The Bore of Babylon, David Farrar, he of the hooven foot, has hijacked the word Union in a desperate scramble to generate a fake lobby group for the Government to help distract from the hideous economic agenda of National.
Farrar must be feeling the heat of his decision to side with Hooton against the Government over the Chorus deal and will be wanting this astroturf group to help cement his polling contract with the National Party.
The real purpose of this ‘Taxpayer Union’ is to do the following…
…this is about distraction with a myopic view to critique Union records so that NZers don’t see that this Governments tax cuts for the rich and asset sale programs are here to empower the top 1%.
Kiwiblog setting up a ‘Taxpayer’s Union’ is like Apartheid South Africa setting up a Human Rights Commission and any journalist who attempts to quote this ‘Taxpayer’s Union’ should be bombarded with tweets demanding they refer to it as ‘John Key’s Astroturf Collective’.
Farrar is a hard right spin dr who masquerades his ideology with lite right messaging, a ‘Taxpayer’s Union’ is just another attempt to pollute the dialogue stream with more hard right wing selfishness dressed up in moralistic personal responsibility pretensions. Think of it as a really weak and milky Tea Party think tank.
It should be shown the contempt it deserves.
