David Slack on his own account

One phrase from Don Brash's Orewa barnburner makes a cameo in the speech delivered today by John Key. In 2004 Dr Brash pushed the alarm button on the "dangerous drift towards racial separatism." John Key, being a uniter rather than a divider, has plumped instead for a cause behind which...,

It might be said that a few have even found their conscience... More>>

Forbidden Parties: Boris Johnson’s Law On Illegal Covid Gatherings

It was meant to be time to reflect. The eager arms of a new pandemic were enfolding a society with asphyxiating, lethal effect. Public health authorities advocated various measures: social distancing, limited contact between family and friends, limited mobility. No grand booze-ups. No large parties.
