    help keep the media in check

    Seems no one can be relied upon to keep themselves in check anymore, including the media. I'm thinking of Spinoff who commissioned a former National ministerial adviser to write a puerile piece that the Nats must defend against "socialists and populists" Using cooked statistics about how well capitalism has served us!

  • Hard News: All Change,

    trumped up cracks in the coalition

    Clutching at their pearls or at straws. It will be one or the other.
    Maybe they will take a leaf from the book of sports writers, where fantastical coincidence and spurious statistics still hold currency. Where a woman PM can cause the fucking All Blacks to lose a game!
    A pox on all sports writers.

  • Speaker: The Government lost the election, in reply to Sacha,

    business interests have been campaigning

    When the societal scales have been tilted in your favour for what seems like at least 3 centuries with very occasional rebalancing. It gets to the point where those who have benefitted think they have a monopoly the way society is organised. But right at the moment, they need to seriously pull their head in and navel-gaze for a while. Their agenda should be considered of minor concern, very minor.

    your pool was as shallow

    Thats the mirage effect at work. Sunlight glistening on those tranquil waters gives the illusion, to shills, they can just swan dive in and the waters will part gracefully.

    Just like National thinks it can shit all over anyone, but their shit doesnt give off an odour so no one will know they are under a faecal downpour.
    Wrong again.
    And for you on a positive note. Your ego is already in recovery mode, your bleating gives that away.

    *how* is the ad wrong? Nobody seems keen on refuting it

    You just want someone to prove your ad wrong? Within your confines ... sheeez We've been playing that game for centuries.
    If you are in the advertising business you should know its all in the presentation. And well... about that. Do you think your ads were a crucial factor in the election or are you coat tailing off a Nats win?

    Because it’s all true.

    You are pathologically wrong. Carry on like this and you'll resemble a Trumpian.
    Maybe you secretly desire that.
    Using a real name doesnt mean you arent a troll, as you generously demonstrate.
    Unintentionally for sure.
    Tho the bridge you have chosen for your hidey-hole , is good governance, and anyone who dares cross it is fair game.

    emotional reaction

    Yes cause god forbid you show anything resembling a feeling, because to the fucked up minds who wheel out this shit that would mean you have lost the argument.
    Dining on the neoliberal diet for decades does jade the senses. But I guess these well-heeled cretins have developed a taste for dishes the rest of us cant stomach.

    OOOooo so Glenn(thanx KR) are you one of the advertising peeps responsible for Nationals campaign? And within the narrow confines in which you operate those campaigns are considered "legal".
    Yeah I put that in scare quotes because while they may not actually break laws they are morally repugnant. Not that you would know how to gauge that because you most likely have a shit moral compass when it comes to what you do for a living.
    A quick rule of thumb if you have to run it by the legal department its a piece of crap.Tell that to the rest of those preening nincompoops wouldya.
