Cone. The neurotic insightfulness of privilege after two bottles of white wine on a Wednesday in Devonport mixed with prescription drugs never sounded so self assured.
There are times she soars with enlightenment, cheers with genuine humour and preaches with conviction.
This hate column attacking Clarke Gayford however, sure as fuck isn’t one of them.Read More →
If students want to keep their libraries and reject the hollowness of neoliberal culture myths, they must fight to bring back Universal Student Membership.Read More →
Opponents of Trump like to point to the Russian interference in the election to explain Trump winning, but I think blaming Russia for ‘hacking’ the US Election is deeply counter productive.Read More →
