George MacDonald is mainly known for his fantasy works and fairy tales such as At the Back of the North Wind and The Princess and the Goblin. However, during his life he was more famous for many more realistic novels. . . among them the somewhat autobiographical Ranald Bannerman’s Boyhood. This story of a young motherless boy growing up with his brothers in a Scottish manse is full of delightful characters. There is Kirsty, an enchanting Highland storyteller, Turkey, the intrepid cowherd, th ...

They plan a grand christening ceremony for the baby, but as destiny would have it, they forget to invite the nastiest lady in the kingdom, who also happens to be the king's sister, the evil Princess Makemnoit. Now if all that seems distinctly familiar to you, it was meant to! Using the Sleeping Beauty/Briar Rose fairytale as a starting point, Scottish ...
 
First appearing in Harper’s Young People as a serial, the piece focuses on the extraordinary tale of a young boy and a girl who have been brought up in a secluded and controlled environment by a wicked witch, incognizant of the world outside of their custom tailored settings. Enriched with magic, fantasy, romance, and allegory, The Day Boy and the Night Girl is a great instance of MacDonald’s excellent use of metaphors to express a deeper meaning to a seemingly simple fairy tale. The novel b ...

The Christchurch City Council has a real dilemma on its hands. It decided once-and-for-all last month to move its composting plant out of the suburb, of Bromley. This is the plant where our food scraps, grass clippings, hedge clippings, all of the green bin stuff – that’s where it goes (if you live in Christchurch). And, as we know, it smells to hi…

The leader of the National Party has come out against lowering the voting age to 16. Justice Minister Kris Faafoi's announced a review of the electoral law that will include discussing the voting age. The independent panel will also assess other election rules - with changes planned before next year's election. Christopher Luxon told John MacDonald…
 
Sometimes I think we do too many trials in this country and we just need to get stuck in more and get on with stuff. The latest example is the trial Waka Kotahi is running in Auckland, where it’s using safety cameras to find out how much of a problem there is with drivers using mobile phones while they drive. It also wants to get an idea of how man…
 
Imagine this: you’re really keen to move to another country. Not just visit – you want to go and live there. In fact, you’re so keen – you’ll do anything to make it happen. So, you think to yourself, “mmmm, what would pretty much guarantee me getting in and being allowed to stay?” So, you ask around and you go online and you find out that if you’re…
 
Labour has turned its back on its people and the days of the Chardonnay Socialists are well and truly back. When I say “its” people, I’m talking about the people I’ve always thought could rely the most on the Labour Party to be on their side. Those on benefits, superannuitants, the sick, and those who might’ve been called working class back in the …
 
John MacDonald spoke to Labour's Megan Woods and National's Gerry Brownlee in the aftermath of yesterday's budget announcement. MacDonald questioned the value of spending $327 million on the RNZ and TVNZ merger, when there are so many sick New Zealanders pleading for more money to be allocated for life-saving and life-increasing medications to be f…
 
As with every Budget Day, everyone hopes the Finance Minister is going to throw something their way. And every Budget Day there are the so-called winners and the so-called losers. But the one constant – every Budget Day – is the Government (whether it’s Labour, National or whoever) doing the proverbial high-fives and looking very pleased with itsel…
 
The Christchurch City Council opened a can of worms yesterday. It’s decided – 199 days after the fire at the wastewater plant in Bromley – that some residents are going to get some sort of compensation. It hasn’t had final sign-off, but that’s expected to happen tomorrow week. I don’t think anyone is going to complain about the fact that the Counci…

If you haven’t read the Government’s Emissions Reduction Plan, don’t panic. Because I’ve done a summary for you: it’s a dog’s breakfast. It’s the first of its kind here in New Zealand. The purpose of it is to set out the targets that need to be achieved for us to have net zero greenhouse gas emissions by 2050. Which doesn’t mean no emissions at all…
 
Residents affected by the stench from Christchurch's fire-damaged wastewater plant may get their healthcare and laundry paid for by the council. Tensions ran high and Christchurch City Council workers were booed at a public meeting on Friday over the area's ongoing Bromley stench. Councillor Anne Galloway said proposals around how to provide relief…
 
Is the long-term damage that can be caused by a win-at-all-cost approach to sport really worth it? This is the question that a lot of us will be asking today with the release of the findings from a review into high-performance sports by Cycling New Zealand. It’s the review that came about after cyclist Olivia Podmore – whose parents both live here …
 
I’ve got that old saying about the left hand not knowing what the right hand is doing in my head today. And it’s why I think we need to seriously consider creating a Super City by merging the Christchurch, Selwyn and Waimakariri councils. I’ve thought this for some time and I’m thinking about it again today for a couple of reasons. The first, is th…
 
My heart sank last night. It sank when I saw a headline saying the Christchurch City Council is going to consult residents before it puts any extra money into the new stadium – Te Kaha. As we heard earlier this week, material costs have gone through the roof thanks to global supply chain issues and it’s now looking like the Council is going to have…

There is no place in New Zealand for an outfit like Gloriavale. It cannot be allowed to continue operating. And it is absolutely shameful that we have pretty much turned a blind eye to what’s been going on there for so long. Absolutely shameful. It’s in the news again today because of the Employment Court ruling that three former members were techn…

The budget for the new Christchurch stadium – Te Kaha – has blown out again, by another $50 million. And it’s being reported that city councillors are going to have to decide soon whether to increase the budget, go back to the drawing board or press pause on the project. Memo to Council: ‘Please don’t go back to the drawing board. Please don’t pres…
 
Yesterday, the Government announced that it’s going to do what governments do best – putting ambulances at the bottom of cliffs. The latest one is a $600 million ambulance at the bottom of the crime cliff. More money for more police officers. More money to crack down on gangs. More money to keep an eye on gun ownership. Governments do this because …

If you started the week not knowing the name Simon Henry, you probably know it now. He’s the rich-lister who is the founder and chief executive of chemicals company DGL Group who is under fire - quite rightfully, might I add - for saying some appalling things about Nadia Lim, whose name I’m guessing you did know at the start of the week.

Today on Newstalk ZB Canterbury Mornings, John MacDonald was joined by National's Gerry Brownlee and Labour's Megan Woods regarding the big topics of the week. MacDonald asked if Speaker Trevor Mallard should be removed from his role, they covered Government funding of Three Waters following last Friday's announcement and if tax cuts are on the age…
 
The Christchurch City Council seems to be outdoing itself on an almost daily basis at the moment. And today, it’s flying the flag on behalf of the over thinkers and the paranoid. Because it has decided that it isn’t going to install a new flagpole at the civic centre in Sumner because it's worried the locals might offend China by flying insensitive…
 
Has anyone checked whether Trevor Mallard has been wearing any blue or red bandanas recently? In case you don’t know, blue is Black Power and red is the Mongrel Mob. Or, if you’re in America, blue is the Crips and red is the Bloods. The reason I ask this is that the Police are apparently planning some sort of crackdown on gangs – and one of the thi…
 
It’s often said that marketing plays on people’s fears. You know what I’m talking about - things like those ads on TV that talk about the house being full of bacteria we can’t see and if we really want to be good parents and keep our family safe we should be spraying this or spraying that on every surface every five minutes. Create the fear and pre…

No one can tell me that the climate isn’t changing. Yesterday, it was 1 May and it was around 23 degrees in Christchurch. Which is brilliant for getting stuff done and getting out and about. But it’s also another tiny little piece of evidence that the Earth is definitely getting warmer. So, no one can tell me that climate change is fake news. And n…
 
Today on Newstalk ZB Canterbury Mornings, John MacDonald was joined by Christchurch Mayor Lianne Dalziel. He asked the Mayor about today's sea-level rise reports, and why Council would still give permits to build on land that could be at risk in years to come. They also discussed the fallout from the Bromley compost and wastewater plants, and how C…

How would you feel about everything in your green organics bin and all your garden waste going into landfill for the next five years, instead of it being used to make compost like it is now? So all your food scraps, all your grass clippings, all your hedge clippings - all of it - just being chucked in landfill for the next five years. This is the c…

In the past five months, three friends of ours - all in their early 50s - have died of cancer. One of them died just 15 months after diagnosis, leaving behind a husband and two boys. Another - whose funeral I was at last week - died five years after being told she had ovarian cancer. The third fought her cancer for 15 years. And when I say fought, …

We are looking forward to the ski season big time at our place. But, I tell you what, there is one thing about the ski season that I don’t like - and that’s driving through some of those intersections on the way to Mt Hutt. I know it’s slightly quicker turning off State Highway 73 before you get to Darfield - but I don’t. I go all the way to Darfie…

I’ve been thinking about our MPs and whether they have any idea what life is like at the moment for so many people in this country. I think they are way out of touch. Let’s start with the 6.9 percent inflation rate and all the huffing and puffing we’ve had from MPs. Now there’s a line that gets trotted out now and then which says: People don’t care…
 
Gerry Brownlee and Tracey McLellan were asked if MPs really have a grasp of the realities New Zealanders face in today's world on the back of record CPI numbers.

When I walked out the door just after six this morning, it was beautiful. Still and warm – about 17 degrees I think it was here in Christchurch. It was beautiful – for a few seconds anyway – and then I realised our mate from Bromley had turned up again. You know, the one who works their way inside your house – all over town it seems some days. But …
 
Annual inflation has hit 6.9 per cent for the year to March 31, the largest movement since a 7.6 per cent annual increase in the year to the June 1990 quarter, StatsNZ said today.

The big news in Canterbury today is that we have asbestos leeching into our drinking water. We’re being told the health impact is uncertain but, I tell you what, it’s enough to make me think the Government’s Three Waters reforms might not be such a bad thing after all. I know the conspiracy theorists are already smelling a rat, and thinking that th…
