More Evidence of the Government’s Fiscal Incompetence

Spending over $570,000 on a slide and a bit of landscaping shows total disrespect to tax paying citizens and proves yet again that this government has no connection to the budgets of ordinary Kiwis. It is no wonder Kiwibuild is such an abject failure when the government thinks this amount of money is reasonable for a

Government Looking Progressively Worse in Delayed Investigation

Today’s article in Stuff, reporting on the failures by NZ Police in giving Tarrant his NZ firearms licence, is a clarion call to Parliament to stop blaming NZ licensed firearms owners for government agency mistakes.

Black Lives Are Not Important To BLM

District Health Boards using skin colour in determining placement on surgery lists, the increasing call for splitting New Zealand up into two governments, giving extra money and power to one race over others, are ways in which the Labour/NZF/Green government increasingly has more in common with apartheid-friendly politicians from last century than timeless New Zealand

Petition of Helen Houghton Ignored

“The government is usurping parental rights when it allows the Ministry of Education to teach distorted scientific facts claiming that girls and boys can be born in the wrong body,” says Helen Houghton.

Government Rejects Opportunities for Covid Recovery

The current New Zealand government is continuing to squander opportunities to help us recover from the devastation caused by the Covid lockdown.

Government Move in the Right Direction

New Conservative supports the idea of scrapping consent requirements for small, low risk building as proposed by the government. “This is a step in the right direction of reducing government control and removing barriers for productivity,” says Party Leader Leighton Baker.

Light Rail or Something Superior?

With the pause afforded us by Covid-19, maybe it is also time for a rethink of some of our major infrastructure projects planned for the coming years. We do need to get our country moving again. We do need to create jobs. We do need to buy New Zealand Made. One project that springs to mind

Time for a Water Ministry?

Water is essential for life, it drops from the sky and makes its way on and below ground to the sea to be evaporated and dropped again. No one should own it and we need a designated system to manage it for the good of all New Zealanders. Our biggest city needs more access. So

New Conservative Will Not Work With the Coalition

Integrity: the quality of being honest and having strong moral principles. Since 2017, New Zealand has witnessed significant incompetence from the Labour/NZF/Greens government, with examples including Kiwibuild, the ‘not a slush fund’ Provincial Growth Fund, firearm debacles, under/overreaction to COVID-19, Ihumātao, University fees-free, plastic bag ban, child poverty, etc; this has been accompanied by a

Caregivers on the Critical List

Carers of the disabled and those with behavioural disorders desperately need New Zealand to come out of lockdown, as they have received no relief for 6 long weeks now. 24/7 care is massively demanding, and those of us who shower when we want, toilet at our leisure, and enjoy a quiet coffee, have little appreciation

What Lies Beneath The Checkpoints

In 2017, the coalition of Labour, NZF and the Greens took control of New Zealand thus becoming the start of a journey that originally claimed transparency, openness and kindness but has failed to deliver except in the area of removing freedoms and disempowered democracy. New Conservative has worked hard to keep New Zealanders advised of

NewsFlash

NewsFlash! Dying from anthropogenic climate change is less likely than dying from Covid-19. While Covid-19 has been blamed for around 0.1% of our deaths this year, there is no empirical evidence that human contribution to the climate has added to any fatalities. Good news for concerned students: they will not be dead in twelve years

Control, Covid and the Children of Marx

As the Lockdown has progressed, the signs of further state control over New Zealanders’ freedoms by this Labour, NZ First and Green coalition is becoming ever more apparent. We are seeing the state give itself more power, both through the suppression of civil liberties and the expansion of the state. Police checkpoints have been established

1bn Trees Just Don’t Stack Up

The government’s plan to plant one billion pine trees does not stack up economically or environmentally and needs to be dropped until the benefits can be proven to outweigh the harm. Pine trees use around 100L of water per day which means in 3.5 days those 1B trees will use the same amount of water
