Charlie Nicholas begins the new series hoping to become a stand-up comedian - but soon resigns himself to a return to punditry

2021 Ferrari Roma First Drive: Sheer Pace, Unflappable Poise

The 2021 Ferrari Roma is an emphatic celebration of the Italian gran turismo, a genre that in the 1950s and ’60s resulted in some of the most beautiful and desirable cars ever built in Maranello. But the Roma is not a carefully crafted homage to the past, a contrived pastiche of retro-whimsy wrapped around 21st century hardware. No, this Ferrari GT is in every way a thoroughly modern interpretation of a classic automotive concept, cleverly engineered and superbly executed.

2021 Ferrari Roma 5

First things first: The Roma is not a replacement for the Portofino, Ferrari’s other V-8-powered front-engine GT. It is an addition to the lineup, and with a price tag of $222,620 it’s by a fraction the least expensive new Ferrari you can buy. In the rarified world of Ferrari-nomics, it’s a stone-cold bargain.

100 percent renewable energy is a red herring

Opinion: A promise to move to fully renewable electricity by 2030 distracts from Labour’s unwillingness to act on the sectors that contribute measurably to our greenhouse gas emissions, like transport and agriculture, Marc Daalder argues

On the face of it, the promise from Labour that it would make New Zealand’s electricity system fully renewable by 2030 seems a bold climate pledge.

In reality, it is little more than a red herring to distract from the woeful lack of policy to reduce emissions in sectors that pollute far more than the energy industry.

The pledge advances an earlier target of a 100 percent renewable system by 2035 and would involve a review of the plan when the Government evaluates its five-year emissions budget in 2025. However, it is targeting only a small slice of the country’s emissions profile, while
