As you will have heard by now, the Reserve Bank increased the official cash rate by 50 basis points to 2 percent. This delivered what many commentators saw as a hawkish monetary policy statement, pointing to much higher rates ahead as it chases down inflation.
The Monetary Policy Committee says it sees the cash rate rising to at least 3.25 percent this year and that it was resolute in its commitment to ensure consumer price inflatio...

Now historically, communities have relied on their particular version of God to keep their people in check and if God is always watching, then the theory is that you should be on your best behaviour and do no wrong.
Of course, people are flawed and imperfect. Inevitably, we will do wrong, but given that God is always watching, their sins will be exposed and they will be punished.
In this increasingly secular century and society, 48 p...

Anthony Albanese will be sworn in as Australian Prime Minister today, ending conservative rule in Australia that lasted nearly a decade. 
Counting from the election is yet to confirm whether he has enough seats to establish a majority government. 
As things stand, Labor's one seat short -- and needs 76 to form a majority government. 
Questions have been asked as to what an Anthony Albanese election means for New Zealand.

I don't mind telling you that prior to yesterday's budget, I was kind of over it already.
The question is whether this budget announcement yesterday was a win for the Government? Was it that enough to turn the tide in the polls?
For most of us though, the immediate question is what's the Government going to do for us, and our focus on the cost of living and the constant headlines around inflation?
The Government answer to ...

Why is it, and how is it, that you can get away with murder in this country?
You'll have heard in our news that a charge has been dropped against a family member who was accused of trying to obstruct justice. They were one of the people in a home in Flatbush Road, who were there when 14 month old Sofia Taueki-Jackson was murdered.
She suffered a catastrophic and unsurvivable head injury late on Saturday, May 23, 2020. It was her ...

A warning has come for caution before any change to the law giving a right to silence.
Police believe 14-month-old Sofia Taueki-Jackson was killed at her mother's home in Clover Park two years ago, after a significant head injury.
NZME’s newsroom can reveal a charge has been dropped against a family member accused of obstructing justice by refusing to assist the investigation.
AUT law professor Kris Gledhill told Kerre Woodham we ...

We can take it as a given, can we not, that dental health is part of your overall health and well-being. 
Besides the pain of rotten or broken teeth, you're also predisposed to a range of other health ailments. Poor oral health can impair your general health and well-being by creating or exacerbating health conditions such as heart and lung disease, and stroke.
There's a direct correlation.
Also, your dental health can exacerb...

A call for the Government to put more money towards dental care in tomorrow's Budget.
The Dental Association is calling for raft of changes, starting with increasing grants for access to urgent dental care.
President Kate Ayers told Kerre Woodham despite their best efforts, many people develop dental issues they simply can't afford to fix.
“It’s just not fair that they need to continue on with it because they can’t afford to g...

The Government's offering up new transport options, rather than kicking people out of their cars.
Included in their Emissions Reduction Plan is more than half a billion dollars towards pushing electric and hybrid vehicles.
The money will help lower and middle income households scrap their fossil-fuel burning cars for a climate-friendly alternative.
A pilot of the scheme will involve up to 2500 vehicles and begin next year.

I have to say looking at the Herald this morning, you wonder whether the Government, whether the media, whether I, have a take on what people are really concerned about because I came back and I'm reading the paper and there's a full-page report in the Herald on what we can expect from the Government and its master plan to cut emissions when the Budget’s released.
The headline in Stuff is 'Emissions plan could herald the...

Finance Minister Grant Robertson delivers his fifth Budget on Thursday, with an emphasis on health and climate change.
However, there are doubts this week's Budget will address New Zealand's cost of living crisis.
In an opinion piece in the NZH, National's finance spokesperson Nicola Willis says this is not the time to be adding more unnecessary costs or embarking on big bureaucracy-building ventures.
Nicola Willis joined ...

The Piopio home invasion case.
I'll be honest, my initial reaction to the not-guilty verdict was that I struggled to contain my Glee. But that was because when the case first broke and I looked at the facts and I predicted,  two or three weeks ago, that no jury was ever going to convict the father and son of the charges of wounding with intent to cause grievous bodily harm.
The question is, did the jury, in finding Bill Burr seni...

The Employment court has ruled ex-Gloriavale members were employees from six years old, not volunteers.
Hosea and Levi Courage, and Daniel Pilgrim, have now left the religious community, but sought a declaration on their status after leaving school and working at the commune and its businesses.
The Employment court found the work can't be described as chores or education, because of the commercial nature.
The commune claimed work ...

I moved to the North Shore of Auckland in November of last year. After years and years of living in the central city it was a big move to go across the bridge. I fell completely and utterly in love with the North Shore lifestyle. It's completely different to being in the city.
The one big negative that people warned me about was Onewa Road.
That's the main road linking many different suburbs on the shore to the motorway, yet ...

The Government is expected to announce next week that a congestion charge is on the cards for Auckland's CBD in 2025.
A Helen Clark Foundation report has found such a charge could cut congestion by 12 percent, but researchers say the process needs to be brought in fairly.
The Infrastructure Commission released its first long-term strategy at the start of the month. They believe we need to ease congestion in our cities and make us...

Well, you can't say all those millions spent on PR consultants and market researchers and communications advisors and spin doctors, you cannot say all those millions of dollars have been wasted, can you?
