After two months of lockdown and more than 37,000 coronavirus deaths, Britain on Wednesday finally rolled out a countrywide “test and trace” program -- an enormous undertaking meant to help isolate the virus and return the country to some sense of normality.

A new Otago University study of more than 2500 New Zealanders, shows 73 percent were equally or more productive working from home.

National's campaign chair says word of an intelligence unit is being misused. Someone within the caucus leaked details of the unit to Mediaworks, concerned it would be used for dirty politics. Gerry Brownlee says he told the party's MPs it was about relying on different innovations to get party messaging out. He told Mike Hosking it's offensive to …
 
It's funny to be saying this in a public forum, but sometimes it's true, Winston's right about Level 1. And maybe we're ready to move even further, you know, back to normal with the exception of the border. Under Level 1, as we understand it, we'd still be dousing ourselves in sanitiser all day, but hospitality businesses would at least have a chan…
 
The question is not whether Winston Peters is correct, because he indisputably is. The question is, what is he going to do about it? His revelation on this show yesterday now tells us this government is not the one holding us back from moving to level one, getting doors open to a point where actual trading can be done, livings be made, and jobs sav…

Dominic Cummings helped Boris Johnson win power by pitting the people against the elite.

The Super debate is being seen as irrelevant when it comes to Covid-19. National Party leader Todd Muller says he'll raise the retirement age to 67 by 2040 if he becomes Prime Minister.

Winston Peters has launched a scathing criticism of his own government's decision to stay on Alert Level Two. Jacinda Ardern says it could be another month before we move to Alert Level One.

Simon Bridges must be licking his chops. If the Nats new team thought a new leadership would mean a cake walk to September, they’re sadly mistaken. Not only are they up against Jacinda, they’re up against a relentlessly unforgiving media who're obsessed with the current government. The Nats don’t just have to cut through the government, they have t…
 
I despair. Todd Muller's first full day out including the Parliament was little short of a disaster. He took the MAGA hat story and gave it life. Massive, massive mistake. It wasn't a story, it was an agenda driven rant by Jacinda Ardern by a loving lefty obsessed, tire-kicking, and hand wringers who fail to do their job as journalists. That bit wa…
