Dear NZers – when Key was in power you didn’t care about 5 Eyes and allowed him to get away with mass surveillance – how do you feel about Trump having that power now?

By   /  February 2, 2017  /  Deconstructing Headlines, Martyn Bradbury, Most Recent Blogs  /  4 Comments

Now our anti-intellectual messiah has gone, are New Zealanders really that bewilderingly dense to allow Trump to have this level of power over our economic, cultural and political sovereignty?
