Why I fear Kavanaugh wretchedness will help Republicans at the Midterms

By   /  September 30, 2018  /  Deconstructing Headlines, Martyn Bradbury, Most Recent Blogs  /  23 Comments

In the post MeToo landscape where accusation is the evidence and due process simply a means of privilege to protect itself, the Kavanaugh case has exposed a division that seems impossible to bridge. One side demands the accuser be believed and any attempt to critique or question the accusation is as much a crime as the abuse itself while the other side demands due process while denying due process.

Paula Bennett complaining about Jacinda using an Ad agency for UN trip is rich when you consider National’s meth hysteria campaign

By   /  September 30, 2018  /  Deconstructing Headlines, Martyn Bradbury, Most Recent Blogs  /  12 Comments

The National Party are so spiteful and so desperate to hide their spite they will make any mountain out of a mole hill. It would be funny if the mainstream media weren’t so happy to feed it like they did the meth hysteria.

MUST READ: The case against the hollowness of Jacinda’s Labour – we need more than words!

By   /  September 29, 2018  /  Christine Rose, Most Recent Blogs, Setting The Agenda  /  26 Comments

Are we so relieved that this government isn’t National-led that we will settle for less than what might have been? Now that with relief we finally have a Labour-led Government, have we lost a sense of inquiry and our ear for irony?

CTO-gate – Smoke Gets In Our Eyes

By   /  September 28, 2018  /  Chris Trotter, Most Recent Blogs, Setting The Agenda  /  28 Comments

THE QUESTION IS, can they pull it off? Can the National Party do to Jacinda Ardern what Labour tried, but failed, to do to John Key: destroy their opponents’ most powerful political asset? The other question is: If this is National’s intention, then how deep does the conspiracy go?
