    Reblogged this on The Inquiring Mind and commented:
    Something we hear a lot of from politicians, especially from Labour,the Greens and to a lesser extent a National. Ardern, Twyford and Robertson are primary offenders, let us not forget James Shaw, Marama Davidson, and of course Winston Peters and Shane Jones.
    Internationally we get Trump and his enablers,Sanders, Warren, plus many others In the UK a leading offender is Corbyn, Rebecca Long- Bailey, plus of course Boris and his ilk.
    Back to NZ , Bridges and his team are also guilty,but not as much as the Coalition
