Updated Firearms Policy

Since we introduced our Firearms Policy over a year ago, the legislative changes for the civilian firearms community have come thick and fast.

We have also received feedback that some

New Conservative Conference Venue Confiscated for the Second Time

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

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.

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

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
