Newstalk ZB host Mike Hosking is threatening to move to Australia if New Zealand doesn’t reject the Government’s “left-leaning progressive thinking”, garnering mixed reactions on social media.
Hosking called the Government an “ideological outlier” in a column for the NZ Herald on Thursday morning, ahead of Finance Minister Grant Robertson’s Budget announcement at 2pm.
“The world isn’t rejecting left-leaning progressive thinking for no reason, they’re rejecting it because it doesn’t work,” Hosking wrote for the Herald.
“We’ll get there, next year or at the next election. If we don’t, I’m off to Australia.”
It’s not just Hosking who keeps threatening this. Th Right in NZ seem to think constantly threatening us with leaving for Australia will make us stop voting Left.
Like it’s a punishment.
What makes me laugh is hw vacant th that is.
Climate change is on track to hit Australia harder than anywhere else…
Science agency the CSIRO and Bureau of Meteorology predict temperature rises of up to 5.1c in Australia by 2090 in their most comprehensive forecast yet
…Hosking and his right wing mates are jumping out of the socialist frypan of Jacinda and jumping into the catastrophic climate crisis fire of Australia are they?
And we should care about this why?
It would be funny watching right wing people suffer from something they don’t believe is happening.
Could you imagine Mike doing his show from Australia?
“Good morning New Zealand, this is Mike Hosking Breakfast live from Sydney. For some reason bush fire season is all year now and the ocean is eating the coastlines. Back with the National Party after the break. Happy Days’.
