By   /  June 14, 2017  /  Deconstructing Headlines, Martyn Bradbury, Most Recent Blogs  /  17 Comments

Corbyn, the NZ Political Left and how we can make it happen this election

By   /  June 10, 2017  /  Deconstructing Headlines, Martyn Bradbury, Most Recent Blogs  /  54 Comments

Watching our NZ Political Left scrambling to associate themselves with Corbyn on social media is a sad joke. Corbyn’s real left policy won the day and robbed Theresa May of a victory in a political comeback not seen since Christ’s resurrection. In NZ, our Left policy is a warmed up cold grey gruel compared to the 7 course Dégustation offered voters in the United Kingdom.

Comey testifies – no smoking gun, Trump safe for now

By   /  June 9, 2017  /  Deconstructing Headlines, Martyn Bradbury, Most Recent Blogs  /  18 Comments

Trump’s mix of corrupt capitalism, brittle ego and aggressive neurotic defensiveness makes trying to derive motive from his behaviour extremely difficult, and I think while Comey’s testimony is completely true and factual, the crazy shit that floats through the President’s mind which he can use to defend his comments makes impeaching him successfully an extremely unlikely event.
