Paddy Gower Watch: 2.2m kiwi workers won’t get 2 Big Mac combos worth of tax cuts each week – Western Civilisation to end

By   /   July 12, 2017  /   17 Comments

Here is Paddy Gower being Paddy Gower…

…that’s right folks, because 2.2m kiwi workers won’t get 2 Big Mac combos worth of tax cuts each week – Western Civilisation is about to end.

Clint Smith from Labour was very quick to shoot this lie down..

…and it turns out Paddy was just taking National Party propaganda at face value…

…that’s some quality journalism there from Paddy.

    Too much information for Paddy to absorb all at once.
    Give the man a break!
    He’s a National apologist mouthpiece, can’t expect his thought processes to work that quickly!

      A break? A break? There’s something like a break, a fire break there already. It’s the space between his brain and reality.

    Yep the brighter future anticipation light has gone out now for sure.

    Here’s Paddy up to his usual kneejerk bullshit. To think that righties think he is a leftie is risible (part of the reason many righties think the media is biased to the left I guess).

  4. LOSTRELIC says:

    The entire topic of tax cuts is a propaganda piece for wealthy right wing voters to clap or jeer. To the poor it is as abstract as being preached to about the “benefits of the ‘free market'” – means literally nothing.

    To save us, we only have to look to the gospel of Supply Side Jesus. Enjoy!

    Yes and on ‘the panel’on the A.M Show this morning there was saying that Labour’s plan was only .6 of a billion dollars cheaper than Nationals so there wasn’t a lot in it.
    Oh really? …,can you imagine the outcry if the figures were the other way around and Labour’s policy was more expensive….these guys just talk any old rubbish that comes into their head…he had the sucked lemon face on when Verity Johnson said that she actually liked Labour’s idea…a woman with a bit if substance and not afraid to speak out…

    There is absolutely no balance in MSM and no real investigative journalism, the reason so many get their news elsewhere. Paddy has always been an apologist for the Nats!

    Patrick Gower: infotainment minus the information and the entertainment.

  10. Andrea says:

    Labour’s offer is simply a continuation of corporate welfare and, just as they did last time, offers tremendously little for single people.

    As usual, nothing much to address the grim fact that the basic bills – rents/rates, power, water, food, transport and health care’ – keep rising at rates far beyond the average increases in incomes. Year on year – while many people haven’t had enough income improvement to even stand still.

    Stop flinging money, Labour. Deal with the structural mess of your own, and National’s making. Neither party should be topping up rents or family incomes. Neither should any of you be ignoring the non-family people who also need homes and heating and food.

    It looks such an ‘easy answer’. But you’re in a hole and digging a dead end. I wish you knew enough to stop.

    PS No. We don’t need any more stop-gap measures. We need to turn the heat up and keep it on until they modernise this country and its systems of services beyond barely enough. Until our enterprises can pay both their way and their people at a fair rate.

  11. Afewknowthetruth says:

    Yes, western civilization IS about to end. But not just yet. It will take until around 2020 for the energy predicament to reach a critical phase, and will probably take until around 2025 for the environmental predicament to reach a critical phase.

    Whether the corrupt state of the political system will be enough to bring it all down before 2020 is still debatable.

    And anything Paddy Gower says is entirely irrelevant and therefore not worth noting, of course.
