Golriz Ghahraman, 1.5g of cocaine, a large Polynesian male and 4 cops walk into a bar…

This case matters because it’s about civil rights, not racial profiling. If this had happened to a white NZer it would be equally questionable.

By   /  February 25, 2018  /  Deconstructing Headlines, Martyn Bradbury, Most Recent Blogs  /  1 Comment

Jetstar as a company in NZ has this terrible reputation of being vicious to NZers when it comes to any kind of basic customer service.

By   /  February 25, 2018  /  Martyn Bradbury, Most Recent Blogs, The Liberal Agenda  /  1 Comment

Contestants blaming ‘Married At First Sight’ for a lack of scientific rigour makes a drowning man  clutching at straws look responsible and rational.

Male Labour MPs take Twitter offence at Iranian handshakes (and what’s worse, you allowed Judith Collins to crow)

By   /  February 25, 2018  /  Deconstructing Headlines, Martyn Bradbury, Most Recent Blogs  /  4 Comments

I get that McAnulty and Tirikatene  were trying to be sensitive to Luxton’s perceived embarrassment but being Twitter offended is best left for the Wellington Twitteratti, not actual Members of Parliament.

Mainstream media don’t ask Mark Mitchell about dead civilians, they do ask him about saving puppies

By   /  February 22, 2018  /  Martyn Bradbury, Media Watch, Most Recent Blogs  /  7 Comments

FFS – will one of you journalists do your actual job and directly ask…
‘Did you or any of your mercenary mates kill any civilians while on tour in Iraq’ 
…not ‘did you kill anyone’, that isn’t the question! GET HIM ON RECORD!

It is not good enough when Mark Mitchell refuses to answer if he killed anyone

By   /  February 22, 2018  /  Deconstructing Headlines, Martyn Bradbury, Most Recent Blogs  /  10 Comments

This man is now running for the leadership of the largest political party in NZ, not answering about his time as a mercenary in a war zone where mercenaries were ruthlessly murderous just isn’t an option!

Fairfax threatened NZ they would gut journalism if we didn’t give them their monopoly and they’ve lived up to that threat

By   /  February 21, 2018  /  Martyn Bradbury, Media Watch, Most Recent Blogs  /  2 Comments

Relying on corporate media to be our fourth estate was always going to be problematic when their focus is on profit over democratic obligation, it’s time for the new Government to seek a new public broadcasting relationship if we are to have watch dogs rather than corporate lap dogs.

The continued attempt to crucify Kim Dotcom

By   /  February 21, 2018  /  Deconstructing Headlines, Martyn Bradbury, Most Recent Blogs  /  5 Comments

I’ve said it once, and I’ll say it again, the Public ‘Service’ is this Government’s real enemy and the Left need to get their heads around that rather than suck up to the PSA.

The beauty of the National Party Leadership race

By   /  February 21, 2018  /  Deconstructing Headlines, Martyn Bradbury, Most Recent Blogs  /  7 Comments

We have a situation where 2 out of the 5 current candidates have the ability to be dictators. National should be concerned, NZ should be alarmed.

Are we honestly considering a blood drenched mercenary to lead the largest political party in NZ? Really?

By   /  February 21, 2018  /  Deconstructing Headlines, Martyn Bradbury, Most Recent Blogs  /  8 Comments

In my opinion, Mark Mitchell was a mercenary in a brutal occupation of Iraq based on the lie of weapons of mass destruction. This is ethically questionable and morally repugnant because Bush passed Order 17 in Iraq which allowed private military contractors to be legally exempt from Iraqi law.

So why won’t Kiwis talk about Chinese influence over NZ?

By   /  February 21, 2018  /  Deconstructing Headlines, Martyn Bradbury, Most Recent Blogs  /  34 Comments

Another damning and damaging denouncement of Chinese influence in NZ has been penned by Professor Anne-Marie Brady who recently revealed that she had been threatened and her home broken into (something that Jacinda bewilderingly only learnt about through the media and not our own security agencies) and it once again begs the question, why the fuck are the sleepy hobbits of muddle Nu Zilind not up in arms about all of this?

FACEBOOK WATCH: The unbridled joy of the Mongolian Honorary Consul in New Zealand

By   /  February 21, 2018  /  Martyn Bradbury, Media Watch, Most Recent Blogs  /  2 Comments

One of the few things to truly tickle my fancy this year has been the news that Matthew Hooton, the architect of the Death Star, the moral Shepard of the right, the High Priest of Dirty Politics, has somehow managed to become the Honorary Consul for Mongolia to NZ.

Shouldn’t the news headline read ‘Public Service humiliate Prime Minister and Deputy’

Joyce joining the race after Mark Mitchell is a further sign of the factions scrambling to enable/stop Collins from becoming Leader. The problem is that Joyce is universally despised by Caucus so it may come down to who National MPs hate less
