Police, Casino and Corporate media show their bread is buttered by National
The extraordinary Police over kill towards several hundred student protestors at the National Party conference today show that the NZ Police are as bought and paid for as the Casino the conference was held at and the corporate media whose jaw dropping lack of critical evaluation of Bill English's comments border on the absurd.
Clearly the quiet deal the Police Association has cut with the Government recently ensures they protect the Government with all the passion of field slaves protecting their masters mansion. Phalanx after phalanx of Police blocking Federal Street should end any pretense that the Police are there for you, they are there for them.
The Police are a legitimate political target because they have sided clearly and firmly behind the National Party. Let's see the deal they've cut and compare that with other public services shall we?
The whole thing smells septic against the backdrop of the Casino, a venue benefitting from a corrupt political deal to increase filthy pokie machines as a bribe for a convention center.
Now add the mainstream media. How uncritical can they be?
Here we have Bill English astoundingly holding up a brainless Herald digi-poll claiming NZers wanted more mining! The most disingenuous poll in the world is the Herald digi-poll, holding up anything it divines is as credible as booking a time for the Rapture.
English then has the audacity to criticize any complaints about NZers leaving for Australia? WTF - National made catching up with Australia as one of their main policy planks - now National have failed to do anything about it, suddenly English wants to not only hide it as an issue, they attack anyone pointing out National's failure?
National can only get away with these frauds because the corporate media are lap dogs rather than watchdogs.
The vested self interest on display at the National conference is venal.
