New Zealanders are not an ATM
Is low-level sociopsychological language, it pits one stratum of society against another. Its unfunny how those doing ok still seem to want to see themselves as victims.
Postponed. The pale stale males are still beating up on Metiria, including a very silly column by Garner. What do Tuku Morgans underpants have to do with anything anymore. Christ on a stick, get down from that high horse would ya!
Mental health? How fit is your mind. In Mr Coleman's case he is unspokenly saying
'Hey look at me I am a functioning member of parliament I cant have any mental health problems because of who I am'.
How wrong that thinking is....
I can think of quite a few people who should go somewhere and do some honest reflection on their beliefs and how they have come to them, and while they're about it a critical reappraisal of their actions might be handy for those whose lives their policies are going to influence.
I would probably disagree with you on where the more urgent need for that is, currently.
When all the finger pointing and blaming white supremacy and journalism
You are wide of the mark there. It is govt policies for the past 30yrs and the beliefs behind those that are being called into question here. Labour doesnt get a free pass there as well as the incumbents. It is clear that those ideas were adopted by those who walked the halls of government during that time. They had/are having a disastrous effect.
Nothing that wasn't warned about, at the time. Neoliberalism, Free markets, user pays, competitive business models blah blah blah. And those who were at the bottom of societies increasingly pyramiding shape for historic cultural reasons or being a mother or any increasing number of reasons, suffered and struggled. Go figure!
As for some of the commentary provided on this by journalism, it was paper thin at best and riddled with weird personal bias. Did the journalist's ancestry/ upbringing/sex have something to do with it? Well it was often opinion so you work it out. Sometimes ones opinions arent all that flash.
Its an opinion piece so throw in a few cliches, slag off an easy target, show irreverent support for the status quo, like you're a right wing rebel with a cause. And Stuff will put it up on its website to fill in a few hours of clickbait
Fucking tossers, media at its laziest. Damien Grant can fuck right off too another useless white male sucking off the teet of those he sucks up too. And he has the gall to call others bludgers.
dont put your ignorance on me go read a book
Honesty is about abiding by the law of the day, truth is more to do with morality, and authenticity which I think comes more from personal insight
You have no idea do you? here let me help
read this for starters
All the white boys are out offering condescending remarks with their heads held at a certain angle.
So, Finlay, the poor of this country would have been better served than by the likes of Metiria fessing up the way she did. Oh Really !!!!!! BY WHO?
The poor dont get to chose a champion, you do realize that dont you Fuck knuckle!
Geddis is just ineffectual for all his qualifications and law learning.
Be proud of yourself NZ be real fucking proud.
The darker side of our country has just been exposed to the world again.
Our collective mind is small and narrow, kind of like a butt crack
