Did Jacinda tell fibs on TV1 yesterday morning about the police action at #Ihumatao ?
She seems to wink/wince her left eye when not really telling the truth, crossing from patronising into lying?
Here were the 2 points when she gives these ‘tells’: “we do not interfere [with police ops]” and cops thought occupiers were “potentially” going to move.
Listened, intently, to both 11pm and midnight bulletin of RNZ news expecting to hear something about the developing situation at #Ihumatao on Monday night and nothing at all – like it wasn’t happening!
They can play a clip from the BBC about a British girl who has been missing for two days in Malaysia and they can tell us about a local government candidate in Hawkes Bay who can’t park his car somewhere, but when the shit is getting real and hundred cops try to isolate and staunch out Maori Land occupiers at night absolute radio silence.
Just shocking omission from the state broadcaster.
