Who woulda thunk a Czech drug smugglers and lime scooters would dominate the news cycle in a way environmental apocalypse, China buying MPs and state house meth hysteria couldn’t?
If only the National Party were as vigorous in their research of state house meth hysteria as they are of Czech extasy dealers.
It’s embarrassing how public debate can revolve around a Czech extasy dealer and not Chinese interests trying to buy 2 National Party MPs.
In the NZ Herald there were 7 news stories on the IPCC report, compare that with over 25 news stories for those fucking Lime Scooters. It really says something about us as a people when electric scooters can generate far more attention than the end of the planet as we know it and a Czech extasy dealer can create more debate than a star housing meth hysteria that cost $120million, threw 900 beneficiaries onto the street and removed children from families.
PS – China has now encroached into Niue and are attempting to take the Cook Islands. But you know, Czech dealers and Lime Scooters.
