Cindy Kiro — The BFD

Lindsay Mitchelllindsaymitchell.blogspot.com Cindy Kiro’s appointment to the role of Governor-General is political. Judging by comments on Kiwiblog people have forgotten her time as Children’s Commissioner. She advocated that every child should be interviewed or assessed before age two and again at ages five, 13, and 17 – a heavy-handed unnecessary state intervention to avoid stigmatising particular groups. …

Government Plans to Please No One — The BFD

As I pointed out in my previous article there is a primary reason why this Government is one of the worst achieving in a lifetime.

The Government Snow Job over COVID-19 Testing Continues — The BFD

Is the Government Telling the Truth? — The BFD

 

Something that has bugged so many of us over the last 12 months have been the claims that the Government has only banned firearms that ‘don’t have a legitimate use’.

There’s Something Seriously Wrong with This Government’s Priorities — The BFD

 

The overreach of this Government when it comes to the proposed firearm legislation is really quite disturbing. How can it possibly be justified to even suggest that possession of a single round of ammunition, without even any means of firing said round, be worse than assaulting a child?

The Government’s “nine years of neglect” meme a bad excuse for under performance — Your NZ

An Utterly Ineffective Administration — The BFD | Media

When Ardern scarpered to Paris with the intention of hauling social media sites over the coals, little did they know that New Zealand, under Arden’s watch, only wanted to cut out the middleman.
