Don’t forget to be kind to each other …
Ad wanted Labour to refresh… regarding Parker.. I agree.
Good to see this positive outcome; strikes work:
Those of us who had to wrestle with the victims of disinformation may be interested in a technique called "pre-bunking" which is showing positive preliminary results.
This needs broad coverage, wide brushes, funds to back it. Pushed into every corner of the internet.
Danyl astutely applies the arguments of Christopher Lasch in The Revolt of the Elites … and, by extension, the theories of other leading social critics on the Professional-Managerial Class (currently the driving-force of Wokedom) … to the present Government & contemporary New Zealand politics & public bureaucracy.
The notion that a dogged pursuit of self-interest, profound hostility to liberal democratic norms (& indeed to large segments of working people) underlies all the ostentatious moral posturing from this highly privileged class is spot-on. One or two commenters here could do with a good, long gaze into the mirror … but won’t be holding my breath on that one.

brilliant article. The managerial class are sucking up all the funding, while the workers who work in the real world eg nurses are treated like shit.
Thanks Labour. Not
