The Horror of Nicky Stevens suicide & the gutlessness of the current Government (where’s your politics of kindness now?)

By   /  February 20, 2019  /  Deconstructing Headlines, Martyn Bradbury, Most Recent Blogs  /  No Comments

Labour’s greatest challenge in front of it right now is the ideological right wing arseholes who have taken up residence in our public service. Like cancerous tumours, they have spread their hateful right wing beliefs and infected every inch of what should be a welfare system designed to protect and help rather than punish.

I am well aware of the groundswell of support online for this man, and I have not yet seen one supporter of him who can actually begin to articulate any of the purported use of this man’s writing to make society a better place.

Just Like “Rogernomics”, A Capital Gains Tax Would Traumatize The New Zealand Economy

By   /  February 19, 2019  /  Chris Trotter, Most Recent Blogs, Setting The Agenda  /  15 Comments

LATER THIS WEEK, the recommendations of the Tax Working Group will become public. It is highly likely that a Capital Gains Tax (CGT) of some description will be near the top of the Working Group’s “To Do” list. How should Labour handle this extremely hot potato? The tax which all the experts tell us we have to have has much to recommend it theoretically, but, in the bluntest of practical political terms, it could very easily destroy this government.

So this is a curious thing. The recent attack in Kashmir was carried out by Jaish-e-Mohammed, headed by a figure by the name of Masood Azhar. Understandably, India sought UN assistance in curtailing this ongoing threat; a move which the People’s Republic of China has (once again) blocked. Just as it has consistently done for more than ten years now.

Huawei, this clumsy ham fisted attempt to make us want 5G so that we can pointlessly watch movies on our phones while we walk around in urban centres by using rugby metaphors just won’t do!

…after getting roasted by his base for his capitulation on the shut down with nothing to show, Trump has manufactured a national emergency so he can build his bloody wall so that when he goes back to his angry electorate in 2020 he can show them he’s completed their collective vanity project.
