John Key – Practicing Deflection 101


Full story


As much as this blogger wholeheartedly  supports  the concept of legalised euthanasia – with safeguards similar to that in The Netherlands – I view Dear Leader’s comments on Newstalk ZB earlier this week with contempt and disdain.

This is a shameful attempt at using a highly emotive issue for political ends to deflect from National’s on-going political ineptness and mis-management of the economy.

Let’s not forget;

  • unpopular asset sales
  • growing inequality in incomes
  • rising unemployment
  • on-going victimisation of unemployed, solo-mums (but never solo-dads), and other welfare beneficiaries
  • rising number of fatalities in Afghanisatan
  • cutting the state sector and social services
  • privatisation-by-stealth of our prisons, schools, and other state services
  • inability to address alcohol abuse by not implementing all 150 recommendations from the Law Commission
  • more people leaving New Zealand
  • a stall reconstruction of Christchurch
  • falling wages
  • and increasing child poverty

These are the matters that National is trying desperately to deflect our attention from.

These are the issues that National is failing badly to address.

    Indeed Frank… too easy to spot these days. They look like amateurs at it now.
