Communists lament - McCarten will "forestall revolutionary change"

The World Socialist Web Site is so far left that Matt McCarten is right:
McCarten has “a lifetime of service” in defending capitalism by establishing political safety valves to divert unrest in the working class.

The biggest communists in NZ are the ones in the beehive.

No surprise the "International Socialist Worker" has it all wrong: it's not that McCarten is a capitalist, it is that Key and his National government are communists.

That's what Kathryn Ryan said no National Radio of all places. Most of the rest of the beatup between National & Labour, Key & Cunliffe & McCarten is really just tribalism, not politics.

And this is why the biggest hits against Key's National government: raising the super age, sweetheart deals with Warners and an obsolete union-ridden smelter, even the need to remove poverty traps, are all critiques from the right of National, not from the left.
