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.

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  /  8 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.

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  /  11 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!

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.

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  /  38 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?

Auckland Council step up because white people won’t listen to brown people

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

By   /  February 20, 2018  /  Deconstructing Headlines, Martyn Bradbury, Most Recent Blogs  /  13 Comments

When they do this to poor people, the Public Service Sadists scream welfare fraud, when they do it to the Prime Minister and Deputy, it’s just humiliation they dish out.

The man who lied about an $11.7b hole (while creating a $20b hole) wants to lead the National Party

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

Why proposed synthetic cannabis law change, meth tests & roadside drug tests highlight how juvenile NZ political culture really is

By   /  February 20, 2018  /  Deconstructing Headlines, Martyn Bradbury, Most Recent Blogs  /  5 Comments

Time and time and time again we over react with panic, fear and anger at drug use rather than attempt reasonable adult debate and the irony is we do all this with a straight face as the country drowns in booze – a drug far, far, far more lethal than meth, cannabis and synthetics combined.
