The new TV3 Poll is dangerous for the Government and Simon Bridges…
…our sources tell us that Judith is already starting to move against Bridges.
Judith Devotees point at National gaining once again to 45.1% while Bridges dips as the problem.
National Party voting block made up of rednecks, hardline Chinese NZers, Farmers and property speculators angry that the new Government has slowed their capital gains are solidifying around National, they aren’t dissipating.
What no one is appreciating to date is how deeply polarised NZ culture actually is now. National voters are convinced they were cheated and are openly hateful towards the new Government, the new Government is acting too slowly to bring genuine gains to their voter block and those supporters are drifting away.
There has been a total lack of communications strategy by the new Government – why the Christ they aren’t using Willie Jackson more to lead the attack against National in the media is anyones guess.
Judith is building her coup against Bridges, it will likely occur at the end of this year so she has 18 months leading into the 2020 election.
This new Government didn’t believe they had won on election night (despite being assured they would) and so didn’t have anything ready which means they are still falling over themselves with no clear momentum.
There is a real danger now that this will be a one term Government, if Judith takes power, the plan is to unleash a right wing anger which will be extreme. No one on our side of the political fence has any comprehension of what is building.
It certainly doesn’t help that the corporate mainstream media are wall to wall with right wing pundits who attack and misrepresent everything this Government does. The NZ Herald is less a newspaper and more a right wing Troll Farm while the supposed balance of ‘left’ wing commentators like Simon Wilson endlessly bitches about the truly pressing issues like cycle lanes and Lizzie Marvelly writes her ten thousandth column about how shit men are.
The Right are united, the Left can’t work out if they are Arthur or Martha, and if they did ever decide, they’d be a 6 month hui to debate pronoun use.
Meanwhile MSD and WINZ continues to screw over beneficiaries, mental health is still failing and homelessness and food parcels continue to climb while the next generation are still locked out of home ownership.
Th Left may end up realising that Simon Bridges was a far more moderate voice and far more reasonable Leader than Judith is capable of. While the activist Left are busy screaming at a Pakeha woman pack rape survivor who got a moko for cultural appropriation, Judith is quietly licking her lips.
