Around 8pm on 13 September, this blogger posted on National’s Facebook page – see: NZNATS. I left a message leaving links to two of my recent blogposts,

They must not’ve like the message nor my questions. The post I made vanished within minutes. No explanation offered by the operators of that FB page.

I left a comment querying the disappearance of my posting,

One more try.

This post referred to National party policies regarding unemployed, solo-mums, and other beneficiaries. A pertinent topic worthy of debate, I thought?

It seems  that National is not a Party that brooks dissent or welcomes questioning of it’s policies. This is symptomatic of a Party that has lost trust in the public and fears people.

The term for this state of affairs, I believe, is a seige mentality.
