Welcome to 2020!

January 08, 2020

2020 has started with a boom, literally, and the world now waits, with apprehension, the ramifications of the elimination of Qasem Soleimani, and the subsequent targeting of US bases.

Selfishness vs Selflessness

December 17, 2019

Misty eyed grey-heads reminisce over times gone by when a handshake was an unwritten guarantee, when people would give you the shirt off their back, and when we left our houses and cars unlocked. Did ever such a time actually exist, and if so, what happened to it?

New Zealand Needs Binding Referenda

December 15, 2019

Binding Citizens Initiated Referenda gives the population the ability and power to hold politicians to account for decisions that are unpopular and contrary to the will of the majority. It should never have to be used, as a representative government should not be passing legislation that is clearly contrary to the will of the majority. 

Curtailing the CO2 Gravy Train

November 25, 2019

New Conservative is concerned the recently endorsed Carbon Zero Bill will have little, if any, measurable benefits to New Zealand, and would remove New Zealand from the Paris Accord, abandon the ETS, and rescind the Carbon Zero Bill for the following reasons.

Touring the Country

November 19, 2019

Sue and I have had a fantastic time touring part of the North Island over the last week and getting to see the amazing countryside that makes up New Zealand.

2019 Annual Conference Report

October 15, 2019

Energized and encouraged from our fantastic conference in Wellington this weekend this thought of the week has been a couple of days in the making. Our theme………Let’s Fix This in 2020.

Seasoning Extremism With Realism

October 02, 2019

With new "data" continuing to emerge in regards to the effects of climate change on our nation, it is important that we don’t portray the extreme, almost impossible scenarios as inevitable reality.

Abortion. Government's Proposals.

August 04, 2019

Our current government is looking at changing the abortion legislation to make it abortion on demand for the first 20 weeks and then a test after that, but this ignores the question of when life starts, and that there is more than one person involved in an abortion.

An Interesting Week in Politics

June 12, 2019

It’s only Thursday but it has already been an interesting week in politics. We started with two polls, with a supposedly margin of error of 3.5%, 20% different. One showed National surging ahead of Labour and the other showed Labour able to govern alone.

Guilty! Until Proven Innoocent

May 28, 2019

Assumption of innocence has always been a foundation of New Zealand’s criminal justice system. It is protected under the NZ Bill of Rights Act 1990. In 2017 Christchurch East MP, Poto Williams, raised the idea of putting the burden of proof on the accused in the case of rape. Are we seeing an insidious change taking place?


Weekly Thought - A Few

May 16, 2019

A few thoughts to stimulate the brain this week. 

Drugs kill and hurt far more people every year than firearms, so why is the government criminalising firearm owners and decriminalising drugs?

Under the End of Life Choice Act, if passed, will Pharmac fund cancer treatment for the “terminally ill” at thousands of dollars a month, when a lethal injection costs just $50?

Are we Fighting the Right Climate War

May 11, 2019

With the introduction of the Net Zero emissions targets this week, more uncertainty and pressure has been added to both our agriculture and manufacturing industries, and for what result? It would make little to no difference to the world’s environment while penalising and crippling NZ industries.
