Waatea News Column: Waitangi Breakfast is great Jacinda, what’s for lunch and dinner?

No one could expect Jacinda Ardern to be able to fix 9 years of grotesque public service underfunding in just a year. The damage to the wider society National’s short sighted social policies hit Māori harder than most and Jacinda promised a hope that pain would not only pass but reverse trend.

National Party MP promotes woeful fake news on methane

By Donna Awatere Huata

“Facebook is a breeding ground for climate denial and to have a a Politician give such naked ignorance oxygen by reposting fake news is dangerous. If we are serious about combating climate change, pretending it isn’t real and caused by human pollution is counter productive in the extreme”.

Time to Panic National

By Gerard Otto

Emergency workers rushed to the scene of the tragedy and Mike Hosking was bundled up onto the stage before the frightened mob, of elite, very wealthy, ideologically fixated National supporters.

The crowd of privileged nation wreckers, dribbled with fear about the latest poll and the smell of shit running down their legs into their blue socks was rife.

We need a Radical Green Egalitarianism to be the economic, cultural and political response to neoliberalism

Climate Denial is no longer about the science, it’s a culture debate now.  It stopped being about science when the oil companies realised in the 1990s they were to blame and went about funding quack science to play the same game big tobacco used, pretend there is a question over the science to confuse the public.

By   1 day ago

Just Like “Rogernomics”, A Capital Gains Tax Would Traumatize The New Zealand Economy

By   1 day ago

LATER THIS WEEK, the recommendations of the Tax Working Group will become public. It is highly likely that a Capital Gains Tax (CGT) of some description will be near the top of the Working Group’s “To Do” list. How should Labour handle this extremely hot potato? The tax which all the experts tell us we have to have has much to recommend it theoretically, but, in the bluntest of practical political terms, it could very easily destroy this government.

Kashmir Convoy Attack – Who Else Is Responsible

By   3 days ago

So this is a curious thing. The recent attack in Kashmir was carried out by Jaish-e-Mohammed, headed by a figure by the name of Masood Azhar. Understandably, India sought UN assistance in curtailing this ongoing threat; a move which the People’s Republic of China has (once again) blocked. Just as it has consistently done for more than ten years now.

By   1 day ago

As a natural born male, heterosexual Marxist who supports SpeakUp4WomenNZ I am no doubt called a TERF (Trans Exclusive Radical Feminist) lover. TERF is the slur used by transactivists who promote trans-ideology to justify the right of transgender people to be legally recognised as biological men or women (Sex Self-ID), and who characterise those who are critical of transgender people’s right to change their birth sex as transphobic.
