Everyone from big Paddy Gower to the avocado millennials over at the Spinoff have shit on the idea of giving taxpayer funds to the All Blacks.

By   /  August 28, 2018  /  Deconstructing Headlines, Martyn Bradbury, Most Recent Blogs  /  24 Comments

Economic growth under National relied on a speculative property bubble, rebuilding from natural disasters and mass immigration, that’s all that kept the GDP inflated and ‘rock star’ like. Low business confidence is proof that fake growth model is over and the business community know it.

Chelsea Manning exposed war crimes, Molyneux and Southern peddle petty psudeo-science bigotry, for National to champion one and damn the other is hypocrisy of the worst kind!

Let’s be honest about New Zealand’s ‘Paedophile village’ shall we? WARNING: You won’t like the answer

By   /  August 26, 2018  /  Deconstructing Headlines, Martyn Bradbury, Most Recent Blogs  /  24 Comments

First of all, why the Christ is this being called a ‘Paedophile village’? It immediately scares the living bejesus out of locals and sets the nation at unease. It suggests a malignant tumour of a community that must be treated with the same mercy as you treat cancer, i.e. none at all.

‘Paedophile village’ is the very worst of the mainstream media selling clickbait.

Why not call it ‘Utter-failure-of-social-policy village’? Because that is truly what this represents.

Reflecting on Greg Boyed’s tragic passing and the mental health of men in their 40s

By   /  August 23, 2018  /  Deconstructing Headlines, Martyn Bradbury, Most Recent Blogs  /  26 Comments

I think we fail to acknowledge the stresses and depression that grip many men in their 40s because we believe it’s solely a youth issue. Men in their 40s need as much support and help as they can access, unfortunately the run down mental health system in this country is effectively broken.

Prison reform: Jacinda’s other nuclear free moment – 6 issues that need consideration

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

The Justice Conference has wrapped up and it is a relief to see that the madness of our prison industrial complex is finally being challenged by some genuine political courage.

This is an area of social policy that I have been passionate about for a very long time. I do believe you judge a society on how they treat their least respected and the way we treat prisoners should be a national scandal.
