Dr. Frank Shizenhausen

15350-frankHard-hitting conservative columnist Dr. Frank Shizenhausen takes no prisoners in his blistering attacks on political correctness.

The no-nonsense authoritarian libertarian is as feared by his political opponents as he is by women in general.

He has a fearsome reputation for getting to the truth and then quickly forgetting it, and is a popular author, celebrity speaker, marriage celebrant, and material witness.

Dr. Shizenhausen is highly educated, and can hold his own in any academic discussion. He studied at the prestigious University of Slough, where he graduated in Zoology with honours, and he completed his masters and doctorate in Resource Management and Town Planning at Ulan Bator Tech.

In 1993 he founded the Centre for Research and Policy (CRAP), a policy think-tank that has influenced conservative movements in all corners of the Wairarapa region.

He was keynote speaker in 2009’s ARSE (Against Reason, Science and the Enlightenment) Annual Conference, and was third Runner Up in the Pams Baking Powder Columnist of the Year Award, 2008.

He is also the best-selling author of a number of books, including Common Cents: how thinking ruined the economy, and Why ever did we stop burning witches?
