The Report Card :F — Jacinda Adern is down in the polls, depending which poll you want to believe (but not News Hub’s Media Works survey [cos that’s a really credible source]) . She is trying but her smiles just not cutting it.
Quick let the corporate globalists give her a prize (Noble Peace Prize nomination) to distract us. So our head prefect, Woman’s Weekly, baby kissing, politician can look good again – She does not deserve this. Its an absolute neo-liberal spin doctor job and thankfully people are at last now seeing how it works: of course it took the Aussies (who can spot a bullshitter a hundred miles away ).
The poor (under 30 k) are not happy.
The Islamic community: think Aderns a two faced talk piece and selfie expert. One who capitalised on their tragedy and was nowhere to be seen afterwards. Are furious at the lack of transparency in the Royal Inquiry
The pot smokers: are not happy they know Adern plans to give pot to big business.
The farmers: are not happy (to be fair no surprises there).
The Anti 1080 crowd: are not happy.
Gun owners: are not happy.
The non gun owning hippies: are bummed.
The peace and anti mass surveillance movement: (the part not run and silenced by traitor greens and right wing Labour academics ) are pissed.
The TPPA movement: (the part not run and silenced by traitor greens and right wing Labour academics ) pissed.
Most iwi: minus those who are for the TPPA, are appalled at her administration betrayal of Labour standards.
The elderly: feel abandoned by new labour.
The West Coast (Pike River families): remain loyal but only due to the work of Andrew Little.
The Disporosa: mid 40- 50’s educated enough (lived through Rogernomics) to see through the spin – no life career, no life partner, no land, know they will be fucked whoever they vote for.
The Maybe Baby’s
Leaves her potential vote base;
Unions; Teachers, Nurses uncertain: they want to support Labour (as much because they tend to be young and professional themselves) but are frustrated by a lack of job security and pay that does not reflect the pressure and increasing work load and pressure (1 in 3 kids will have some form of drug alcohol addiction issue) they face.
Tradies: swing voters will vote for any one who looks good and is on TV in between Sky Sports and The Block. Happy to back a winner as long as their is a box of piss in fridge and high purchase payment on house mortgage, SUV, big TV met. If these fall over will turn into super experts on whats wrong with government. Key thing keep making sure the tradies box of piss and TV are protected at all cost and the All Blacks are winning.
Gangs & Super Poor Pacifika: last election in deal done with Kelvin Davies, Hone Harawira and Mana (& Brian Tamaki) 60,000 people enlisted on the electoral role in a week – with the intention of voting Labour. Post March 15 a massive vote block now exist and is growing but Tamaki feel he was betrayed and not given the access to government funding he thought he would get, So has instead begun forging gang connections to make use of this newly created voting block himself – its unlikely Labour will get that support back and instead we shall see an increased radicalisation and politicisation of gangs instead.
The YES Vote
Students: subjected to massive sophisticated targeting into think climate response is about the planet not about increasing taxes and protecting the 1% (war, pesticides, food water shelter privatisation ) share portfolio and making the poor pay for their gluttonous life style. Major political parties have worked out the elderly are too expensive to have as electoral supporters and better to have young voting demographic. One that focuses on short terms gains and is not so focused on long term cost facing NZ or calculate consequence of debt caused by privatisation.
LQGBT (I will reserve this as a generalisation for the millennial’s in the movement who tend to be the loudest concerning what LQGBT want) who frankly have done themselves little favour and will down the road face blow back by proving to be a lobby group focused solely in their own cause and not willing to defend other people’s rights. Or being that actually concerned on anything other than their own world problems. If National gave them a good deal they would jump ship in a tick.
Ngai Tahu who frankly have done them selves little favour and will down the road face blow back by proving to be a lobby group focused solely on their own causes and not willing to defend other people’s rights. The Corporate iwi board does not reflect necessarily the hapu base belief and outside the academic apparatchik circles hapu dissatisfaction at corporate iwi decisions is growing.
The Middle Professional Class who with neo-liberal angst disorder frankly have done them selves little favour high levels of cognitive dissonance and will down the road face blow back by proving to a lobby group focused solely on their own causes and not willing to defend other people’s rights.
Doc Forrest & Bird Crowd: see above for factors in play (oppose working class middle class non professional who are classified under anti 1080).
IT Industry: who seem to have no problem being a manufacturing design base for regimes like Saudi Arabia/Israel. regimes which this government has not called into account, who will use those designs and products to create a war machine.
Police & Military: who got a whopping pay rises and massive budget increase last budget.
Meanwhile the inquiry into child abuse is a joke. Meanwhile the inquiry in NZ Miliary war crimes is a joke. Meanwhile the inquiry in to Mosque attacks is a joke and criticised by the former Race relation Commissioner Jorris De Bres
The silence on Julian Assange is deafening. The silence on Chelsea manning is deafening. The silence on Jamal Kashoggi is deafening. The silence on the Refugees of Yemen is deafening so much not being said.
