His laid back anti-intellectualism allowed NZers with property to not care about those who didn’t. He made it okay to not care about the poor, the homeless, the vulnerable. He made it ok to not have to ask hard or deeper questions. He made it ok to not give a fuck and be as selfish as he was.

Helen Clark and John Key share the blame for the fiasco in Afghanistan

By   /  March 23, 2017  /  John Minto, Most Recent Blogs, Setting The Agenda  /  16 Comments

As the government does its best to squirm its way out of holding any inquiry into the killing of civilians during an SAS-led raid on two villages in Afghanistan its worth looking back at why we were there in the first place – or better still – why we shouldn’t have been there in the first place.
