National has claimed that this election is between a centre right government and a far left government.
Since when the hell was wanting to feed hungry children in poor schools ‘far left’? ‘Far left’ sounds like everyone with glasses is going to be forced out into the fields to work at gunpoint. If you want to talk far, let’s look at the right? What’s climate denial, legalised incest, moon landing denials and chemtrails? That’s centrist is it?
30 years of neoliberalism has dragged the centre point so far to the right that anything collective gets decried as socialism. What we are seeing is not far left, it is real left, but 3 decades of free market indoctrination produces pundits and journalists who can’t comprehend the difference.
This election will be between a real left government and a socially conservative free market casually fascist government.
If you are going to put people in boxes, get the bloody box right.
