No 1080 for Wellington – or New Zealand

Predator-Free Wellington’s ambitious goal of being the world’s first predator-free capital is not reliant on 1080; they are using traps, and while the politicians in Wellington tell the rest of New Zealand that 1080 is a great option, it’s obviously not desired in their own back yard. New Conservative is calling for the replacement of

Water or Unity?

Freshwater has become yet another opportunity to divide New Zealand by ethnicity arising from the Waitangi Tribunal report released yesterday.

Another Child Homicide

The death of another innocent baby reported last night is an indictment on this government’s ability to provide fundamental protection to the sanctity of human life. “Worrying more about cultural sensitivities than human life our MPs are placing more children at risk,” says Elliot Ikilei, New Conservative Deputy Leader.

Inconvenience Brings Capital Punishment

Parliament has yet again failed to represent the will of the people, reflected in a NewsHub poll showing 75% opposition to this Bill, in passing the Abortion Legislation Bill through its first reading.

More to Trade Training Than Funding

Bad Law Creates Fall Out

The deal that was struck between Te Kawerau ā Maki, the mana whenua of Ihumātao, and Fletchers, via the chosen and mandated negotiator, Te Warena Taua, was a deal of mana and of sustainability, both for the archeological site and for the families who will have a chance at gaining quality development.

Government Must do More to Support Israel

Relationships between Israel and New Zealand continue to be damaged by our current government and there continues to be a failure to appropriately support the Jewish community.

Law Abiding Citizens Let Down Again

With the Government’s firearm buyback scheme starting to draw over 30,000 police man hours away from fighting crime, the safety of law abiding citizens is being compromised.

Prisons Need Full Body Scanners

Drug infiltration into our maximum security prisons is putting prisoners and staff at unnecessary risk, and one tool that would be of huge benefit is a full body scanner.

Will Government Insist on Passing Poor Law?

Gun Buyback? Police State.

The government’s firearm buy back scheme is not just bullying and unfair, it uses the New Zealand police to force its draconian law on law abiding New Zealanders, who are already feeling cheated and manipulated by this process.
