|Dear NZCPR Reader,
This week, we raise concerns about the democratic vacuum that has been created in New Zealand and the lack of scrutiny over how Jacinda Ardern is using the virus crisis to impose her socialist world view onto our nation, our NZCPR Guest Commentator Frank Newman explains that if the government is genuine about wanting to get New Zealand working it should get rid of the Resource Management Act, and our poll asks whether you believe taxes should be increased to pay for the cost of Jacinda Ardern’s lockdown.
In case you missed it, in last week’s newsletter we questioned whether the Government’s radical attempt to ‘eliminate’ the virus is the right approach – and we also reported on new developments relating to Marine and Coastal Area Act claims here, and our NZCPR Guest Commentator Anthony Willy shared his concerns over the ease with which our freedoms and democracy have been taken away here.
