Repairing the Relationship Between NZ and Israel — WOBH | Media

 

Relationships between Israel and New Zealand continue to be damaged by our current government and there continues to be a failure to appropriately support our Jewish community. Publications like Immigration New Zealand’s State of Palestine Refugee Quota fact sheet of the area, which completely omitted Israel, and Labour members’ support for BDS are prime examples.…

Hate Speech? Or Speech they Hate!

It is not hate speech that is being banned, but speech that the Left hate.

New Conservative has received a large amount of interest over the last few weeks but in the last 24 hours on-line subscriptions and members have spiked to an all time high.

The reason is primarily because social media platforms and news websites have blocked comments from some key New Conservative spokespeople. This clearly demonstrates that while these platforms think they can decide what people see and hear, the evidence clearly points to people being fed up with such muzzling and politically correct nonsense and are looking for a voice to stand up and say what they are longing to have said.

New Conservative has been at the forefront of the freedom of speech debate in New Zealand. Its deputy leader, Elliot Ikilei, has recently been the target of denial of service actions from social media platforms such as Facebook and Twitter for describing transgenderism as requiring “compassion and tolerance,” and for a clip showing an assault on families at a political rally by young men of a nearby township. Most New Zealanders are now becoming aware of the direct censorship of conservative speakers and those who are wanting to engage in robust debate.

We are in desperate need of men and women with the backbone to stand up to the imminent threat of ‘thought shaping’ that the current government and social media clearly promote.

“When a platform disallows someone to refer to scientific fact and verified occurrences, be aware that you are living in a state of growing tyranny where independent thought is actively discouraged. This has been happening in education for some years and New Conservative will not stand by and let the basic right of free speech and to be informed be snatched away from the men, women and children of New Zealand,” says Leighton Baker, New Conservative Leader.

One-Third of Voters may Vote Conservative

New Conservative is pleased that the recent poll, that suggests nearly one-third of voters would consider supporting a Conservative party, is confirming what it has suspected for some time.

“Our consistent rise in social media likes, shares, and engagements, has been indicating to us for some time that there are a significant number of people looking for a party with strong family values, and a belief in personal responsibility,” says New Conservative Leader, Leighton Baker.

New Conservative’s clear and sensible policies, along with its strong stand on social issues, have provided a party with backbone, clear intentions, and common sense, which has given hope to a population looking for answers.

Government’s role is to protect and enable, not control and dictate, and it is the move towards the latter which has many New Zealand voters concerned. Gun control with no consultation, promise of compensation without even knowing how many guns there are, media restrictions on speech and publications, and artificial restrictions on businesses and industry, are all causes for concern to Kiwis who just want to get on with their lives and support their families.

The key to recent polls is the issues that are important to voters, not who has the headlines. This is very evident in the majority of people not supporting the legalisation of cannabis – as New Conservative has been strongly opposing for some time.

“The recent trend towards Conservative policies worldwide is because they work,” says Baker.

New Conservative holds public meeting about the Botany electorate of Jami-Lee Ross

The New Conservative Party is targeting the Botany electorate of independent MP Jami-Lee Ross, saying his actions have created an opportunity there.

The party is holding a public meeting – not in Botany but next door in Pakuranga – with an advertisement saying “it’s time to listen to Botany”.

“We’ll discuss many important issues including Botany’s elected representation,” the ad says of the meeting on Friday.

Ross won the seat in the 2017 election as a National MP but refused to stand down when he was ejected from the party amid the scandal that followed his outing as the person who leaked leader Simon Bridges’ expense details.

West Coast Council Right to Ask for Facts.

Accountability.jpgAccountability to ratepayers has become a rare event for Councils, therefore West Coast Regional Council need to be applauded for their challenge of the government’s Zero Carbon Bill.

“It is critical that every expenditure that commits money collected from New Zealanders as rates or tax is satisfactorily accounted for,” says New Conservative Leader, Leighton Baker.

“West Coast Regional Council has reflected the type of governance that New Zealand should be expecting by challenging the status quo and demanding information on decisions that impact their lives.“

New Conservative backs the West Coast Council and their prudent approach to the issue of environmental protection.

Despite around $1.4Bl of New Zealand taxpayer money disappearing annually into the ether of Carbon Credits, there has been no notified effect on greenhouse gases or global warming.

It’s time New Zealand really did become an environmental Global leader by re-directing those carbon credits to directly target identified pollution.

“$1.4 billion invested into universities and research institutes would produce results that could very likely change the world and make NZ a world leader in innovative ways of reducing pollution,” says Leighton.

The west Coast would, no doubt, welcome some of that money into research on alternatives to 1080, construction of waste incinerators, saving landfills and creating energy.

Turning bio-waste into bio-fuel, research into zero emission coal and gas plants, expanding use of renewables and alternative energy sources are all topics that could get serious consideration instead of buying carbon credits which are really just a fine for not meeting agreed targets.

“The West Coast council are looking after their constituents and the New Zealand government and others elected by ratepayers could learn from that,” concludes Leighton Baker.

Getting Candid with … Elliot Ikilei

Conservative Party deputy leader and Manurewa candidate Elliot Ikilei.

Stuff.co.nz, 10th Aug 2017

Getting candid: In the lead up to the general election, we go behind the billboards and party colours to give you a ‘first person’ insight into the aspiring candidates. We are publishing their images in black and white so you can get to see them as people not just as politicians and their political brands. #gettingcandid

Elliot Ewen Pasione Ikilei​, 40, Manurewa candidate for The Conservative Party. He lives in Papakura.

I’ve lived five years south side, grew up east side (Pt England, Glen Innes, Mt Wellington), teen years in Kirikiriroa (Hamilton).

Give me three words that come to mind when I say ‘South Auckland’?

Family, community, authenticity.

Where’s the best place to buy dinner in your electorate?

My personal favourite for breakfast is Classic Cafe in Clendon. Lunch is between Melba or Malaysian Corner in Southmall, and dinner is between RSA buffet or Food Junction. I love the coffee in Urban Soul, BP in Weymouth and Classic Cafe on Browns Rd. We have heaps of awesome eateries in Manurewa.

What’s one piece of wisdom you’d like to pass on to others, particularly young people?

Your actions today determine your destiny tomorrow.

What’s one trial or struggle that you’ve overcome?

Who is the Kiwi you admire most and why?

My wife Eona, my grandmother Fanela Ikilei, my mother Dianne Hohaia, father Pasione Ikilei, my siblings, aunties, uncles, cousins. I admire them and they are part of me as I walk and talk.

When I’ve got a few free hours I like to …

Battlefield.

Tell us what your party’s policies will do for people in this community?

Manurewa has not had a voice to protect the family for over six years. In that time Manurewa has been used as a ‘safe seat’ in order to try and push three anti-family bills. The Conservative Party released policies, long before the incumbent party, that place family as the most important organisation within society. Read through them, you will see quick fast our protection of this foundational pillar. At my first public debate at the University of Auckland, with the 10 big parties present, I was the only pro-life candidate there, and was booed for it. I was proud to stand up for our unborn children then, and proud to stand up for them now. We also have an awesome justice and youth crime policy which is firm, fair and with appropriate correction without the vengeance. We are the frontline, we know what works and what doesn’t. And our binding citizens’-initiated referendum. The referendum is our founding policy, brought in due to government ignoring every single referendum held thus far, our binding referendum is one that no other party has. No ruling government can veto our binding referendum.
