Bulletin 10/8/2017


Metiria Turei resigns from the Greens co-leadership.  The narratives in the different echo chambers are so divergent it’s unreal – to the Greens supporters she was martyred, Labour is reconciliatory, ACT gloats, the other parties do not talk about it officially but their supporters sure do.  Labour is looking better in the polls, and they refocus on their range of issues of water, rail, and housing.  National do their best to scaremonger on Labour’s proposal to put a price on water extraction.


Echo Chamber National:

(!) There is no economic analysis presented to support the claim that a price on water will increase food prices:


Echo Chamber Labour:

On polls:


On Metiria Turei:


On water:


On light rail:


On housing:


Echo Chamber Green:

Metiria Turei resigns:


On the Resource Management Act:


On seabed mining:


Echo Chamber New Zealand First:

On debt risk:


This was Trump’s strategy, too – delegitimise the debates before they happen:


Echo Chamber Maori Party:

Nothing significant.


Echo Chamber ACT:

Seymour’s incoherent hypocrisy on Turei continues, is glad that Turei’s family can now be spared the scrutiny that he himself tried so hard to stir up:


On water pricing:


Echo Chamber United Future:

Nothing significant.
