By   /  March 24, 2017  /  Deconstructing Headlines, Martyn Bradbury, Most Recent Blogs  /  No Comments

John Key – you have to tell NZ if you committed a war crime

By   /  March 21, 2017  /  Deconstructing Headlines, Martyn Bradbury, Most Recent Blogs  /  94 Comments

Jesus wept this disgusts and angers me so deeply – if you send troops to a foreign land you are fucking responsible for what they do! Brothers & sisters, we fund the NZ SAS – when they pull a trigger, we help pay for that trigger – Key has made us all killers here. The Prime Minister has blood on his hands and we must demand some answers before he steps down.

…if we want to be real about the well being of chickens when it comes to eggs we would first stop deluding ourselves that the current scheme is anything other than a scam, demand far more stringent codes of welfare and accept that the cost will rise.

TV REVIEW: The Nation wastes another opportunity – The Generation Debate

By   /  March 19, 2017  /  Martyn Bradbury, Media Watch, Most Recent Blogs  /  2 Comments

We are never allowed to examine the chains of hegemony in this country, we are only ever permitted to complain about how our individual chain hurts me personally and how your chain doesn’t cut in as deeply as my chain does.

It’s bread and fucking circuses without the bread or the fucking circus.
