Our national anthem…

.

 

 

New-Zealand-240-animated-flag-gifs.

.

God of Nations at Thy feet,
In the bonds of love we meet,
Hear our voices, we entreat,
God defend our free land.
Guard Pacific’s triple star
From the shafts of strife and war,
Make her praises heard afar,
God defend New Zealand.

 

Now I understand why we implore “God defend our free land”.

Because as our lying Prime Minister and corrupt government  run roughshod over our civil liberties; spy and snoop at will; plan to turn our once-liberal nation into a fully-fledged, Stasi-style, Surveillance State…

… half the population are asleep and don’t seem to give a shit.

How else does one explanation the latest Roy Morgan poll?!?!

National Party:  51% (+ 4%)

Maori Party: 1.5% (- 0.5%)

ACT NZ: 1% (+ 0.5%)

United Future: 0%

Labour: 29% (- 2%);

Greens:10% (- 1.5%),

New Zealand First: 4% (- 0.5%),

Mana Party: 1% (- 0.5%),

Conservative Party of NZ: 1.5% (unchanged)

Others 1% (up 0.5%).

(Roy Morgan: This latest New Zealand Roy Morgan Poll on voting intention was conducted by telephone – both landline and mobile telephone, with a NZ wide cross-section of 824 electors from July 15-28, 2013. Of all electors surveyed 4% (unchanged) didn’t name a party.Source)

So according to this, if Key burned down Parliament; annexed Tasmania; and declared the country a One Party state with himself as Leader-for-Life – his popularity would soar into the stratosphere?!

Jeezus H, I had no idea that a collective longing for soft-fascism was so deeply ingrained in our culture.

Silly me, I thought Muldoon was an aberration.

    Please tell me that this poll was taken BEFORE Labour’s housing policy announcement on Sunday….

      It was taken between July 15 to 28, Louis. Sunday being the very last day of polling (the 28th).

      So I’m guessing that Labour’s housing policy would’ve had minimal effect on the outcome. I guess we’ll have to wait a month for the next results…

    So the only two Parties to increase their vote were National and Act? Really? I love it because if ever there was a credibility with polls that proved how off the truth they are, this is it. National at 51%? Yes, sure which is why Key was courting NZ First. Ignore the polls because they are just a distraction from the truth that we all know. And if you want to conduct a real poll, just pick 100 names from whatever source you have access to ( ie client list) without divulging where you got the names from.

      I’m not too fussed about ACT’s result, Jen. That result is so much within the margin of error as to be meaningless.

      I’m thinking that ACT’s return will depend purely on how gullible Epsom voters are… (And how gullible Ohariu voters are.)

      This poll is useless for electorates, in fact National could be more popular in polls, but lose plenty of electorates. National is just as overconfident as Labour was when it was turfed out, a lot can change in election year. If National gets back in I will be glad I left New Zealand while I could, it is rapidly turning into the far right hell hole of the pacific.

    Welcome to my world. Thank Roger Douglas and Richard Prebble, and the other cohorts of the ’80’s Labour Government. They laid the foundations for this neo-liberal/fascism/dictatorship we are seeing being built today in our country. Incrementally we are seeing our rights stripped away. We are becoming serfs in our own land.

    Back when muldoon was leading he became such a drunk from the Quilt of realisation of his betrayal! KEY @THE OTHER leaders have yet 2 fully realise the full implications of their traitorous acts! Being puppets in the GLOBAL emancipation of all free citizens! Not till all freedoms are lost will the ignorant masses AWAKE, ! then like those poor souls in nazi germany found out? It was to late!

    God of sheep at Thy feet,
    In the bonds of debt we meet,
    Hear our voices, for the GCSB,
    God defend every other land,
    Hoard Pacific’s last gold bar,
    From the shafts of international law,
    Make her people flee afar,
    God left across the tas-man.

    I just can’t believe it. Or is it because there seems to be no effective opposition?

  7. 2 August 2013 at 11:23 am

    No its just cause john key dont give shit and will do whatever he likes however he likes no matter what anyone says he is as Russell Norman says worse than muldoon and the shipley govt.

    aotearoawolfing :
    God of sheep at Thy feet,
    In the bonds of debt we meet,
    Hear our voices, for the GCSB,
    God defend every other land,
    Hoard Pacific’s last gold bar,
    From the shafts of international law,
    Make her people flee afar,
    God left across the tas-man.
