Bulletin 17/2/2017

Summary:

I was never sure if the National people were savvy propagandists pushing their version of reality, or if they were genuinely tone deaf and oblivious.  Then we get pictures of their Ivanka Trump merchandise and a white person in yellow-face.

As we wind down towards the weekend, Andrew Little visits Gisbourne to unveil Labour’s regional development policy there.  The Greens continue to talk about a range of environmental and social issues, from river quality to climate change to Australia’s detention of refugees.  And Winston Peters decides to be rude to Australia.
