Can Trump win the Presidency? It depends how many white men really hate women

By   /  April 30, 2016  /  Deconstructing Headlines, Martyn Bradbury, Most Recent Blogs  /  21 Comments

By   /  April 30, 2016  /  Media Watch, Most Recent Blogs  /  29 Comments

Privatised profits and socialised costs: What the government was elected to do.

5 Star Comedy Preview + Comedy Gala reviews

By   /  April 30, 2016  /  Most Recent Blogs, The Liberal Agenda  /  Comments Off on 5 Star Comedy Preview + Comedy Gala reviews

If you can’t stand 5 minutes of them, then locked in for a 1 hour show will be a death wish.

Why a political revolution in 2023 is the only way house prices will fall

By   /  April 29, 2016  /  Deconstructing Headlines, Martyn Bradbury, Most Recent Blogs  /  15 Comments

I remember protesting against the last warship visit when I was ten years old and I’m damned if I’ll simply sit quietly by while National and their corrupt followers cheerlead the American empire back into our waters!
