The objective of this blog is to critique popular media narratives about NZ politics, and to place the 2017 election in a broader historical context. It will provide analysis and commentary from a more academic perspective. Over the next few months I’ll share some thoughts about why this election is different and what might happen next. Thanks for reading and I hope you enjoy.
