On Thursday at the NZ Music Awards Socialist Cindy aka Jacinda Ardern was in attendence and tweeted:

That is interesting given the timing of it. Was she tweeting her support of their music… or was she ‘heart’ing their attack on John Key.

Presumably they think dropping teh c-bomb and telling John key to suck their dicks is classy humour in the Labour party.
But if not then they must have been ‘heart’ing their music – which are songs about welfare fraud, drug abuse, and alcoholism is it that the opposition spokeswoman on Social Development likes?
Most of the songs by this band are all about hating the Government, scamming WINZ and deliberately knocking up their girlfriends so they can get the DBP…
There’s talk of the DPB, getting paid by WINZ, and dodging the bullet when your dole officer tries to make you look for a job.
Initially, the subject matter might be a bit hard to swallow for some audiences – songs about living on the benefit, being an alcoholic and taking deadly drugs like datura are placed prominently at the start of the album and could come across as flippantly celebratory.
And I’m blazed like its just another saturday
The plan appraised, I don’t care I’m on ecstasy
Sit and dis KFC as we lick our lips, and smile as the chicken drips off our finger tips
Nice to see Labour’s Social Development spokesperson endorses classic bludging behaviour ably supported by labour social media guru.
