Thought For The Week 1st October

Thought For The Week 24 September

Phew! The election is over – time for the negotiations to begin to form a government.

Thought For The Week 27 August

Whatever your political persuasion is there can be little doubt that this election season suddenly became very interesting with the resignation of various leaders. National looked like they were sleep walking into this election but have been jolted awake by the “Jacinda effect”; the Greens  mis-calculated the effect their co-leader’s discloser of benefit and election […]
