The Maori Party have had to retract an inflammatory statement.

There are hopes this will be the last investigation into Cycling New Zealand. A long-awaited inquiry into the organisation, which follows the death of Olivia Podmore last year, found its high-performance system prioritises medals over wellbeing. It's also found athletes have a fear of reprisals for raising issues with coaches and management. High P…
 
I’m enjoying the politicians who’ve stepped away from politics long enough to be able to look back in on it with fresh eyes and with wisdom, and then write about it. Paula Bennett has a column in the Herald on Sunday which is always a good read, Steven Joyce writes for the Herald and his pieces always make sense too. Part of it may be that it remin…

I’m not entirely sure what James Shaw has been doing with his time. But whatever it is, it certainly wasn’t spent nailing down a climate plan. What he’s released today is very short on detail. Very short. This is supposed to be a big day for the Government by the way. The PM’s called climate change the nuclear-free moment of our generation. Her gov…
