Government Mandates Are Leaving Children Behind

When Does The Team Of 5 Million Become The Gang Of 4 Million?

The Prime Minister’s warm smile is wearing off, and we can see the Labour government’s lack of compassion underneath. This is not the ‘Kind NZ”, that Labour promised.

Lockdowns Must Stop

Belated Action on Terrorism Laws

New Conservative believes that Labour has delayed on very important terrorism safety legislation, because of its constant focus on laws grounded in their ideology.  The terrorism laws have needed urgent action since at least March 2019, and only this recent stabbing incident has made the government speed up its action. It highlighted the weak, inadequate

The Fall of Afghanistan
