By   /  October 4, 2018  /  Most Recent Blogs, Setting The Agenda  /  30 Comments

I feel sorry for Trumps, junior and senior.  Don’t laugh.  I really do.  For them, the world is now populated by #MeToo unleashed.  Unpredictable and venal women who, at the drop of a hat, will claim sexual assault in order to get what they want.  Poor Don Jr fears for his sons, in a world where women have power.

Why I fear Kavanaugh wretchedness will help Republicans at the Midterms

By   /  September 30, 2018  /  Deconstructing Headlines, Martyn Bradbury, Most Recent Blogs  /  23 Comments

In the post MeToo landscape where accusation is the evidence and due process simply a means of privilege to protect itself, the Kavanaugh case has exposed a division that seems impossible to bridge.

Jihad Vs McLanguage in Maori language week

By   /  September 13, 2018  /  Curwen Rolinson, Most Recent Blogs, Setting The Agenda  /  7 Comments

Over the past year or two, I’ve endeavoured to popularize the concept of “Jihad Vs McWorld”. If you want a really tangible demonstration of “McWorld” in action, look no further than the McDonalds workplace policy brought to light by Newshub this evening – wherein Maori staff responding to Maori customers attempting to place an order in Te Reo Maori, was firmly clamped down upon by McDonalds’ management, on grounds that “English is our McLanguage” .

What should have been big news here, had the culprit been any state other than Israel, whose brutal acts of piracy in international waters, along with the tasering and throwing into prison of a New Zealand national, besides his being robbed of private property, hardly attracted any NZ news media interest.
