It seems a remarkable number, so remarkable you wonder how it's possible. Last year, the number of kids who left school with no qualifications went up, again. 12 per cent of those who left school, left with nothing, no NCEA. The year before it was 11 per cent. So not only is it up, the fact it was 11 per cent in 2018, I would have thought, is a cri…

It is not a surprise that we have another case of iwi occupation, this time at Shelly Bay in Wellington. It was widely predicted that members of Whānui Taranaki might occupy the Shelly Bay land if they saw that the occupation at Ihumātao in Auckland had been successful.

It was a cohesive unit that held its ground. These days it’s a s…
