Duncan Garner: Golriz Ghahraman a ‘clichéd leftie’
Is it just me or does Green MP Golriz Ghahraman comes across as a clichéd leftie who will never surprise you with her view on something.
If we are calling people names and if Golriz Ghahraman is a ‘clichéd leftie’ – does that mean Duncan Garner is a banal redneck who suffers from a bewilderingly gleeful ignorance?
I’ve lost actual count of the amount of times Garner has managed to get the wrong end of the stick on a magnitude of issues and makes calls that are counter productive to the point he’s trying to make.
His performance to date on TV is best summed up by his awkward, self conscious attempt at dancing in the new TV3 promo where everyone wears more white than your average Klan rally after laundry day.
He sways right, left and then clicks his fingers while attempting to find a rhythm to dance to…
…like I said, it sums up his entire career in broadcasting.
If only Golriz was a ‘clichéd leftie’, if she was she would talk about universal health care, fully funded public education, redistributive taxation, better welfare and a systemic repudiation of neoliberalism.
Unfortunately she is a middle class identity politics activist who alienates far more than she recruits.
Her weird desire to press ahead with MMP changes in time for the next election that automatically looked like self interest masquerading as democratic engagement wasn’t ‘clichéd’, it was ill thought out and ultimately derailed.
Can we PLEASE get some ‘clichéd leftie’ politicians? That would be great.
