Letter to the Editor: Co-governance like the House of Lords — The BFD

Dear Editor May I say how delighted I am that the Government is going down the He Puapua route and co-governance. It will remind me of the old country- Great Britain. I refer, of course, to the House of Lords, which represented the land and capital-owning aristocracy mostly from the 17th, 18th and 19th centuries. How wonderful…

Stuff’s “Our Truth” Is Part-Farce Part-Comedy — The BFD

The execrable “Our Truth” section of self-flagellating Stuff exposing their past ‘racism’ is part-farce, part-comedy.
