OPINION: Mike Hosking performs a valuable public role showing what racism looks like: pale-skinned, privileged, and smug.
OPINION: The case of Moko Rangitoheriri has rightly led to street protests and harsh argument about the treatment of his killers. The torture and death of the three-year-old is another unspeakable addition to our shameful record of child abuse. If we didn't express rage and anguish about this we would be morally lost.
OPINION: Those who signed the petition against broadcaster Mike Hosking should be careful what they wish for. How would they feel if angry Right-wing viewers had mounted a petition against the Left-wing broadcaster John Campbell and got him sacked?
OPINION: Make no mistake about it, Brexit is global news.
OPINION: The shockwaves from Brexit will shake the world for a long time to come. Few of the effects will be good.
OPINION: It's a piece of Wellington history, a tourist trap, and a useful public transport link to boot.
OPINION: Ombudsman Ron Paterson has put a full stop on a long and ugly saga: the witch-hunt for leakers at MFAT.
OPINION: New Zealand soldiers are stuck in Iraq while the Government's story keeps changing. John Key's decision to extend the military mission there for another 18 months is clearly a broken promise, and he will have to wear it.
OPINION: The Brexit result will be felt far and wide - even here in New Zealand.
OPINION: It would be an incredibly stupid politician who stopped the funding for Wellington's cable car.
OPINION: We're making billions from tourists flooding into NZ, but we should sting them for a bit more.
OPINION: Something weird is going on. New Zealanders are talking about defence.
