By   /  January 17, 2019  /  Deconstructing Headlines, Martyn Bradbury, Most Recent Blogs  /  No Comments

What an embarrassment for Millennial activism and what a message to those who are serious about making actual change in society, inclusion can’t come at the cost of exclusion.  After fighting for the right to wear the Police uniform in the Pride Parade, Police were never going to agree to taking it off and the woke activists pushing for this knew it, here was an email PAPA sent out to their base admitting as much when they stacked the last meeting…

What is really being revealed in this rage against littering tourists

By   /  January 17, 2019  /  Deconstructing Headlines, Martyn Bradbury, Most Recent Blogs  /  5 Comments

Why should an industry that takes and takes and takes and seems to give so little back be allowed a free ride for so long? If the planet is running out of pristine places, than what we have should be set at a premium price.

SHOCK HORROR – NZ TEENAGERS DO STUPID THINGS – STOP THE PRESSES!

By   /  January 16, 2019  /  Deconstructing Headlines, Martyn Bradbury, Most Recent Blogs  /  18 Comments

We simply can not juggle multiple ideas that social policy must protect life over property, that teenagers do stupid things and that changing our chase policy – AS MANY OTHER COUNTRIES HAVE – to only chasing violent offenders is too much for your ordinary Kiwi to comprehend all at the same time.

..I’ve often said the only moment this insanity of allowing cops to chase kids to death will ever change is if the victims are white middle class kids, because when it’s brown poor teenagers dying, middle NZ doesn’t give two shits, but the millisecond it’s kids they recognise and can identify with, well then brothers and sisters SOMETHING MUST BE DONE!
