An $80 000 lullaby
What a fucking omnishambles.
If you needed a better example of how utterly captured this new Government is at the hands of MFAT, look no further than this colossal turd of an event.
The ridiculous tantrum over Jacinda’s extra flight, the quarrelling over refugees between Winston and Jacinda, the gutless and spineless capitulation to authoritarian Nauru and brutal Australia over their immoral detention camps, the impotence over Barbara Dreaver’s arrest – on and on it bloody went.
Bloody MFAT happened.
Crossed wires, deliberate repression of genuine dissent and officials running their own agendas, the real motive behind the scenes was the concerted effort to counter the Chinese and the agreement of cyber surveillance was the goal.
Everything else was forced to one side so that unity against China was the real achievement. No criticism of Australia’s disgusting refugee policy, no criticism of Nauru’s authoritarianism, no embarrassing Australia by announcing an increase in refugees – all unity, all smiles.
All to push a private anti-China security line.
MFAT played this new Government over the TPPA and they played them at Nauru, Jacinda and Winston should demand explanations as to how and why this became a fiasco.
Who is actually leading the agenda here? MFAT, the GCSB or Canberra because it sure as hell wasn’t the NZ Government.
