chris trotter has a valid hack at labour…..accurately painting them as morally adrift…with political survival being the only ethos…(this has been obvious since post 02…rejection by the voters is clarks’ deep darkest nightmare..that is what drives her..)
hence her emulation of holyoake…..firmly staking out the centre/right(ish) territory…with the longterm in mind..
trotter also refers to this administrations’ pattern of defending the indefensible…from ncea on..
the latest example of this being broadcasting minister mahary responding to ian frasers’ reasoned evaluation of the flaws in the tvnz model with a resolute…”..there is nothing to see here folks…you just all move right along..” dismissal….
and of course..what grinds my gears about this mob..is the blind eye they turn to the issues of child poverty…financial and social…..
here we are into the third term of a labour government..a booming economy…and a thoroughly gutless labour government….who have done nothing to repair the damage wreacked on the poor by shiply/richardson..as i say…gutless bastards…(how do they sleep..eh..?..they who have it in their hands to right these wrongs….and do nothing…)
(they should change their bloody name….eh..?
it’s an insult to labour leaders of the past..that this lot trade on/betray their works…
and of course then there are the environmental issues that this government will face up to/do something about…..namely..none….our lakes and rivers continue to rot….the air in our cities is foul…with the dairying of the country we are poisoning our environment more and more…and this government just wants to ship more meat to the other side of the world…
they haven’t got a fucken clue really..eh..?
trotter also identifies the moment brash lost the election (that was his to lose…due to labours’ screw-ups) for national….
trotter calls it at that moment in the tv debates when brash started banging on about the ‘mainstream’….and in the process alienating many of those who were tossing up voting for them……
trotter also identifies the greens standing (metiria turei) in te tai tonga split the vote there..and stopping the maori party from taking the seat…..
