You can’t ‘take the politics’ out of climate change – it’s no longer a scientific question as to whether or not it’s happening, inaction is now a political problem and seeing as your party has the largest number of climate deniers in NZ, that makes it YOUR problem!

Who is the most disingenuous pile of political garbage? Jami-Lee Ross, Mark Mitchell or David Bennett?

By   /  June 15, 2018  /  Deconstructing Headlines, Martyn Bradbury, Most Recent Blogs  /  20 Comments

Jacinda has left the building and the Nats are in attack mode trying to destabilise the Government under Winston’s term as caretaker.

The attacks though are just such disingenuous bullshit, look at the utter crap being served up this week by Jami-Lee Ross, Mark Mitchell and David Bennett, it’s incredibly difficult to work out who is the biggest pile of political garbage.

Dear Labour – how you are going to get screwed by the Hobbit (again)

By   /  June 14, 2018  /  Deconstructing Headlines, Martyn Bradbury, Most Recent Blogs  /  8 Comments

The media will go into meltdown that Labour are trying to pass law that will kill off the LOTR TV series being filmed here, Matthew Hooton will go onto TV to breathlessly tell every political panel show that Labour just can’t help but suck up to their union mates while the rest of the country suffers. Mike Hosking will say it’s proof the Unions have run amok. Kate Hawkesby will ask why does the Left hate NZ made creativity. Barry Soper will ask why the Left hates Peter Jackson so much and Heather Du Plesses-Allan will predict the end of the new Government and the resurrection of John Key.

For every sanctimonious clown claiming North Korea are human rights violators – just consider why that is?

By   /  June 13, 2018  /  Deconstructing Headlines, Martyn Bradbury, Most Recent Blogs  /  23 Comments

I’m not suggesting for one second that North Korea aren’t human rights abusers, but the West’s role in causing the damage that empowered this regime always gets lost, especially when so much of the American Left are now wanting to paint Kim as a ruthless dictator.

What the meth hysteria must teach the Left – The State is the enemy and when will we allow Māori to save us from ourselves?

If beneficiaries were treated holistically by welfare agencies rather than punitively, if the provision of social aid actually cared in a kindness kaupapa, then those human beings in desperation would have the space to heal and rebuild and become productive members of our society in a community resourced to care.

Dumping 3 strikes is smart politics and Andrew Little is the smartest player of smart politics. The man who has touched gold with every portfolio handed to him just screwed this one up and tripped did he?

The real reason Simon Bridges isn’t connecting with National Voters

By   /  June 10, 2018  /  Deconstructing Headlines, Martyn Bradbury, Most Recent Blogs  /  9 Comments

Simon Bridges either embarks upon an internal cultural reformation of civility and generates policy that challenges party status quo and aims to pull a middle class who will be dizzy from petrol price cost increases, mortgage hikes and a public service that isn’t helping over to a milder less angry National Party or he just waits until Judith slides her knife into his back to the cheering of National Party members.

Now the rest of the NZ media comprehend the enormity of the meth hysteria – here’s what won’t happen next

By   /  June 10, 2018  /  Martyn Bradbury, Media Watch, Most Recent Blogs  /  13 Comments

Mix this media contempt for the poor with many middle class landowners who now have tenants in their precious investment portfolios and the fear of a loss of capital gains mixed with neoliberal cultural disgust at self failure for being poor in the first place, and you had all the self interested ingredients and momentum for hysteria to take over.
