Beards of Whaleoil

Beards of Whaleoil

An avid WOBH fab and political junky, I am immensely relieved that sensible rational thought has a large and growing voice in New Zealand. I’m a staunch advocate for protecting our sovereignty, culture and freedom of speech, and but for the demands of high-pressure job and the needs of my family, I would gladly actively participate in a new centre-right political party. Maybe the two are not mutually exclusive.

The Free Speech Coalition is labelling the Tertiary Education Union “sad” for not following the leadership of the student unions in expressing no confidence in Massey Vice-Chancellor Professor Jan Thomas for her ban of Dr Don Brash from campus and attempts to defund the student group for inviting a speaker she does not agree with.

“Here we have an instance where the student unions understand the value in academic ideas and debate while the so-called experts’ union could not be further from their mission as educators.”, says Patrick Corish, a member of the Free Speech Coalition and current university student.

“As a student, I must worry that my educators are keeping ideas from my classmates and me because they deem them too dangerous for our consumption. We are adults. We can make up our own minds.”

“Who wants to go to a university of safe spaces and unions banning what they don’t want me to hear? That’s not a university at all.”

Sledge of the day

Act leader David Seymour

ACT leader David Seymour sledged the prime minister beautifully in his press statement yesterday. quote.

I wholeheartedly support Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern’s decision today to cut the size of the Executive. ACT currently has a Smaller Government Bill which will limit the size of the Executive to 20 Ministers.

She’s implementing our policy one minister at a time.

Meka Whaitiri was this afternoon removed as Minister of Customs and her portfolio handed to Minister Kris Faafoi.
