Furthermore if Mr O'Connor is such a champion of free speech then why on earth did he...


#1 Say nothing about the most important groundswell example of free-speech ever exercised in NZ's history... THE WELLINGTON VIGIL. #2 Not bother to do the most basic thing and walk a few meters to actually meet with groundswell members... too acknowledge their existence, to mingle amongst them and to hear some of their absolutely tragic individual stories. Sorry, but all I see is just another gutless incumBENT opposition MP, realising that he backed the wrong horse and is now endeavouring to reposition... I repeat... way too little and far too late. Also the sole critique of Labour corporate sponsored rollout from the combined opposition…

whilst you are on point regarding Simon's prior position or lack of, its better late than never.....it was certainly appalling that not one ventured out to speak at the vigil but I do believe that 120 were muzzled by Jabcinda in a truly undemocratic way that we as kiwis have never seen before....not an excuse and it should not have stopped 'someone' taking a stand for free speech and unwarranted, illegal mandates - this should never be forgotten.......pure socialism is alive and well under this autocratic regime.......opposition barely exists in a world where the mandate is for 'The New World Order' which most of the politicians are on board with.....

DEMOCRACY IS DEAD my friend, we have to embrace the…

Well Simon a angry speech-angry people don't make good leaders either.

About your comment on colonial concept.have you got something against colonialism?

When the colonial settlers came to this country they set about building schools and churches in all settlements and built railways so the country could function.

Earlier you mentioned "being called Catholic what terrible sin that would be",The Pope is Catholic,that remains to be seen in the near future.

There is absolutely no denying it... this rooster certainly has the gift of the gab!

But goodness me what a tangled mess my head becomes when I try to interpret just exactly what he actually stands for.

Perhaps no surprises there... after all, he is Simon Bridges' brother-in-law.

Also, did any of us hear any loud opposition from him over the killer-clot-shot rollout. I certainly didn't.

Also how on earth do we interpret the fact that he is the Chair of Monarchy New Zealand, the organisation that literally worships the British Monarchy, but which is in essence just another arm of Mr Global whose current main agenda is worldwide genocide of the masses.

Does he have a single clue that…

Simon would appear to be the Leader with a voice that the National Party is desperately looking for - every word the truth, and the speaker of the house, doing his job properly, allowed him to have his say - if duck man was there Simon would have been escorted from the chamber....


Omg Simon O'Connor has a backbone, a man with a clear vision and not afraid to tell it how it is. We have been waiting for this moment, long may he continue to expose the left for the weak, pathetic, lying bunch of socialist autocrats that they are.

Luxon should be ashamed by his inability to be an opposition leader in the true sense and if he…

I lamented the untimely departure of Simon Bridges, in that he could be guaranteed to speak his mind and have a definite opinion....one of the few with balls in the opposition!

Now emergeth Simon O'Connor, Hallelujah!....yet another voice in the wilderness.

Gives me hope for the future of the party.

Mr. Luxon...TAKE NOTE!

Yes, what a disastrous series of unacceptable National leaders. Including Simon Bridges, based on his lacklustre performance when chairing the Covid committee. Completely overshadowed by David Seymour's searching line of questions. Rolling over rather than pressing those home.
