Under the Radar: CTU inflation chart, 3 Water Labour lies & this weird finger chopping Trump loving freak

We here at TDB like to be first at pointing shit out, but in this never ending 24-7 news clusterfuck of a media environment we all live in, even we can slip up and miss something that should get more focus, so from time to time we’ll run Under the Radar News, things of note that escaped attention.

This week, the CTU inflation chart, 3 Water Labour lies & this weird finger chopping Trump loving freak.


The CTU inflation chart:

The CTU released this chart early in the week that clearly showed Government spending IS NOT the main generator for the shocking inflation we are seeing…

…if Government spending was the driver of NZ inflation, the gap between our GDP and CPI would be enormous. It is not. Despite the Right continuing to claim Government spending is driving up prices, the media still don’t point out that’s not true!


3 Water Labour lies:

Labour put this out on Mother’s Day…

…now I love Labour, but Christ this is disingenuous to the point of being openly manipulative.

Firstly, the image of the baby bottle?


On Mothers Day?


The painful and excruciating truth is that the claim of 34 000 people getting sick each year from polluted water is so weak it’s embarrassing.

It’s based on a 2006 report!

That’s right,  a 16 year old report on sickness from polluted water!

I can’t see how data that old can be used to justify something as radical as 3 Waters and as manipulative as a baby bottle advert on Mothers Day!

Don’t get me wrong, I want water nationalised and the State should just seize the assets under the Public Works Act, but using very old data to sell this in this manner is pretty fucking audacious!


This weird finger chopping Trump loving freak:

Nothing about this weird story if a Farmer shopping off the finger of a burglar makes any sense at all…

Finger chop trial divides town – Teen’s family fume while locals laud verdict

A family member of a teenage burglar who had his finger cut off says the boy had the mental age of a 10-year-old, and it is “disgusting” the father and son were found not guilty.

William Burr was found not guilty on six charges and Shaun Burr was found not guilty on four charges after arguing self defence at a trial in the High Court in Hamilton on Wednesday.

The trial divided the small and rural Waitomo town of Piopio where it happened; with some saying they couldn’t be more happy with the result, and others being horrified and disappointed.

The Burrs declined to talk immediately after the verdict on Wednesday, saying they needed to be with family and well-wishers.

…until you read this…

…that this feral lunatic could chop off a kids finger and get away with it after such a history of racial antagonism says something about the banjo twanging culture we live in.
