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.
