The only reason farmers suddenly care about the water is because they know Labour will win

By   /  August 23, 2017  /  Deconstructing Headlines, Martyn Bradbury, Most Recent Blogs  /  6 Comments

The only reason the bloody corporate farmers who are intensifying dairy suddenly care about the water is because they sense the outrage from voters at the way they have stolen and polluted our water ways while giving us expensive product because they charge us what they can get off shore.

Watch for the ‘no policy’ sexist attack on Jacinda by the right in the election

By   /  August 23, 2017  /  Deconstructing Headlines, Martyn Bradbury, Most Recent Blogs  /  3 Comments

Jacinda’s popularity is based on hope, emotional intelligence, compassion based reasoning and the ability to connect personally and empathetically to voters.

GUEST BLOG: Dr Liz Gordon – No hope for equality for women in next Parliament

By   /  August 23, 2017  /  Guest Blogs + Sponsored Posts, Most Recent Blogs  /  4 Comments

Women holding out for gender equality in Parliament after this election are likely to be disappointed.  The main mechanism for achieving gender equity within parties is the party list, and most of the parties that will do well in 2017 are far from gender equal.
