What we are witnessing is one of the great con jobs of recent political times.
The mainstream media’s deafening scream is that National won the election, that as the Party with the largest vote they some how should form the next Government as a moral right.
Fuck off with your filthy mainstream media lies and naked attempt to manipulate the country into another term of this despicable Government.
There is NO real economic growth…
Over the five years, we’ve had no productivity growth at all, and Australia has managed quite reasonable growth. And over the last five years, using the average measure for New Zealand doesn’t mask anything: from the second quarter of 2012 to the second quarter of 2017, the strongest of the nine series recorded productivity growth of 0.8 per cent (that is, in total over five years) and on the weakest, the level of productivity fell by 0.6 per cent (in total over five years). Best guess: zero
The KidsRights Index 2017 is published. NZ has scored abysmally and is ranked 158th of the 165 countries in the index making NZ one of the worst places in the world to be a child.
The KidsRights Index is the annual global index published by the KidsRights Foundation which ranks how countries adhere to and are equipped to improve children’s rights.
The index covers five domains with 23 total indicators. The 5 domains are the Right to Life, the Right to Health, the Right to Education, the Right to Protection and an Enabling Environment for Child Rights. And NZ has fallen from 45th to 158th in a year.
People at breaking point before the election are still at breaking point now. They need change. People in poverty need immediate action now, they cant wait for select committee process that might do something in 18months.
It’s about time the leading lights of the left actually stood up and said something rather than allow the right wing and their symbiotic media parasites trumpet a win for National. If enough leading lights of the left could find their way to getting off their arses and adding their voice maybe the faux shockwaves of manufactured outrage about to erupt when Labour-NZ First-Green gov gets announced won’t spook the country so much.
I refuse to watch the corporate mainstream media and their vested interests manipulate the election result the way they manipulated the election campaign.
