NO COUNTRY FOR ELITE/SEXIST/RACIST WHITE MEN

National MP, Paul Goldsmith, is an inadequate representive for our parliament and our people.  I believe he should apologise or resign - ideally both. Paul is a descendant of Charles George Goldsmith, a migrant from Liverpool who settled in the East cape area early in New Zealand's colonial history. Charles Goldsmith had four wives—two Māori (Ngāti Porou), and two pākehā—fathering 16 children. However Goldsmith has clarified that he is not himself of Māori descent, in fact, despite his Auckland

Safer streets with safer lighting

The above picture is Allen Bell Bridge at 6.15am. One of many bridges with insufficient lighting & unsafe footpaths due to lack of lighting which is hazardous. We as a community should be able to walk our streets safely, day and night without fear! Township streets should not be restricted because of the lack of street lighting. Recently I was approached and stalked by a person in a dark area which left me shaken and afraid. I’ve reported the incident to the police and have brought this upon

Support a vote of no confidence in the petition for a vote of no confidence in Dunedin Councillors and the Mayor

Unfortunately many people do not understand the process of democracy and despite the recent democratically conducted local council elections, because they did not get the mayor they wanted they somehow believe the democratic process was not followed. Some of these people are unable to deal with the fact that there are other people out there that have a different opinion to them, so everytime a decision does not go in their favour they spend a lot of time and effort on social media moaning about

Bring Mock Exams and Study Leave Back

 The decision to cancel mock examinations and study leave at Westlake Girls High School was one made without the input of the student body- the people that this decision effects the most. The value of practice examinations and study leave is monumentally more than that of only two more weeks of teaching time. This decision should be altered if the student body wishes it so. In this current climate, where there is so much uncertainty having our practice examinations is vital. Considering that man

Stop the Greytown Trust Lands Trust from holding the Greytown Community to Ransom

The GTLT was established in 1871 with unsold sections from the early development of Greytown. Its purpose, set out in a parliamentary act, is to primarily assist education, but including libraries, physical welfare, other cultural purposes, and maintaining and promoting in the district the general well-being of the public. 150 years ago there was a real need for education support but now much of this is provided by central government.  The GTLT directors are holding our community to ransom by th
