The right wing troll farm that is the NZ mainstream corporate media have replaced meth hysteria with Winston hysteria.
Apparently Winston becoming the caretaker PM for 6 weeks is leading to birth defects in livestock, spoiled milk and random eclipses.
What the pundits can’t explain is what exactly Winston is going to do in 6 weeks which will end Western Civilisation as we know it.
The most wonderful irony in the world would be the economic crash hitting while the great critic of free market neoliberalism is sitting on the throne.
That’s almost worth wishing for.
Winston being the PM won’t change a thing other than remind us all why we love Uncle Winston.
Shane attacking Fonterra is calculated, not evidence of a rogue unit.
NZ First nixing the 3 strikes legislation but supporting the reform was just as calculated.
And Winston taking public servants to court is a fierce reminder that NZ First sees much of the public service as part of the neoliberal problem.
Those 3 examples have all been held up by mainstream media pundits as some evidence of a huge disruption about to envelope Parliament once Jacinda goes into labour (despite her already being in Labour – oh the lols).
Winston will be Winston, and if the economy crashes on his watch, we may all thank our stars he’s on deck.
